MBA- The Quill of Education; Globally


Today's organization’s talent is its primary source of competitive advantage. Talent acquisition makes an organization's strategy stronger. The current global economic situation has increased overall job seekers in the employment market worldwide, but there is still a notable talent shortage in different sectors and different countries, which leads to increased demand for "Talent Search". The present global scenario is facing lots of ups and downs. Corporate clients require a person with multitasking skills. The best talent is critical to achieving the best results. Therefore, everyone today is required to acquire basic managerial skills and knowledge (Rebecca L. Ray, 2012) to become competent in a competitive world. So, today, Master Business Administration has become the need of the hour. Being an MBA would further strengthen the qualities of an individual to stand together with the nation.


Education is a channel or a process to develop the potentialities of an individual and enable him or her to grow into a responsible citizen. Education guides human beings to meet the challenges of life with courage and diplomatic skills. In specific, a career-sloping education will make the individual take up a career according to his or her aptitude, ability, and competence. The Master of Business Administration, one of the professional educations, is the best-known management qualification throughout the world. It can accelerate an individual career, prepare him/her for promotion, and help him/her to have a complete career change.


Management Practice has become "Sine-qua-non" in the present-day Global business scenario. Today’s business requires a person with management skills who is result-oriented within the shortest span of time. MBAs with skills such as leadership, communication, group dynamism, versatile knowledge, and multitasking skills can lead any global business.

The complexity of business and demanding top- and bottom-line results require a full-time MBA to steer business houses towards a desired target. With the globalization of today’s education, student exchange, and faculty exchange programs, professional education is becoming more challenging and complex. Especially professional courses like MBA are aimed at preparing dynamic and challenging managers who can work in any part of the globe and lead corporations more effectively.

To be a good and successful manager, one must have decision-making, financial analysis, and interpersonal relationship abilities. He must also be able to utilize those skills in the face of limits, opportunities, and alternatives. Professional management programs are built on the notion that people can learn to better handle all types of business situations. MBA programs not only assist students build abilities that many companies value, but they also provide a theoretical background for solving many business challenges.

Personality transformation through MBA:

A Management education does make a difference to your personality and career prospects. Extensive Training: In today's economy, many companies recognize the benefits of hiring someone with an MBA. It demonstrates that the employee has undergone extensive training that will be immediately applicable in the business world, resulting in less time spent on training and supervision. An MBA can provide a number of personal benefits as well. An MBA may offer the student a number of advantages, one of which is personality development.

Developing a vibrant personality requires, besides outward attractiveness, an even more important quality called INNER CHARISMA. A charm that comes from within. This INNER CHARM is the talent that shines through training and technique.

The Magical E’s that transform your personality through MBA:

Experience: Experience is invaluable. No amount of money can buy a valuable experience. Stop for a while and think. It is for making us study and understand these experiences (case studies) that the world-famous Business Schools are slogging day in and day out. Experiences are lessons that life offers us free of charge. Experience, be it bitter or sour, should not bog us down. On the contrary, we should feel gratified for having tasted it. Are we not in a position to caution others? Guide others? So let a negative experience make us wiser.

Exposure: Expose yourself to the greater possibilities of life. When opportunity knocks at your door, embrace it! Do not get into the shell as a snail does in response to external stimulus. Constant exposure to new ideas and intellectuals will keep you energized. If you do not feed your mind with new concepts and theories, it will become famished and emaciated. So nourish your mind with new ideas.

Education: Education is a never-ending process. Learning never ends. You can only keep adding to it. Learning new things and technologies and keeping yourself updated will enrich your personality. There’s one secret about learning. Share it with others. Constant learning keeps you young forever. You will see yourself growing younger.

Environment: Your environment is your surroundings. It is the lifestyle you adopted as your own. As a child, you were influenced by your environment. As an adult, you can create it and control it according to your requirements. Now it is irreversibly proven that you can either create or destroy your own happiness. I think this needs no further explanationDo not overlook the importance of these four magical E’s. Don't let them control you. You can orchestrate the environment around you so as to generate happiness. Select your experience. Seek the right exposure. Let education be an eternal learning and energizing process. 

During the course of MBA an individual can develop his/her personality according to the present market demand Like:

Integrating skill: It is all about working on different areas and managing the correlation between functions and verticals.

People managements: In order to work in a team and create a powerful solution, one needs to develop interpersonal sensitivity. Handling people and group dynamics in today’s competitive world is considered to be one of the most important challenges.

Street smartness: Apart from the technical knowledge of management, MBA gives you many chances and situations where every individual has to perform and show the ability to think differently and "just get the work done," which in MBA jargon is called street smarts.


In the existing competitive, holistic, and dynamic environment, everyone needs to develop a deep-rooted confidence in their abilities. The feeling that, come what may, I am ready to face the challenge and face it boldly comes uniquely with this career option. It might sound biased, but the fact is that there are lots of MBAs with something different in them as far as confidence is concerned.

Set Your Career in Fast Track with an MBA Degree:
