Include “MBA” After Your Name?

Allan writes:
I read an article in Business Week that said that one should
never include the letters MBA after one’s name if one has an MBA degree.
That is the first that I have heard that dictum. Please provide your feedback.
And yes I have an MBA degree.


The Career Doctor responds:
I would have to agree. I have seen people use the MBA label after their
names and I just think it sends the wrong message. Instead of saying
something of the quality of the person’s education I think it conveys a
message of pretentiousness.
Don’t get me wrong. The MBA is a great degree and a great tool for moving
forward in a business career but other than that there is no real status
attached to it such as to doctoral degrees including the J.D. M.D. or Ph.D.
