An MBA promises to catapult one’s career to a higher level. Therefore several experienced and fresh graduates prefer to take up a post graduate degree in Management.
An MBA degree has several advantages.
It provides an efficient combination of theoretical or academic knowledge and application based learning with core disciplines like General Management,
Marketing, Finance, Human Resources and Operations Supply Chain Management, MIS and Quantitative Techniques or Decision Sciences. Frameworks like SWOT (Strengths, Weaknesses Opportunities and Threat), PESTLE (Political, Economic, Social, Technical, Legal and Environmental) and SMART (specific, achievable, measurable reasonable and time bound) are introduced in an MBA class.
The capacity to withstand pressure, the ability to adhere to deadlines, the skills to gel with all team members, the confidence to lead teams, the power to network coupled with a strong sense of accountability and discipline is what an MBA gives you, provided you undergo your training in a world class institution like the Vijay Patil School of Management.
