There has been phenomenal response to the article: Should I do MS or MBA after B.tech or B.S , I see lot of questions asked by people explaining their situation and asking if MBA is right for them. Let me share few of my thoughts here to help you decide better about MBA. I assume you have read the original article before you proceed further.
The best way to solve an issue in general is to do analysis. The best way to do rational analysis is to ask the right questions. Let me try to give a set of questions that you have to ask yourself that you may answer either YES or NO.
Sample questionnaire to help you decide if MBA in US is right for you :
Some questions may seem redundant, just for lack of proper verbiage I had to write them like that. If you answer YES to at least half of these questions (at least 6), then you should definitely consider doing MBA in USA or at least MBA in your home country.
|Question||Answer (YES or NO)|
|1||Do you want to become an Entrepreneur someday and have your own business?|
|2||Do you want to be a good Manager for a team?|
|3||Do you want to get into Executive roles like Vice President roles or CEO, CFO roles some day in your career ?|
|4||Do you like to work with people ?|
|5||Do you want to move away from your Technical job like it can be coding or engineering ?|
|6||Do you want to understand how businesses work as a whole ?|
|7||Do you want to change your career to leadership roles ?|
|8||If manager, do you want to be a better Manager at work ?|
|9||Do you like innovation and want to create a business using your own innovative ideas ?|
|10||Do you have work experience of 3 years or more and planning on moving up the ladder in company ?|
|11||Do you like Management, but you are not good with managing people in general ?|
|12||Do you have MS from US and you do not like your current job and plan to do something different in Business side ?|
|13||Are you good working with people, but are in a job where you do not work with people like coding, engineering, etc and you want to change your career ?|
I understand studying MBA could be a hard decision to make. If you still have any questions, ask in Forum or post a comment, I will respond.
