That graphic is hilarious...Read it then think, "yes...just do that." Easy peasy, lemon squeezy.
I think your life has already been changed by this inside information on MBAs.
I always liked something a friend of mine said after he got his MBA. He got it because it was a required lodge pin in order to move "up the ladder". The class material was useless bilge, with the exception of a couple practicum courses he took. One was conducted as a practical business exercise executed by the entire class, which was taught by a local business leader. The other was essentially job shadowing where you worked one-on-one with a local mid-level manager one day a week.
As someone with an MBA, I agree. Some of the classes were total fluff and what I refer to as "refund classes". Some of us in my cohort still joke about them!
The best classes by far were those taught from active professionals in the industry, where we worked on real exercises, and not those cooked-up case studies from Ivey, Harvard and Darden. Thankfully there were enough of them to make it worthwhile. It was a nice journey and I learned a lot, but yeah I wouldn't spend $250K at some overrated business school.

If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?

Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
About ten years into my career as a hardware/embedded software/systems developer I decided it would be good to understand what managers were supposed to know and got one of these MBA thingies through the UK Open Business School. The knowledge gained was useful and directly applicable to non-technical areas of projects that I was involved in.
When I received notification that I had gained the degree I went home and proudly announced that I had been awarded a MBA to which my eldest daughter (16 at the time) asked, "What does that stand for? Miserable Bloody A***hole?"
