Rajesh Setty has published a free e-book entitled When You Can’t Earn an MBA. . . Aside from the fact that you can’t use “an” in front of a word that starts in a consonant, the e-book is a worthwhile read.
Those of you that read this blog frequently have read a lot of my previous posts about MBAs and would encourage you to read this e-book if you’ve enjoyed (or violently disagreed) with any of my previous posts.

The 'M' in MBA is pronounced 'eam' and now that 'e' is a vowel, there is an 'an' before MBA. Make sense?
You can use "an" before a word commencing with a consonant if that letter has the phonetical sound of a vowel, which "m" in "MBA" does. So this is correct. Another example is "an hour" as opposed to "a house".
