In the 1960s MBA was considered as a new degree and was not very popular…and it was just finding its feet. However it very quickly established itself and became popular. And like all popular things people started copying! The IIM was the place where you could do your MBA – but then clones started appearing all over the place. Things came to such a pass that every college, university, business house set up an MBA institute.
Is doing MBA a good option? I think the answer is yes.
Two things have to happen. You should go to a college which has good faculty, and attracts good students. So if you are good enough to get into an IIM A who is to even question “should you go and do your MBA?”. The answer is obvious, is it not? For the not so good / great student the decision is far more difficult to make. Should an ordinary student get into a “d” grade MBA? Again the answer seems to be yes. No, not because they will learn too many things, but because it is almost impossible to get any job with just one basic degree. At least the college allows you to meet potential employers like banks, life insurance companies, fmcg, …these companies would not even have known that you existed. So there are 2 uses of an MBA degree:
– you meet good quality students (many superior to you)
– you meet good professors who have been teaching there for years on end
– you meet corporate India – who are at your campus with the simple task of recruiting.
So go to a good MBA college – the best that your marks will take you (or what your dad can afford?)
Learn, study, unlearn, re learn…and keep the process on. Learn to organise events, be on committees for various things….and ENJOY!!!!!
