3 Reasons Why You Shouldn’t Do An MBA!

You DO NOT need an MBA! Don’t get fooled that an MBA is going to solve these problems for you – it is not!

1. You cannot do an MBA thinking it will make you into something you are not. You cannot expect 1-2 years to do what 20-odd years haven’t.
2. An MBA is not a “get rich quick” scheme – in fact, for the first few years, an MBA would not make *any* financial sense.
3. Getting an MBA is the answer but you need to know what the questions are. Without it, MBA can confuse you further rather than give clarity.

Round 1 vs Round 2 B-School Application – Which Is Better?

If you are wondering if you should send in your MBA application in R1 or R2, here is some food for thought:

1. All things being equal, R1 does give you an edge over R2 in terms of the probability.
2. If you get dinged in R1 then you have an option to apply in R2 so it becomes your plan B.
3. You hedge your risks by applying to as many schools as possible by applying to both R1 and R2.
So, in short – if you have taken the GMAT then it is better to have a strategy to apply in both the rounds.

There is a great Linkedin tool to help you figure out where the alumni from a particular B-school are working today. Here is an example of how to use it for ISB:
