In determining which school which school to attend or which career to follow, it is very important to to get to know yourself better to determine which career area most closely meets the application of your personality traits and then get to know people who are doing what you think that you might want to do, so that you can see what they do, how they got there, and what suggestions and advice that they have for you.
Getting to know yourself and how your personality traits relate to people involved in various career opportunities is very important in your decision making process. During my many years in Human Resources and College Recruiting, I ran across too many students who had skipped this very important step and ended up in a job situation which for which they were not well suited.

I attended a business school, specifically Bentley University, and I found it to be very beneficial in my career.

This was an experience that I was able to discuss in interviews.
Great question! Short answer is - it really depends what you want...
If you're in an existing career and want to stay doing what you're doing - there may not be a need to go to business school.
If you're looking to change your career or specialize in a certain business function (i.e. marketing, etc.) there are programs that add value to your candidacy for those jobs/roles.
