With MBA, You become better Managers
Although nothing can substitute real life experience acquired through years of being in a particular industry and meeting new people, an MBA degree does equip you with the necessary skills to turn you into good managers. Essentially a management degree, covering all aspects of business management, the MBA curriculum is designed to provide students the best platform to hone their managerial skills.
A business manager is basically a person responsible for controlling or administering an organization or group or staff. The person is expected to manage the resources (as they are scant), deal with budgetary allocations, solve operating issues and motivate the staff to align them to the goals of the company. To this end, an MBA comes in handy. It introduces aspirants to the various areas of business such as Production, Marketing, Sales, Finance, Human Resource and other aspects such as brand building, logistics, storage, to name a few. Not only this, it also provides a holistic overview to students, keeping international trends in perspective. A student, thus, gets familiar with and trained in the nitty-gritty of the business world.
The role of a manager is directly concerned with day-to-day operations of the firm as opposed to, say the CEO or Vice President, who focus on strategy, overall coordination and larger issues. The manager, in fact, acts as crucial link between the vision of the senior management and its implementation on ground to drive the business. MBA plays a crucial role in preparing people for the job. The curriculum includes a whole gamut of activities that groom their overall personalities, making them fit for the job. Seminars, case studies, field trips, projects, talks by eminent personalities, festivals all form an integral part of the course and enable students to learn the traits of a good manager by giving them a first- hand experience of the same.
MBA does not necessarily create leaders. This is because, besides the course, a leader is influenced by a lot of external factors and also exerts influence on his/ her environment. But managers, who, in a lot of senses, are potential leaders, are created by MBA. A person, who enrols in an MBA course, does so to equip himself/ herself with the relevant tools to manage a business, understand how business works, keep himself/ herself up to date with international practices, learn about the workings of successful business companies.
The overall experience and perspective provided by an MBA Programme helps make better managers. Though nothing can replace real, on the job learning, an MBA does prepare you to be ready and anticipate most challenges that you are likely to face in your jobs.
