Dear MBA Applicants,
When I speak with you, I at times get a feeling that you are trying to squeeze an MBA into your story without really knowing what will it do to you. Many of you are frustrated with your current jobs/bosses, some of you are simply looking for a change.
I wanted to write a narrative, and tell you more about “How to construct an MBA into the scheme of events of your life?” “How to really create a space for MBA in your lives?”
I will simply put it this way: Look at the following equation
Past + MBA = Short Term ( 5 Years) + Long Term( 6-15 years).
People do MBA’s in order to complement their previous skill sets. During professional experiences, people come across moments that inspire them to build an expertise. That expertise will enable them to fulfill their short-term ambition.
I will give an example: Someone working for supply chain in Maruti realizes after 3 years that Supply Chains are more complex than the simple procurement systems in these companies. He might feel like getting exposed to the plethora of parameters that make supply chain very optimized. He might even consider starting a career with Walmart, Dell, Nokia, Amazon( World’s most optimized supply chains). In order to get to this stage, this candidate should explore an MBA. That MBA will also make his very conversational in other functions that go into measuring the impact of those supply chains. He might want to get exposed to functions such as Finance, marketing, and General management. He might even need training on Leadership and Organizational behavior.
You need to have a thought process before you jump into an MBA program. It has to be your story. Your unique story. Once you have that, it is time to look for an MBA Program.
