Why do an MBA? What is an MBA worth?
Building the foundation for the future
The majority of managers start off as specialists and get promoted into a position that requires them to manage people and contribute to the organisation’s goals and objectives. There is often an expectation that, somewhere along the line, they will have acquired enough business knowledge to function effectively in that role.
At best they will know about their own department; but it’s unlikely they’ll have an overall understanding of the whole structure and processes that underpin any successful organisation. At worst, they’ll have no idea what the deliverables of a manager are and simply muddle through – not managing the outcomes or the people well.
When you combine an MBA with hands on business experience you have a combination that has significant value – and that value is reflected in your salary.
