. MBA Rational MGT/521 10/06/2012 Richard Bowman Abstract In this paper the subject to address are the objections to obtain an MBA and argue the points with reason to obtain an MBA. The three main objections to entering an MBA program are: 1) Cost 2) Time and effort required 3) Job availability in the current economic slowdown. Each argument against obtaining an MBA is countered with evidence that supports reasoning to obtain an MBA at almost any time, personal situation or career position. MBA Rational While an MBA might improve your quantitative, presentation, and communication skills, it might even get you thinking about ethics and strategy. However, one to two years of case studies aren’t going to turn you into a leader if you weren’t born one. There’s no learning charisma, persuasiveness, elegance, or gut instinct. This is why an MBA is no guarantee of advancement or even a job. Many MBAs find that they are not advancing and that, even in some circumstances, that they cannot find a job at all. This can be a very unfortunate situation, and yet it is important to acknowledge as a possibility for anyone going into an MBA program. This is particularly true in a down economy. Quitting your job to get an MBA, therefore, has risks that are important to acknowledge. Throughout my career, I've been in mainly in the financial services. My Bachelor's is in Business Management. I enjoy the creativity and personal interaction that the industry offers;.

. Top Reasons for Pursuing an MBA The Master of Business Administration (MBA) is a graduate business programme that covers a wide spectrum of business related topics from economics, organisational behaviour, project management to government policy. While it would make sense for an individual already working in the financial industry to undertake the MBA for a deeper understanding on relevant issues that she may come across at work, that is not the main reason why most are motivated to pursue an MBA. 33 percent of those surveyed in a recent poll conducted by JobsCentral of 181 individuals cited “Salary increment upon completion” as their motivation for pursuing an MBA, making it the number one reason. “Acquisition of knowledge and skills” was the second most popular reason with 21 percent picking it as their main motivation. Xinhui who is currently working in private banking agrees with the majority. She explains why she is toying with the idea of pursuing an MBA, “Besides having a better knowledge of business management, having an MBA will put me in a better position to ask for better pay,” “I had both personal and professional reasons for doing my MBA,” Debbie, who has just completed her MBA with graduate business school INSEAD, says. “Personally, it was the challenge to find the drive and enthusiasm needed to enhance my learning and to get involved in networking with like-minded professionals from all around the world. Another motivation was the opportunity to broaden my.

. Pursuit of an MBA Marvin Conway MGT/521 1 April 2010 Construct and Support an Argument Decision to Pursue an MBA To some, pursuing higher education is a waste of money and time. Others, such as me, may argue that it is an accomplishment and the benefits from acquiring a degree are worth the efforts and hard work. With the current national unemployment rate at 9.7% (US Department of Labor, Feb 2010) and steadily rising, it seems improbable that finding that “ideal” job is likely. During these tough economic times, I find myself with a bachelor’s degree at a low paying job with a child to take care of. It is because of this situation that I have chosen to pursue a Master’s of Business Administration (MBA) degree with an emphasis in Accounting; receiving higher education could be the answer to my problem. According to the job outlook by education 2006-16 (Occupational Outlook Quarterly), increased earnings and lower rates of unemployment are trends associated with additional levels of education (Liming & Wolf, 2008). After taking the Jungian 16-Type Personality Self-Assessment test, scoring ISTJ, I found that my results support my decision to pursue my MBA with an emphasis in Accounting. A person scoring ISTJ are found to be organized, compulsive, private, trustworthy, and practical people. Their possible career choices are office manager, accountant, business manager, tax agent, and public servant (Pearson Prentice Hall, 2007). I recognize that I.

. belaying all that, a good leader should be seen, heard, understood and known by ALL of their followers, otherwise who‘s leading whom? Someone might say is TV the place to get leadership advice? There is good advice and bad advice and you can learn from either, if you are paying attention. I also watch “The Apprentice” and “Survivor: ‘Whatever Island’” for the same purpose: to see how people lead and follow under varying conditions. Do not businesses do the same when they throw their people “into the fire”, “under the bus”, “to the dogs” and other such terms? “Survivor: WI” shows everyday people, business leaders and characters using their talents [or not] in competition, under extreme duress, and under the worst of all possible circumstances, with very few resources, just their talents, attitude and communication to get things done, win rewards or immunity to stay in the game and win the Grand Prize. While on “The Apprentice [Regular or Celebrity]” participants are MBAs, [or not] and/or talented [or not] business people or celebrities having to perform, lead as “project manager”, work as a team, compete individually and communicate, but under the best of all possible circumstances, as they have the resources of Donald Trump’s organization, NBC and Producer Mark Burnett’s contacts, New York City and a seeming unlimited budget to work with. What does effective leadership mean to me? It means “taking the bull by the horns” and riding the thing until you have proved you.

. THE MBA DECISION Ben Bates graduated from college six years ago with a finance undergraduate degree. Since graduation, he has been employed in the finance department at East Coast Yachts. Although he is satisfied with his current job, his goal is to become an investment banker. He feels that an MBA degree would allow him to achieve this goal. After examining schools, he has narrowed his choice to either Wilton University or Mount Perry College. Although internships are encouraged by both schools, to get class credit for the internship, no salary can be paid. Other than internships, neither schools will allow its students to work while enrolled in its MBA program. Ben’s annual salary at East Coast Yachts is $50,000 per year, and his salary is expected to increase at 3 percent per year until retirement. He is currently 28 years old and expects to work for 40 more years. His current job includes a fully paid health insurance plan, and his current average tax rate is 26 per- cent. Ben has a savings account with enough money to cover the entire cost of his MBA program. The Ritter College of Business at Wilton University is one of the top MBA programs in the country. The MBA degree requires two years of full-time enrollment at the university. The annual tuition is $65,000, payable at the beginning of each school year. Books and other supplies are estimated to cost $2,500 per year. Ben expects that after graduation from Wilton, he will receive a job offer for about $90,000 per.

. different Networking Topologies : a) Bus b) Star c) Ring d) Mesh e) Tree. Bus Topology: Bus topology is one the easiest topologies to install, it does not require lots of cabling. There are two most popular Ethernet cable types which are used in this topology they are 10Base-2 and 10BaseT. Bus topology based networks works with very limited devices. It performs fine as long as computer count remain with in 12 – 15, problems occurs when number of computer increases. Ring Topology: Ring topology is one of the old ways of building computer network design and it is pretty much obsolete. FDDI, SONET or Token Ring technologies are used to build ring technology. It is not widely popular in terms of usability but incase if you find it any where it will mostly be in schools or office buildings. Star Topology: This is the most commonly used network topology design you will come across in LAN computer networks. In Star, all computers are connected to central device called hub, router or switches using Unshielded Twisted Pair (UTP) or Shielded Twisted Pair cables. In star topology, we require more connecting devices like routers, cables unlike in bus topology where entire network is supported by single backbone. Tree Topology: Just as name suggest, the network design is little confusing and complex to understand at first but if we have better understanding of Star and Bus topologies then Tree is.

. Keeping jokes apart, this is for all MBA-Freshers who are expecting big bucks after completing their MBA. “Dreaming Big” is not an issue but achieving that dream always starts with small steps. It is said that “Rome was not built in a day” similarly you can’t demand higher salaries because you are a MBA. What if you are a MBA? Are you having anything else to boast, about which the corporate world would appreciate. If yes, then go out and shout “I am having this X thing which could meet Y Company’s expectations and for the same reason, I should get salary of ` Z”. The point is to think big but build small, something you can be proud of. If you don’t have the things to boast about try for Plan B. Make your career plan in such a way that you start with small company with small salary learn lots many things over there of-course at the Company’s cost, look out for options and in next couple of years take a big leap. Being a Placement Officer with KSMCS, I hear lot many times that students are saying; that I am having 2 years of work-experience and my last salary was ` 20K. So they must get at least that amount during placement process. My question to them is that if they are having experience of selling pharmaceutical products and they are applying in a Financial Company, how much relevance of their experience is to the latter company. As you are pursuing your MBA, you must be aware that MCA is always a Three Year Program, can’t you take your MBA also for Three Years, in.

. Why an MBA The MBA is not an end in itself, but a means to an end. It is a degree designed to give you the ability to develop your career to its fullest potential, at an accelerated pace. What will you get out of an MBA? Aside from a powerful life experience, the MBA degree should supply three main value propositions: Skills, Networks, and Brand. Skills These include the "hard skills" of economics, finance, marketing, operations, management, and accounting, as well as the "soft skills " of leadership, teamwork, ethics, and communication that are so critical for effective management. MBA students acquire these skills inside and outside the classroom. Since MBA programs attract people from very diverse industries and cultures, a program should be able to leverage these differences and translate them into learning opportunities. Networks An MBA degree program offers access to a network of MBA students, alumni, faculty, and business and community leaders. This network can be very useful when beginning a job search, developing a career path, building business relationships in your current career, or pursuing expertise outside your current field. For example, entrepreneurs need access to capital, business partners, vendors, and clients. Arts-related businesses need access to funding and strategic management in order to position themselves to be relevant in the marketplace. Global businesses need access to local business cultures as they expand their enterprises to new.
