re: Do engineers need an MBA?

For engineers transitioning into management, some only need the basics of business practices to succeed. Knowledge and good communication skills are much more important than a lot of business theory. If an engineer wants to start a company, then they need to partner with someone with a good business background. I would only consider an MBA if there were specific business opportunities that rewarded the effort. From what I have seen, an engineer with an MBA is not that valuable unless they the solid engineering background and the skills I discussed earlier. Just my opinion.

Most people with MBAs need more engineering experience in my opinion.

I agree with the sentiment that if your employer is willing to pay for it, then it would be worthwhile. That's assuming your main career objective is to climb the management ladder. Otherwise I would skip it.
