Supply and Demand
Currently I am enrolled in the MBA program at Temple and this semester taking the graduate level economics course. This is all good, and professor seems to love the topic, which makes for a fun course.
However, for those thinking about doing your MBA, do it now don't put it off. I have had previous opportunities to go for my MBA before I had kids, and when I had employers that would cover a much bigger portion of the bill. Big mistake it only gets harder and I think you have less time to get the other benefits of networking and socializing that you might get if you can spend more time getting involved.
Also my guess is that if you mapped the value of an MBA relative to age, so your Y is value of MBA vs X being your age, value is much higher the younger you are maybe mid 20's? While this might be true and the value I receive might be diminished, it keeps me learning and that is worth it.
