My alma mater (a nationally reputable public research institution) offers a 1 year (2 semester) M.S. in Industrial Engineering with an emphasis on Systems Engineering and Analytics. My B.S. is also in IE, and I have worked as an IE in manufacturing for a defense contractor for the last 1.5 years following graduation. In a vacuum, I'm not 100% sure it's something I would want to study, but 1 year for an M.S. seems too good to pass up. It could also boost my GPA from a 3.3 to a high end of 3.45. Additionally, I am fortunate enough where funds are sufficient. Would obtaining this M.S. improve my stock as an M.B.A. candidate for a top 10 M.B.A. program, or would it be trivial compared to work experience, GMAT, GPA, etc?
