by Caroline Clement

Apply for your MBA!

We'll cover the top reasons why Indian students should get their MBA. These top reasons were found in through QS Applicant Research, an online survey of more than 4,000 international applicants to graduate programs all over the world. The statistics of a number of Indian students and their motivations to achieve MBA status are shown in the chart in the appendices. We have used their scores to show you, the reasons Indian students are choosing an MBA.

1. Improve Career Prospects

Attaining an MBA allows you to learn how to successfully manage, lead, organize and adapt in a variety of business environments. The skills learned through an MBA program prepare you with practical skills as well as theoretical knowledge that you can further your business aspirations with. When you first graduate from an under-graduate program, it is often hard to get your foot in the door right away. More and more top businesses regard the MBA as a measure of a prospective employee's capabilities on a management level.

2. Ability to Learn New Skills

MBA students gain an education that prepares them for their future. Skills attained from an MBA are priceless to your development and can accelerate your success in a business management atmosphere. Soft skills are transferable to many jobs, an MBA is known to increase the some of the following characteristics:

  • Communication
  • Leadership
  • Analytical Thinking
  • Problem Solving
  • Interpersonal
  • Teamwork
  • Networking

3. To Build a Professional Network

Many students like you will come out after your undergraduate education, most likely with a focus in business. But how can you clarify that you have enough experience to manage people and a business? Not only that but how will you find your dream job after coming out of it all? The MBA expands your skills from an undergraduate level and teaches you skills in which you can employ through management in a real career.

The other thing you need to develop is a professional network. Jobs don't just come to you, you have to know the right people who will be able to find you that great job. Doing an MBA helps you connect with professionals in your field of interest. You will also meet other prospective graduates who are pursuing great careers. Professors are a great resource to tap into at the Masters level. The more people you know and interact with, the more that will be able to connect with you in situations and they may even be a crucial piece of how you get the job of your dreams. The figure for how many people get jobs purely based on who they know continue to rise, so why not get your MBA and start making those networking connections that can help you in the future.

4. To Enable Career Change
Are you stuck in a rut? Don't feel like you're really going anywhere with the job you have, or the quality of your career? Getting an MBA is the best way to refresh your mind and to get started on something that you are very passionate about. An MBA is just another addition to the work experience you may already have in your field. An MBA gives you an academic edge that after so many years, your current job might not be able to teach you. Plus, an MBA opens doors when you try to apply to new jobs. Having this on your resume shows that you are hardworking enough to persevere to go back to school and learn more. This sort of dedication and effort is a characteristic any employer would love to have in their employee or person of higher, executive management.

5. To Increase Your Salary

The more educational experience you have, and the more you've invested in your education, the more you can expect in your pay cheque. With more skills under your belt, so too will come responsibility in the workforce. Jobs you'll be qualified for will increase, as will your rate of pay. Getting an MBA is a gateway to securing a great job that will grant you a salary you can be comfortable with.

Some Indian students want to pursue more than just getting a great job, they want to create their own job. An MBA allows them to learn skills to be their own boss. An MBA gives you the ability to lead others in a way that increases productivity and grows a company. As well, in the process of getting an MBA, you'll have a great chance to interact with other entrepreneurs, exchange ideas and possibly create joint ventures or new opportunities. Plus, having a Masters in something shows that you've gone through the education and are now putting it to use by creating something out of the management skills you've learned.

Indian students have the ability to take their strength and motivations in business and applying it to the next level by getting a Master's in Business Administration. With intelligence, effort, a focused mind and a great MBA school, you're really able to move mountains in the business world.

    I agree with the value of an international MBA. But think before you pay that huge tuition. I did an MBA from an IVY league school paying a huge pile of money from my pocket.. But after finishing I realized that it is a sunk cost. Due to H1B issues here in the US (lottery, one year waiting etc), no company is able to give me a job. Now I have to go back to my country. BTW I have a PhD (in life sciences) as well, from a premier institute. But still out of luck due to reasons beyond my control.

    I am not sure how I will pay back my loan from my country.

    Bottom-line, if you need a good MBA try Europe or India or some other country. It is much easier to start work/get hired once you finish MBA

    I found the motivators you mentioned particularly interesting. I wonder how many MBA programs worldwide offer international business etiquette (international protocol) as a subject…..
