Do you need an MBA to be a Product Manager?

Is it worth the time and financial investment?

I’ve seen many people suggest that an MBA is a key attribute for any serious product person to hold, and you can read stories of how an MBA will set you up to lead a product to success.

However, MBAs are expensive and really time consuming, which means you really need to commit to it if that’s something you want to pursue.

The question here though is whether you NEED to have an MBA to be a successful product manager?
