MBA – is it time?

Aaron Patzer, founder of Mint: “When valuing a startup, add $500k for every engineer, and subtract $250k for every MBA.”

Peter Thiel, paypal/facebook/etc, “Never ever hire an MBA; they will ruin your company.”

Ben Horowitz, entrepreneur and a VC, ” If you think that you know what you are doing without these experiences, you are likely delusional and would have been better off just drinking beer rather than getting an MBA and drinking beer.”

However, Ben did post up a great blog post – ‘ with everyone convinced that MBAs are useless, I wonder: Is now the time to hire MBAs?’
