I'm surprised that I didn't find this topic in any other threads on here so I'll bring it up. I'm finishing my MS in Applied Physics, paid for by my employer. Now I have some choices; I could apply to a PhD program (given my interests probably NE), I could apply to a MBA program, or I could enjoy being able to sleep on the weekends for once. The relative merits pro and con of a PhD have been discussed elsewhere; but what of the MBA option? Again my employer would pay for it so I wouldn't be incurring any student debt. Does anyone have any strong opinions on the topic?
