Get the PhD if at all possible.

There are too many unemployed, or under employed MBA credentialed people in the labor pool trying to scarf up jobs…

Does this help any?

You haven’t stated your career goals, but assuming you are interested in working in academics, then yes – a PhD is a must have in the long term.

If you are interested in working in the private sector I would strongly encourage you to begin establishing a career. You are coming into the market later in life, which has both its advantages and disadvantages. Talk to a career counselor to better understand how to make the most of those advantages. This does not mean you shouldn’t continue to pursue advanced degrees, just ensure that your approach to doing so doesn’t hurt your long term career goals.

Best of luck!

Just some empirics…
I get BA (in Economics) two years ago and will get MBA (International Economics) by the end of this year. I’m currently 32 (since few weeks ago) and seriously considering to continue for PhD from next year. Parallely getting BA in mathematics and statistics. So my decision is to continue.. In our country (one of EU) these steps done sequentially – we can’t jump from BA to PhD directly (I do education on correspondence basis – just exams – working in company at same time). Go further – it moves your way of thinking a level higher.

Good luck.. ;)
