But what about the "time value of money?"

Going back for an MBA is a good two years of your life... maybe four if you take night classes. There are multiple ways to use that time to position yourself to make more money.

If you're a tech geek, I'd argue your time is better spent becoming an entrepreneur. Instead of an MBA, dedicate yourself 10 hours per week on a side project, and try to build it as a business. You will fail a few times... so pick up books on the subject, and get better. Eventually, you'll be making more money, and have concrete proof that you know how to run a business.

Will this translate to being a VP in a large firm? Maybe not... but will it build the skills to run a medium sized firm? Probably... but in either case you will almost certainly make more money.

I must say the financial experience they got in my MBA courses gave them tools to position their company and products for greater success.
