Some individuals have the thought that having a MBA degree is the tool to have a sudden rise in career.
Unfortunately, it is not so. MBA, as it is generally perceived is not meant for all. It is only suitable for individuals, students that have a bend for leadership, administrative and management positions. Most of the students that pursue MBA do not have good understanding of the program, efforts, and expectation and job opportunities. Like any other degree program, the results, opportunities are not the same for all.
MBA if pursued from a recognized institution with high scores, industry experience, and internship can lead to one of the best employment opportunities; pave the path for a successful corporate career. Individuals that pursue MBA from the top management institutes such as IIMs, FMS, XLRI to name a few, are the fortunate ones to have training, coaching to be thought leaders, decision makers for organizations, corporations.
To pursue MBA from any of the elite management institutes is a discipline. It is not only classroom lectures; every activity that students undertake around the campus is part of the program for grooming, confidence building, communication, analytical knowledge and other areas of development. The classroom lectures, dramatics, extempore, presentations and many other activities that students are engaged in to builds attributes such as team work, leadership all of which are needed for real work situations.
How about students passing out from tier 2 or other unrecognised MBA institutes? What are the career prospects for such individuals? It can be a bright future for them as well. Students from such institutes, if they have a bend for management, and if this is combined with a combination of classroom lectures and industry experience, intern ship can have good career prospects as well. But it is important, that the theory is relevant to the needs of the corporate environment and is revised from time to time. Any curriculum that is not revised to keep the needs of the industry is not much of practical importance.
For some individuals, a student to obtain a MBA degree is only a way to get in to a management career. For such individuals it is only a formality, they have the aptitude for management positions and the real grooming, training happens on the job. The situations, scenarios in a real work environment which may be related to resource, delivery, inventory, quality or any other aspect is what business managers, leaders are expected to handle.
