Manager By Accident or Action (MBA)

An MBA Story from IMT Dubai

Have you ever wondered how many MBA graduates are around? How many students graduate each year globally with an MBA degree under their belt? What makes an MBA degree so vital? Why do so many people around the world enroll for an MBA?

But the most important question of them all is: Who should do an MBA and why?

MBA means business and real business. If you want a career in administration, rise up the ladder and be a business leader, then MBA is for you. If you are prepared to work hard, work smart and probably a few long hours, toil a little, then MBA is the program for you. MBA and your future career is not an easy ride no matter what the cozy newspaper articles say. The job market is very competitive and you have to put your best foot forward and be prepared to crack the toughest nuts, both people and challenges alike.

The job market in the UAE is in a lot of ways more competitive than that in India. The talent pool is huge, although not as much as India, but employers here look for a lot more in a candidate than the tag of an MBA to join their company. The candidate must have the blend of skills, confidence, measurable performance indicators and several other traits that an employer would feel are the right fit in their organization. Above all, the candidate must show the desire to work hard in a work environment very different to that of India. The ability to blend in seamlessly with people from different parts of the globe is a must. The candidate must be able to think holistically for the growth of the company. The rewards are enormous if the candidate can prove himself/herself.

Starting a career in a completely new environment is not easy, so IMT Dubai provides students the opportunity to do internships and company projects with MNCs and companies based in UAE. The students realize the importance of networking and relationship building. They realize what companies look for. They learn the business of doing business ethically and above all they are encouraged to take advantage of the one of the biggest business and cultural hubs in the world. Students at IMT Dubai, align their skill sets and academic qualifications and channelize it to the relevant industries through a myriad of corporate interactions including their internships and company projects. They take advantage of networking opportunities provided by IMT Dubai to match upto those expectations.

This is the true meaning of an MBA. It is no accident. It is a methodical and purposeful process of learning and self-improvement. They are Managers By their Actions (MBA). No matter where the graduate’s interest lies, Dubai is a land of opportunities, where there are multiple prospects for all those who persevere.
