MBA: To be or not to be???
In March 2005, Seth Godin suggested that “Actual experience combined with a dedicated reading of 30 to 40 books might be a better use of time and money than an MBA degree”. Many people wanted to know the answer to this million-dollar question – “What are the titles of those 30-40 volumes?” Well, there’s no single right answer, of course!!!  I’ve seen people with MBAs who make the most out of their acumen and experience; I’ve observed people with MBAs whose degree seemed to add zero value to them; and I’ve met many folks who’re in-between these two extremes.

Analysis of S&P's list of 10 LBO candidates.
I came across this article in Bloomberg news today. It mentions private-equity firms have more than $500 billion of cash waiting to be put to work. The capital must be deployed or else PE firms must return it to their investors. Buyout shops are itching to get their hands on what they see as undervalued assets.

MBA at age over 35. Does it make any sense? | LinkedIn Answers ...
I have been working in IT field for about twelve years.

However, I always worked solo, I mean I was the only responsible for IT in all my past and present organizations. Therefore, I haven't got any experience in management, but I'd like to advance there.
