    You should first test out the waters with your undergrad degree. It may turn out that there is no need for you to get a Masters at all. I know several people with BBAs (or bachelor's in Econ) making 6 figures with no apparent ceiling to stop them from continuing to move up despite not having a Masters.

    However, out of the choices you laid forth, the MBA is certainly the most valuable. I would recommend 3 to 5 years of work experience and then go to a good MBA program. (there is a huge discrepancy between MBA programs so at that time you would need to research which would instantly eliminate many MBA programs). BTW, I would recommend a full time program. Not a professional one.
