Bangalore: Certain MBA myths have been controlling the thinking process of people for a long time now. People feel an MBA is the best option while the Job market is down. Business schools are seen to attract people who are bogged down by a crappy job market during an economic crisis.

A crisis situation does not mean that there aren't any good jobs available. Most people never believe that there could be good jobs during a crisis and do not apply for the same. They instead pursue an MBA as a Crisis Management Course. Their wrong notion is that an MBA will empower them with better management skills while they wait for the market crisis to subside, or become better equipped to deal a crisis.

A Professional who finds MBA appealing may find a good job. If he does not, then he pursues an MBA. However, a new study reveals that an MBA could make things worse for you if you do not get into one of the top 10 business schools. Here are 7 reasons why an MBA could take you backwards and spoil your job prospects.

An MBA does not make you a better business person

As against the common myth, an MBA does not make you better in business. A business man is supposed to know his weaknesses and should also be able to find people to fill holes. Therefore, an MBA will only make you spend a huge amount to learn that you are weak at something and also to know how to find people to do what you are not capable of doing. This could also be done without spending unnecessary money on MBA.
