Programmers do not need MBAs. I don't know anyone who has an MBA and is a programmer. They're really apples and oranges.
I am a big proponent of developers getting business skills, but an MBA is a waste of time and money for programming jobs.

I don't know your base. But in US if your profile come up in during the HR screening process, you will be deemed as disillusion. MBA counterpart is MS which deals with managerial issues more than coding issues which handle by programmers. As Mark said don't waste your money.
