What is MBA?

The MBA a Master degree of Business Administration, granted after one to two years of graduate-level university study. The curricula vary according to the program, but all expose students to the broad spectrum of business functions – finance, marketing, operations, IT, human resources and the like. In essence, your MBA degree is a certificate of general competency in all the major roles you’ll find in the modern corporation.

In job market, your MBA training will directly add value to your skills, experience and personal qualities. But more importantly, it will tie them together in one package that the market recognizes and responds to. Whether you consider an MBA a degree, a positioning, or a set of opportunities and costs, you need to ask yourself why it is right for you. In fact, every top business school will ask you this question, in one form or another, on the admissions application. They’ll ask you again during the interview. Finally, the companies that recruit on campus will probably ask you a third time. The answer seems obvious: money, opportunity, prestige.

But these one-word answers aren’t enough. Your reasons should be specific and tangible, and should function as the connecting arrows in a flowchart linking your past experience, the MBA, and your career objectives. Following are some of the most tried and tested responses.
