Frankly an MBA would NOT help you in editorial jobs. Editorial jobs are purely technical and creative. There is actually no element of management involved directly. People management is definitely there, but that can be earned through experience. A full fledged MBA may be useful if you wish to become a niche area Editor may be for example of Finance, Law, Economics, etc.
An Editor needs to be the most aware person but not a master of the subject.
Please do get back to me in case you are still wanting to ask some thing or require any more clarification or guidance. I will be very glad to help you out and see you become successful in your career.
