An MBA requires at least two major
investments of time and also money, resources that rarely does
anyone have to waste out there, is not it? Therefore whoever
decides to leave for a course of this type need to make the most
of all that it can offer. Do you agree? Then check out the tips
of Silvio Laban, coordinator of Insper MBA programs to enforce
all their efforts.
1 - In the MBA,
unlike the graduation, the student is looking for a specific
knowledge and directed to meet any deficiency he
has in professional life. "The attitude of a professional who is
studying MBA should be more participatory and decided it is he
who is opting to acquire this knowledge, spontaneously," said
Laban. So do not expect anything to fall from the
sky. Understand that the course will require, yes, a lot of time
and dedication and most of its use will depend solely on the
efforts you have this learning.
2 - Choose the right time to do the MBA is
also very important to take every opportunity that travel can
bring. "The truth MBA is designed for individuals who already
have managerial experience and have already taken or are about
to assume leadership positions," said Laban. This career moment
homogeneity is very important because many MBA involves sharing
moments and exchange of experiences among students. "You can
only enrich the discussions if everyone can contribute," said
Laban. And of course, take the time to express their experiences
and learn from the experiences of colleagues.
3 - A good MBA course also has function to
develop behavioral skills - or soft
skills , as they say in the labor market. "These
skills need to be developed through experiences and activities,"
said Laban." So it is for the student to engage in these
activities in the classroom and outside the classroom," he says.
4 - Another essential point of an MBA is
to provide much - very much - networking among
students. "They are very strong relationships that you can take
for the rest of my life, both professionally and personally,"
said Laban. "It is very common, for example, to see people who
met the program after going to work together or assemble a
business," he says. For this, of course, you need to strive to
meet others, find issues and interests in common. In addition,
you must be careful not to let these cool relationships when the
course finished. Keep in touch always with both the school and
with former colleagues.
