Why do an MBA? And what’s it like?
I did an interview last year which I think answers many of the questions I receive via email . If there are other questions, please do comment and ask and I’ll be happy to answer them. I’ve received hundreds of emails since publishing Ahead of the Curve/What They Teach You at Harvard Business School, many asking variations of similar questions. Should I get an MBA? Is it worth it? What will I learn? What are b-schools looking for from applicants? Over the next few days, I’ll post some of the answers I give. But this interview’s a good place to start.
Next week I’m off to Barcelona to talk to a conference organized by GMAC – the folks who do the standardized tests for graduate schools. The title of my talk is “Why business should be taught more like an art and less like a science.” I hope to post the content of my talk once it’s done.
