Top Ten Reasons Why People Pursue MBA

     GMAT, CAT, XAT and what not, being the core mantra for many, these days and what is it, that drives them to take all/many of these and become an MBA graduate? Well there are quite a lot of reasons why people choose to pursue MBA, here are my pick of ten reasons that top the chart in no particular order, unless stated explicitly.

  • My Uncle in US/Dad/Mom/Brother/Sister/Dad's best friend/My Brother's fiancée suggested it was the best career choice as on date.
  • For my course and score in under graduation I don't think I have good work prospects, so let me do an MBA to recoup for the loss.
  • I've felt my aptitude and vocabulary being competitive and I want to crack this as a challenge.
  • My Aunt's son or daughter/Friends/College Senior/Best friend from school/Girlfriend or Boyfriend  is doing it.
  • A thing of beauty is always an HR lady, I sure wanna work in an ambiance with such people around me, doing my MBA in HR henceforth.
  • I had all the experience, ideas, potential to be a perfect fit, for this job but they rejected me as I was not "qualified enough".
  • My company offered an all expense sponsored e-MBA course at a premium institute and I took it gleefully with both hands.
  • I have no clue why I took this and still trying to figure that out.
  • With my under-graduation in Engineering and my "skill set" I was worthy of just a Rs 3L p.a job, but then with a little effort I landed into this MBA and my remuneration gets to start anywhere from Rs 6L p.a after I am done with this. It is way better than what I would earn with a Bachelor of Engineering and experience of 2 years. To me MBA is Money Best Assured.
  • Lastly I hope at least a handful would say "I have aspired to become an entrepreneur in my field of interest some day and this is  a firm step towards it".
