    (Anyone who says MBA will be blocked and mocked mercilessly.)

I know the son of my parents friends always was kind of a loser (according to what I was told anyway). Never finished university, always borrowing money from parents and gasp smoked weed. He created a company at some point, that was basically living off government subsidies, but it worked okay until the government funds dried out and their employees were caught doing shady shit to make more money.

So he got an MBA at an expensive university in Toronto. And now he moved to LA and has an awesome 6 figure job at a tech company.

This is the only MBA related story I know, told through my judgemental parents lens. I mean, I know the guy and met him multiple times. He's really nice :) But this whole story has put some doubts in my mind about what an MBA is actually for.
