Discuss the questions. 1 Do you think it is a good idea to do a degree which includes work experience? Why/Why not? 2 How useful do you think an MBA is for your own career? Why? 2 Read the quotes about MBA programmes. Which ones do you agree/disagree with? Why? An MBA is expensive, but it gives you skills in all business areas so you can progress quickly in a job.

MBAs are only useful if you do one after you’ve worked for several years.

I think MBAs can help only if you want to change career.
