On the OneWire resources page, the article "How to Persuade your employer to fund your MBA" describes how. What do you think?

My employer will reimburse me for my MBA within an annual spending limit and min grades. They also will cover undergrads, cfp, cfa and some other designations

Exactly. Tuition reimbursement programs USED TO BE a mainstay of better jobs.
They still exist but not as broadly and aren't nearly as generous as they once were.

ABCDs of tuition reimbursement

Very true. Back in the late 90's, I was in pharma sales and went back to a very well known national university for an MBA. We had a tuition reimbursement plan that paid 100% (it was about $80K) and some people in mgmt raised a stink because they didn't think I needed to be attending an $80K MBA program. But at the time, there was nothing saying I couldn't.
Soon after, they changed the amount they would reimburse but I still got mine paid for 100%.

I also know many MBAs, including alumni from top 10 b-schools. The majority paid for it themselves and student loans were the norm. If you can get your company to pay for it, that's great.

For reference:

B-schools with an average indebtedness of over $70k on graduation include HBS, Sloan, Kellogg, Stern & Stanford.

Yes, my husband works for Microsoft and he's gotten approval to get a company-sponsored MBA from particular programs with particular emphasis on what he's doing professionally.

Boeing also has similar programs, more likely related to engineering, but if a need is demonstrated they will also pay for any level of education provided you remain with the company for so many years past program completion.
