Most of my friends who've recently graduated from business schools and some of them from engineering universities are going for an MBA to "boost their careers". But is an MBA really worth it ?
Well the answer to the above question is not as simple as yes or no. It depends from person to person. Only an individual himself can decide whether an MBA is necessary for him or not. The unfortunate things these days is people have starting jumping onto careers as if it were some sort of train. Anyone on the faster train would reach his goal first. But this is not true ! If somebody else with an MBA degree is successful in his/her career doesn't mean that it'll work for you too. Every person is different and we should learn to accept our individuality. A good cook might not necessarily be a good painter. Similarly an MBA might not be as important for you as it is for someone else.
An MBA is a degree which can be beneficial not just for business graduates but also for engineers,doctors,accountants or anyone in a managerial position. But it is you who can judge best whether an MBA is worth your time, effort and money !
