How important is a degree in business?

“Instead of students studying Literature, Art, History, and Science they would be going through the motions of a scholar while occupying their minds with things that formerly had been learned at a desk as an apprentice in a dreary Victorian counting house.”

That may be the best description of the concerns of the MBA I’ve ever read.

I have my MBA and, to this day, I still don’t know how I feel about it. Sure, it covered a lot of valuable theory and it’s opened doors, but then again I often wonder if the time would have been better spent in industry, honing my skills in the trenches.
