I read a lot on here about people using an MBA or MSRED to make the jump from certain real estate roles (IS, leasing, appraisals, property management, etc.) to development, but not much about people getting an MBA/MSRED after already starting out in development.
For those who get entry level roles out of UG at an active developer and who wish to stay in development, what are the benefits of getting an MBA or MSRED? Would this help with career growth and prevent plateauing in middle management? Would it help if you wanted to eventually start your own shop, or is it better to save your money and get 3 years of experience instead of going back to school?
On a semi-related note, do top b-schools like seeing development analyst/associate experience?
