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.

12: Your article has some merit, however I disagree that it would be useless.

I believe that an MBA should supplement one's existing qualifications and should only be sought after one has a couple of years experience under his belt and not immediately after graduation as seems to be the current trend in India.

In many countries one cannot do an MBA until he has a few years work experience.

13: I think it is a very realistic article, firmly grounded on the market scenario. Indeed MBA is a much abused word, people instantly see a sort of instant nirvana, which is not only fallacious but also dangerous. I did my MBA right after graduation and had no work ex. whatsoever. Today my firm belief is that any MBA should have a basic engineering degree.

I think from my knowledge i m hearing this MBA since the last 8 years in Indian companies and foreign companies are still fighting to survive some participate as mergers and others act as take overs one common goal how to survive i thought these bussiness schools did not give much in teachings. I think every company is releasing their dead assets and then surviving another day boy.So my common conclusion is one need not be an MBA even lower bussiness class knows that if he has to survive and continue his bussiness he might also have to sell his own property and stay in the bussiness till he bags abig contract
thanx

Agree. MBA should not be the basis of any desired job. One should pursue MBA only for the promotion desired. An MBA must be a technical graduate to be succeed in today's scenario.

16: It's not important what you pursue.. It's important how you much you are able to convert your information into knowledge and skill. Whether you do MBA or other course.. Student think that only degre is sufficient..But the knowledge is more important when you apply those you learned in every step of your career in a proper way... but most of the student failed to do that... That is the very much concerned matter.

17: Good realistic article. Statement "if you are not from the top ten, when you are not worth a penny", is a bit harsh , we have seen guys from top 30 get good jobs, at a good salary, though that canoot be compared with the compensation from the top bracket. Problem is Institutes lower down in the ranking. These institues does not havequality teachers. Grooming, development of communication skills is awful. The candidates passing out from these insitutes behave more like "babus", than decision makers.

18: Thanks SiliconIndia.
This article will definitely guide those youngsters who are just loitering around the MBA mania.
The youngsters must read out the article before making any foolish decision. They must not get carried away by the MBA hype and should watch out their likings, preferences, strength, weakness and of course their financial status. Even without this high profile qualification candidates can break into the top management team. My friend Sushil Chaturvedi,26, is just a B.Tech from NIT Durgapur but pockets in 11 Lacs a year and truly speaking he doesn't have any MBA.

20: Thanks SiliconIndia. You spoke my mind. Management comes in you either inherently or through experience in the job. You can learn to work with people, understand them and inspire them. These things can not be taught. MBA teaches you some basic things needed in the business, like, Account, finance, economics, planning and prioritization etc, but this is far from real world work scenarios.

21: I appreciate the post from Silicon India! This is a need of today's sick thinking about education a business And degree people can only do the jobs.

what if I dont have money to pursue my MBA or higher degrees. Am I not capable of doing things? Rubbish..
Posted by:Change it - 31 Aug, 2011
22: MBA is not everybody's cup of tea.
That degree is not worth for everybody.
The peron who takes degree should have the worth for that degree.
An MBA degree can only polish the skill set and ignite the creative thinking process.
It will not work on thoughtless people.
Don't blame the degree.
A top school degree may give a good salary package.
But,it does not mean that they are the great managers.
