An MBA degree has conventionally been considered a guaranteed and secure way of getting a decent job. It is one course that has been in demand irrespective of the market conditions. Particularly, the demand for MBA increased post liberalisation and globalisation. As businesses looked to move beyond borders, they required trained managers and executives to take charge, and MBA became a sought after course.
Change in market environment
The world has changed drastically, ever since the phenomenon of globalisation became widespread.

For instance, a person pursuing MBA in Human Resource should not only possess domain knowledge but also possess good inter-personal skills, communication skills, keep himself/ herself updated about the latest trends in the HR Departments across the world, and so on. A person who shows this awareness will have a better chance of influencing employers.

Some of the skills, other than subject knowledge, which a company looks for these days, are as follows:
