What would you do with that degree? What are your career goals?

Keep in mind that's not a MBA, and probably won't carry nearly the same amount of weight as a real MBA from an accredited college. There are several universities that offer real MBA with entertainment minors or dual major programs, USC and NYU are the few that I know of. Plus, once you have an MBA, no matter what field you get into, you are going to be learning 90% on the job.

Yea I wouldn't suggest this program at all. I had a few friends who went through it and hated it. Plus you have to realize it is mostly focused towards music. And is also like Business 101.

MBA is kinda overkill for programming, but here's the best MBA in the biz as far what they've put out for student projects. They are the guildhall at SMU.

Hope this helps.

edit: I go to Full Sail and the MBA in Entertainment Business is definitely not going to significantly help you get a better game programming job.

Although it isn't neccessary, it isn't overkill for producing
