That's not true. But you have to be able to speak the language and not look like an idiot when it comes to technical issues. Otherwise all of those companies really need smart people on the commercial side where the engineers have no clue. However, there are many engineers with MBAs who are able to do both.
Awesome. Did you score a gig already?Tech is fun, I wish I would have discovered it earlier and wasted less time in finance.
Thank you, gentlemen
Guys, I'm not saying that those programs are the same as diploma mills. Perhaps they are even really really good compared to other online MBAs offered by decent schools. But I absolutely stand by my stated opinion that it's not the way to go even for your purposes. I'm genuinely trying to help, but at the end it's not my decision, right? It's your time and your money. Have fun. Best of luck.

Nope, I would say it's better not to have it at all, wait for when you can get into an Exec MBA program instead or something.Online is worthless 99% of the time.
Thanks! It just really makes sense for me on so many levels - I just think academic research fits my personality/skills much better than most other occupations, I like the freedom/independence, and overall it's sort of a lifestyle decision... I can definitely see myself doing that even when I'm 70 and being happy. We'll see, maybe I'm just naive.
Or you can try and understand why people are saying those things? Like we *may* actually want to help you make the right decision. Shocking, I know.
I would hesitate to recommend ANY online program.
Some of my friends would claim that two masters degrees are enough, but who are they to tell me?!?!
