I recived my degree in psychology 4 years ago, rather than pursuing my masters or getting work experience directly related to psycholgy i chose to get a job in sales. I have done well and managed to pay back all my college debt(loans, credit cards). Now i'm at a point where i am burnt out from sales and I want to utilze my degree.

Is an MBA worth getting? I've seen a lot of talk to the contrary lately, and most of the MBAs that I know don't seem to be doing work now that particularly requires an MBA, so I'm wondering if it's just a waste of time and money compared to just gaining more work experience? I was thinking of getting an MBA as a way to shift into less pure-IT related work, since I can't seem to get rehired as a developer after a long absence.
