How to tackle the "Why MBA after engineering" question in PIs?

It has been seen umpteen number of times that often one's chances of getting hired or not hinge on the level of clarity a candidate has with regards to this eons-old question. While the answers sure will be a bit different for different engineering backgrounds, it'll be great if someone can identify the common points worth mentioning. Engineering branch specific answers to this question will be appreciated even more.

I did Mechanical Engineering because I loved Physics. Post Engineering I landed a job at a major MNC in the manufacturing side. While I was happy with my job very quickly I found out that the growth curve for Engineers from Tier-2 colleges ( Like Mine ) vs IITs/Top B-schools was very flat, and the only way I could scale the gap was with an MBA , eventually even in manufacturing the top leaders are dealing with strategic decisions and people management, they are doing what MBAs are taught to do, so I felt it would be relevant for me to pursue an MBA
