What wasn't clear was which respondents actually held an MBA and whether there was a difference in their answers with those who didn't. A 'before and after' MBA survey would have been particularly revealing.
That aside, the bottom line is, whilst MBAs have established themselves as crucial to certain careers, they aren’t seen as essential to entrepreneurial success.
