Why MBA/PGDBM are important in Corporate world?

MBA/PGDBM are the most important courses which one should undergo, if you are in corporate world and planning to continue with the same. I am one of those who wanted to stick to my core profession i.e. software development but alas no longer. What i felt when i started my career some years back is something which i don't see eye to eye with my present perspective. My perspective changed to a large extent. In this industry there is no place for hard working professionals (commonly referred as a resource) as mostly the people who are judging them are prejudiced. They are influenced by their managerial skills, which turns them into an egotist and work seekers. And this is prevalent right from low level Management to the top brass of any organization. Interestingly they will never let you feel what they have in their cold-blooded hearts. They will try to apply their managerial skills , which includes motivating, exclusionary goals, team work and many more to lure you. Don't let yourself feel that i am against this. That is their job and they are doing it efficiently and with diligence. Now the question is that how early we will understand this enigma, early we do, more beneficial it will be for us.
However just pursuing MBA from any college may not suffice. As this is your last formal education so it should be one of the best and remarkable for lifetime. Moreover getting into A, A+ or A++ B School is in itself tiresome and cumbersome. You need lot of benedictions, blessing and last but not the least is consistent hard work with positive outlook and confidence. You need to be focused if you want to crack CAT, XAT, GMAT, FMS, IIFT, JMET and other similar ones. Let me make very clear that CAT is not a cakewalk. It is the toughest of all the exams available. Even GMAT is easy compared to CAT. A little more of my analysis leads to the conclusion that it is toughest to extract the better of the best as this best constitutes a huge crowd especially in India. Everyone want to be in IIM especially ABC. But folks if you really want to, then buck up, be consistent in your performance, focused and hit the bulls eye. No one can help you other that the person whom you see early morning in the mirror while brushing your teeth. Till now no one was so nice to you to give answers of the questions asked in the examinations. Don't you feel IIM people are nice to you. Actually, they are judging your decision making skills. You have to choose one out or 4/5 answer options. But most of us try to find the 6th answer. But why? Because we are habitual of finding the answer. What rubbish. Guys we are here to choose the right answer and not to find the 6th one. Please understand. While approaching the questions think differently because leaders think differently and do differently.
Rest you don't need blessings, you need to work hard and that you will do only when you face an arrogant and irksome manager. So your inspiration is that want to be your manager's manager. As you don't like your manager's skills so work hard and show him, how to be a good manager. The movement you feel distracted from your goal remember your managers face, grinning on your failure. This is the mantra of your success and an easy, fast and reliable method of climbing the corporate ladder and reaching the acme of your career. Good luck and benedictions.


  1. That was really a cool one. Keep blogging.


  2. I do not agree with your views that one cannot do well with their core competencies. Moreover I do not agree that MBA could be the last degree you can have. You can have as many as Masters degree you want.
