Re: Which is better- Doing MBA as fresher Or with Work Experience - August 7th, 2008

Hi,

I am Pankaj Chhibber completing my MBA in Dual Specialisation (Mktg and Systems) from IMT Ghaziabad.

I am Ex-indian Air Force Personnel with about 6 Yrs experience in civil Industry.

In my opinion one should have experience of minimum 2 yrs prior to undertaking any MBA Course. Exposure to industry makes it easier to understand the concepts thoruoghly.

On the contrary, a fresher without any exposure to Industry Culture would not gain much during course period. Yes, He/She can mug-up theories through efforts and clear the exam.

My Suggestion : Go get experience for minimum 2 Yrs in the field wherein you are planning to undertake MBA.

Have good day and bright future

My advice ....Get the MBA as soon as possible....


Just one warning..As a fresher ..assess your strengths ..aim high ....

..look at the results..If you achieve your target..Congrats!!!...

..If not..do another assesment ...ask yourself why???...

ask yourself whether you still believe that you have it in you to achieve that original target or if you need to revise that....

..it is at this time that you might go in for some work experience....

..and take another shot at the original/revised target...

Sorry if that sounds confusing...!!!

Regards

work ex definitely. The quality of discussion and interaction is automatically raised in a class when ppl can relate the theoretical knowledge to the practical world.

Its only in india (i'm guessing) that one is allowed to persue an MBA without work ex. mostly it is mandatory in other countries barring exceptional academic excellence.
We tend to think MBA as a must-have degree and aim to get it pronto but it is really more of a means to give you a new direction or give your career that extra boost.

Hi, i am an MBA graduate, i did MBA after working for an year.

What i feel is their should be mandatory rule that people should have worked at least for 3 years before joining MBA, and people who teaches also should have an industry exposure for min of 7 years.

I feel it comes down to the basic nature of a person. if he is a kind of person who aspires for knowledge all the while he can do well anytime whether fresher or with work-ex. but if he is not of that kind no point if u hav a work-ex or fresher.

Nothing harm if a fresher comes but its always better having hands-on work experience before doing MBA .. Some concepts can be easily understood.. At times, even a fresher can come up with new ideas and thoughts whenever a discussion arises.. So generally MBA institutes (esp foreign) wish to have a class of diversified profiles..
