Is it better to earn an MBA at a 2nd or 3rd tier b-school in the U.S. or a top 5 b-school at a developing country? Especially if the student is planning on eventually returning to the U.S., will that MBA be accepted in the U.S. in terms of a job offer, considering it’s globally accredited?

The school is one of top 5 schools in a developing Asian country that offers an intensive global MBA program. The student is able to study abroad for a few weeks in the States and then for a couple of weeks in Singapore. If one plans on returning to the States, would this degree transfer in the U.S. job market? If not right away, eventually in the near future?
I don’t think I’d be able to get into a top U.S. MBA program, and mediocre b-school degree has its limitations, like everything else.
A lot of people come to the states to earn an MBA, but what would be a good reason to study at a different country?
I don’t have a good answer to give people when they ask, why would you go there to get an MBA as an American when people are trying to get an MBA from the states?
