Doing a full time MBA is a lot like going to a college. Except that following up the B-School, you realize that you’re older, you’re less insecure, you’ve got actual money to spend, you know how to hold your liquor(hopefully) and after the first semester or so, you know that grades don’t really matter and yes, the experience does!
For those of you who’re done with their two years, finally had some sleep and used everything they’ve learnt to find that dream job(or package), a big hats off to these ‘people of some other planet’. As for those ‘martyrs’, here are a few things you need to be prepared with to win the battle within the MBA program.
1. SKILLS AND EXPECTATIONS:
2. WORK EXPERIENCE OR LOAD?
Most MBA programs encourage and require students to do summer internships and work placements in reputed companies. They are taught in a way that they are able to discuss, explore and solve real life business problems mostly through case studies. Unfortunately, long gone are the days when perusing Facebook and playing angry birds on your phone was a class routine! The MBA modules these days are in depth and fast paced. Rarely would we see MBA students casually lounging in front of the TV- there’s course work to be done.
3. DEFINE YOUR GOAL:
The program of MBA offers a vast number of opportunities in terms of employment. It is a good option for those who wish to run their own business or work at high managerial position in large organizations especially. But, it is important to choose your goals and clearly define them before joining the program, because MBA may just not always help you in finding what you want to do, your passion and purpose in life and how you can bring about a change in the world.
4. COMMUNICATION IS THE KEY!
5. DON’T COUNT ENTIRELY ON THE FIRST JOB:
