Which is better- Doing MBA as fresher Or with Work Experience - January 11th, 2008

Hi friends

I am just about to finish my MBA prog. from ICFAI Hyderabad. Prior to MBA i worked with an organization for 1 year.

In all these days of MBA , i personally felt that MBA would add more value and would prove to be more helpful for those who have previously worked somewhere.A person with a relevant work ex , knows things like :- industry structure, code of conduct, accepted norms, current trends e.t.c , which a fresher lacks.
This trend is prevalent in all the foreign universities and few Indian colleges like ISB Hyderabad have put in practice.

On top of that a person with a work -ex would definitely add value to class room discussion by sharing his experience and would help in generating a positive thought process.Such people would be able to practically relate theories with industrial practices.

I feel that minimum 2 years of work ex should be made mandatory for all the management exams


WHATS UR TAKE ON THAT ???


keep rocking

Doing MBA after work-ex is more better,

I am doing MBA after 3 years of work experience in diff. sectors.
I appreciate you for starting an Interesting topic
in GMAT its compulsory to have 2 years work-ex

Now I can easily understand the basic of

Productions - Line of Balance etc.
Raw Materials , we can have complete knowledge of Production Management if we are at Production Level.

If we work at Capital Market
we came to Know about
Demand & Supply
Laws of Returns, Laws of Diminishing Marginal Utility
Pricing
Forecasting - also applicable in field of Marketing

If we work as sales manager / somewhere at selling

we came to know about
Our attitude of Talking with Customers , External People

How to maintain Good Relations Externally & Internally

What might be the difficulties ? What we face all difficulties?

We get solutions in our books by using diff. methords & Techniques of Managment.

It's also very imporatant in case of HR.
Human Value as assest, we came to Know how to access the results how to regard them how to appreciate them.

MBA - Master of Buisness Administration
which can be learnt only by Peforming Buisness Activites ,
i.e. to Produce & to Sell, to get our work done by others .

These are my views
Give your opinion too.

Thanks

hey raman

That was a well justified reply .Really appreciate the way u explained the relevance of work experience through different angle.

Even i complete agree with u. Prior to doing MBA, i was working on a sales front and never got a exposure of capital markets ,banking and financial institution. I really found it bit difficult to relate the theories with practical applications.

Though with my summer training in financial institution i was able to bridge that gap. But i strongly feel that work experience should be made mandatory .

hi...
i appreciate ur point but Being a fresher you can understand things more easily because we always find this problem with work ex ppal dat it is difficult for them to unlearn something and relearn.
I agree experience helps in visualizing business situation easily but even if fresher want he can relate to situation by field knowledge i.e corporate interaction

Hi guys,
As far as my opinion says it is always better that u should have work experience . if u have proper work experience than it'll help u during u r summers and final placement. A part form this u r understanding is always better than others understanding during the class our's.

So it is advisable that u should have some experience before joining MBA program.

Regards
Pankaj

what the hell does it matter?
when you will end up doing the same job in both the cases..
one would be having technical knowhow and management skills later
the later would gain managerial knowledge and implement them later...

Well it depends on what satisfies u most
  • Doing some thing , without even knowing the implication and relevance of the same

    or
  • Understanding the logic as to why certain things are to be done in certain way n then doing it to perfection

Well its ur take again




thanks and regards

Even I agree with having a prior work ex. It actually lays down a foundation for learning. During your job, you, ideally, come to know what you don't know. This helps you in learning the exact required things. This saves a lot of time plus you will be more focused on what you want.
