Is business training and certification as well recognized and rewarded as technical training?

I have worked with software development for all my career, and I have progressed quite well by reading books, taking trainings and certifications as much as I could. These have been recognized and rewarded by all my employers so far, basically because they provide a practical way of ensuring I know a certain development technology well enough to pass the exams, therefore even if I do not master it, I can get up to speed on it fairly quickly.
In my current job I'm starting to make the transition into the business world, and frankly it seems to me that most of the expertise is quite subjective and not as easily assessable as in the technical "world".
So how does one become "good" as business, in a way that he/she can be easily evaluated and rewarded by employers? I'm thinking MBA here, but I don't want to be so shortsighted.
