MBA

I often hear that an MBA, like other degrees, might not necessarily teach you anything, but it at least acts as a filter that’s useful in hiring.

Here are the qualities that someone must have to seek an MBA:

  • Dedicated to their own personal advancement
  • Buys into fashionable ideas
  • Big spender
  • Chooses academics over real-world experience

And if you believe the account of [a friend who got an MBA], the egos are capacious.

A former professor of mine said, “If a graduate student says something incorrect, you say, ‘You’re wrong.’ If an MBA student says something incorrect, you say, ‘You’re right because …’ and then proceed to tell him why he’s wrong.”

To what employer are these qualities attractive?
