Continuing Education for MBAs

The Wall Street Journal this week highlighted continuing education programs at Northwestern and York universities for workers with MBA degrees. Designed for mid-career associates who earned MBA degrees before 1995, the so-called Renaissance program at Northwestern's Kellogg School of Management seeks to bring managers up to speed on advances in their field. The program at York's Schulich School of Business helps students update their business skills and gain more in-depth knowledge in a specific discipline.

Such programs beg the question: Should highly degreed individuals, such as those with MBAs, continue their education?
