|Success has a different meaning for different people. If someone has a dream of success of becoming a doctor then MBA is definitely not the course. So as far as I believe MBA may help in earning good in corporate world but it is not a course for success in life for everyone.|

"Is MBA necessary to succeed in life".
In my view MBA is not necessary to succeed in life, success depends on our skills and our ability, let's take an example Narendra Modi they don't know MBA but they get success in his life now he is number one powerful person in India why because he has some skills regarding that,
And Virat Kohli also he doesn't know MBA but he succeeded in his life, these kinds of examples we can apply here, so MBA is not necessary to succeed in life.
But it helps to get a good job, become a good entrepreneur in their life.
And it helps to understand the which kind of skills we need to have.
1. The Way of communication.
2. Body language.
4. Time management.
5. Fluent language.

|MBA is not necessary to succeed in our life. We should have a knowledge and also personal skills. That only will make one life and business can succeed.|
|Divya said: (Jul 26, 2017)|
|MBA may or may not be necessary to succeed in life. People who had made their mindset to do MBA in future and wanted to pursue a career in it, then MBA is the only key to those people's success, and people who do not want to pursue MBA as their career can also gain the required knowledge of business by learning from their surroundings.|
|Megha said: (Jul 22, 2017)|
|I think it's not necessary to do MBA, if we have an iq or knowledgable person that's enough to get success in our life, if we are not a talented person then we could not succeed in spite of this MBA certificate.|
|Ragesh Rk said: (Jun 26, 2017)|
|If a person wants to be a successful person in managerial field MBA is mandatory since it accelerates his career growth. But only with the MBA, we cannot succeed in life because in order to be a successful person in life we need to succeed in both the family life and professional life. Through MBA we get a lot of exposure, MBA helps in developing our attitude, skills etc which have a major impact in our personal life thereby using all these benefits in an optimistic manner in our both personal and professional life ultimately we can succeed in life!|
|Aniket said: (May 11, 2017)|
|In an IT industry, you need good technical and communication skills to grow primarily. MBA gives an acceleration to your career graph but it won't give you the technical expertise in any way.|
|Vishal M G said: (Apr 13, 2017)|
|Today's era most of the engineers do MBA only because of not getting success as per their desire. They've created market by themselves. Any person can become a well shine in life, when he/she does the things which he likes in is life. By having management skills tells better how to grasp the profit. Right so its really beneficial to have an MBA.|
|Thareef said: (Jan 26, 2017)|
|MBA learn the how to balance the business.

|Mayur Chaudhari said: (Jan 22, 2017)|
|It is not necessary to do MBA for succeed in life.
It is depend on our interest.
|Riya Varshney said: (Jan 18, 2017)|
|In my opinion, an MBA is not necessary to succeed in life. It's our passion, self-determination and our confidence that really matters for our success. Our world is full of such examples when people succeed without an MBA. One of them is my father who became a successful businessman without MBA. He did it because of his self-determination.|
|Akku said: (Dec 24, 2016)|
|Hi, I don't think that MBA is necessary to succeed in life. MBA adds value to our knowledge about business and it doesn't mean it is necessary because there are individuals without MBA staying very successful in life. And I think if one has strong intension or passion he can succeed.|
|Chehak Gupta said: (Dec 21, 2016)|
|Firstly, I want to know is there is any mark or any limit to success to which we can say yes this is end now he had to gain all success, there is different meaning or say diff. The level of success to everyone. First, think in your mind when you call yourself a successful when you are able to buy a Mercedes or BMW or when you become eligible enough and able to serve your family on your own and led a luxurious life. If you earned a lot of money in future and then someone asks you what you have done, I will do the same (study or your field) then is there any security he will also able to earn money like you? MBA or any other degree is a backup which you can use to get some job in a company or anything to earn your living.
Success does n't say I will come after two years or five years, it will come on their own, you should just continue your efforts or keep trying to achieve your goal. Its depends upon you what you can do and how you can do to gain YOUR success.
Today illiterate and literate are both rich or successful.
|Mustak Ahmad,Sahibabad said: (Nov 26, 2016)|
Basically, MBA is a postgraduate administration degree which is referred to holistic approach about the domestic market as well as global market.
MBA is a technical degree which sharpens our skills and knowledge. It's not necessary that you succeed in your life but it is obvious that MBA degree will enhance your income as well as learning skills. So, it is not necessary.
Secondly, we can take an example of ratan tata he is not an MBA. But he is very successful business owners. We can take an example of Bollywood actor like Shahrukh Khan, Salman Khan, Aamir Khan, Sachin, Virat Kohli and so of which are very successful in his career. So finally I believe that MBA. Is not necessary for succeed in life.
|Shruti said: (Nov 26, 2016)|
|HI. Well if we talk about successful entrepreneurs and other leading managers then we will see they barely have any masters degree in any management and business courses, hence for running a business and to be a leader attaining an MBA degree is not so important. Leadership, Management is charismatic, though pedagogy can help you to learn it by experience and applying practical knowledge and that is why we do have MBA degrees. MBA is not only a degree but a chance from ample opportunities to grow and boom your inner sight. Though MBA isn't important to succeed in life yet I would say that it plays an integral part in the development and growth of one's self-esteem and knowledge.|
|Thoshi said: (Oct 27, 2016)|
|MBA is not a must thing to attain success in life but I'm sure there will be the difference between people who got success in life with MBA and MBA. Only the MBA could find tactics to be the success in life in a systematic manner and those people see everything as the business it would be stuck in the minds and heart of MBA's even during their college life. So to have a successful business life MBA is the best and better option for you.|
|Nikita Kumawat said: (Oct 15, 2016)|
|No, I don't think MBA is necessary to succeed in life. MBA is good for knowledge. MBA will polish your skills in business, will make you active, help you participate in group discussions and overcome your flaws but it is not necessary to succeed in life. One can be successful with other degrees also if he/she have a good knowledge in their field.|
|Sagar said: (Sep 15, 2016)|
Myself Sagar From Nashik Maharashtra I was passed my MBA in 2013 and running 3 business successfully and I know MBA don't make you Confident or Smart but it improve your skills.
The problem is with education System, Marks, Percentage, Averages.
|Mohani Bhardwaj said: (Sep 14, 2016)|
|Hi, friends. In my point of view, every degree has its own importance so if you want to make your career in this field, you can definitely pursue MBA but it would not good to say that MBA makes the person confident. Nobody can make the person confident, only the person himself create the confidence. So I would say, MBA is not necessary but only important to those who wants to makes money in this field.|
|Akanksha Gupta said: (Sep 8, 2016)|
|Every degree has its own importance. If a person is opting for MBA just to get a 6 digit salary or more, then it's worthless. And if someone is really having a keen interest in MBA, then he/she must go for it. Undoubtedly, MBA will not only give you a master degree but also boost your confidence, will bring a positive attitude, enhance and develop your communication skills and business skills, removes stage fear etc. You will also learn to manage the work as well as money. So it's always advisable to go for MBA after your graduation. But going for MBA just for salary is stultification. Because you can also get a salary which is decent enough through your graduation degree.
So the famous saying "Investment in knowledge always pays the best interest" there's nothing on target to go for MBA because it will surely help you get success in life.
|Santunu Biswal said: (Aug 23, 2016)|
This Santunu from my point of view MBA is not necessary but it has some importance. This is the place where a person can know everything relating to business and a person who are not aware of any business they can know the theoretical and practical knowledge of the business. It will improve the attitude and behavior and business communication skill of a person. Whoever in this world are successful businessmen they all are following the business profession, they may not follow initially or directly but somehow they are following indirectly. Here, at last, I can conclude that a business and business course are correlated to each other.
|Gr Rao said: (Apr 26, 2016)|
|Dear all, pursuit of excellence is the art of master of behaviour management. I did my graduation in commerce, hence I know some subjects of discussion in MBA Schools. As somebody said going to college n having experienced faculty is very important. As I said above it is very much necessary to understand not only MBA subjects of your choice, you need to learn country and people. This will help when you join common clubs like rotary or lions. You need to explore n exploit library for printed media and for latest submissions of seniors by way of part of assignments. What is world thinking in your country thinking? If you want to work as employees, you need to be clear on company goals.|
|Avnindra Verma said: (Feb 20, 2016)|
|Hi, I am Avi and current I'm pursuing MBA.
In my point of view,
MBA helps to remove your stage-fear and hesitation because some peoples are so introverted in nature just like me.
It enhance your skills ability also. It also helps to improve your communication skills, attitude and behaviour.
MBA is not just a degree and also it's not all about the packages or salary.
If you've some leadership skills then you can definitely go with the MBA. It also helps to learn how to manage the work in difficult condition or in under-pressure when you're working within the organization.
It shows how to give respect and can make better relationship with the customers. By using these type of qualities and features, you had never be disappointed with yourself.
MBA is one of the biggest opportunity to succeed in life.
|Priyanka.Hk said: (Feb 4, 2016)|
|In my view of point MBA is important because it gives opportunity not only for commerce background it is wide opened any fields it may be science or arts stream can do MBA. In current norms have created MBA trend and good package of salary not only salary but also opportunities like foreign exchange and you will be well verse in one management.|
|Suraj Anand said: (Jan 31, 2016)|
|Hello everyone, A very good discussion is going on. I want to add up something in them.
Every degree has some importance in their field. That contain lots of knowledge and many more things that can be helpful in the real corporate world. But to be successful, It can be important but it is not necessary.
MBA is totally related to the market, for the market you should have an idea that can solve the problems of the customer by which you can make money that's it. You should have knowledge of fieldwork, market research. No another degree is required.
|Ashutosh Sharma said: (Jan 11, 2016)|
|Why only MBA? BBA and MBA are having the same subjects/topics etc, 90% to 95% course is same, and peoples mindset is like if you don't have an MBA degree with you then you won't be successful in any other tasks/things you do which are different from business of management field.
Is MBA really a path towards success, can't a person have interest in other field and make their life successful by achieving a lot more in the professions or fields of their interest. One needs hard work, determination, perseverance, dedication, will power and a lot of interest for the profession or field of their choice.
|Jinumm said: (Dec 23, 2015)|
|I believe whether you look forward to strengthening your ground in the area of entrepreneurship or have your goal well focused on escalating the corporate rung, it is important that you go for an MBA degree.
MBA degree will help you get an insight into the tricks &acumen necessary for competent handling of business and segments constituting it. You may be wonderfully knowledgeable, but an MBA program relevant to your field of operation will help sharpen your managerial skills & soft skills necessary for man management.
To go by the current employment details, according to a recently taken you. S based statistics, 76% of MBA graduates were recruited in three months time of completion. The data pertains to 2010, but the preceding year saw recruitment to the tune of 71%. The differential speaks volumes about the relation between the priceless degree and its current relevance.
|Pradeep Garg said: (Dec 1, 2015)|
|If one want to success in life, then love to work. Because if you pursuing MBA just for money and success, and you actually don't want to do it, then it is worthless. One saying is its good to be a good poet than a bad engineer.|
|Chandan Mishra said: (Oct 6, 2015)|
|Hi friends this is Chandan Mishra.
This is very important topic to discuss themselves. I want to support, very people should at least one degree which gives them more power and recommend to achieve anything which they want to achieve. So that I prefer to, should knowledge about their field. It gives more extension to get our task with MBA degree we can show our skills I every business field. It shows our education.
|Ajay said: (Sep 15, 2015)|
I reads some threads before written this most of persons and I am also agree at this MBA is not necessary for success in life. You know this today life lot of person are Educated and process. But in lots person only those people are success. Who do hard work and keep knowledge about them.
|Abhishek Rana said: (Jul 15, 2015)|
|According to me MBA is necessary to succeed in life. It is not just a degree it's a course of personality development, the course of improving n enhancing communication skills, generating self confidence, removing stage fear, developing a positive attitude towards life.
I agree that today various institutions are running MBA programme but it definitely depends on the faculty and the individual how he learns and what attitude he has for MBA. Does he seriously want to achieve success in life by doing this programme or a he take this as a normal degree.
Well if a person want to develop a positive attitude, and learn how to face challenges and risk in life, how to manage the resources, costing, leadership, entrepreneurship, and there are many things in MBA, he should go for this degree to succeed in life and to be successful in life.
|Karthick said: (Jun 10, 2015)|
MBA is a internationally recognized course. It help the beginners those who start a firm to enhance and make our business growth into initial level. When compared to other professional courses like MCA, BE and ME can only teach about the subject knowledge but MBA teach us to know about the discipline and practical knowledge too.
|Mercy said: (Jun 5, 2015)|
MBA is just a Post Graduate degree which describes that you are a degree holder. Whereas there are many courses that you can opt to. MBA is a right choice for those whose are capable of obtaining the work of management, and for those who are interested in that field.
Selecting a degree is the choice of a particular person. The one who feels MBA is the right choice for him/her to succeed in their life, then MBA is really necessary for them to succeed.
|Harishbhanot said: (Apr 25, 2015)|
|A person who want to do MBA according to me he should do from regular or reputed college otherwise doing MBA in distance will waste your money and you will not get an appropriate knowledge. Doing MBA from reputed college will give you better opportunity of getting job in reputed companies in better salary package.|
|Krishna said: (Apr 11, 2015)|
|In my view s=s it means success = satisfaction. MBA is just a degree. I think what makes you successful in life is knowledge and hard work. I don't think people after doing MBA have full knowledge of the corporate world. There is lots of other things other than MBA can provide you knowledge to understand the corporate world.
In my view if think you have enough knowledge and you know where you want to be and what you want from your life and what is your level of success. You don't need to have MBA degree.
|Mayank said: (Mar 24, 2015)|
I am Mayank.
If I talk about myself I am an Engineering Graduate Still Unemployed (its been two years since I Passed out from college) and that's because I didn't know anything better to do other than Engineering (that's other thing).
So my point is if you look at my situation it looks like MBA is a very good Option for me as to completely change my career flow, I desperately need that, so for me doing MBA could open new opportunities and its a complete new chance for me to learn something new which could lead me towards a better career doing MBA will improve my skills, my personality, I will be more confident then, and and as I said its a new chance for me.
But this is applicable to people like me, other than that people who are already doing good in there careers may not need any MBA course, Of course they can improve there positions and salaries by going for MBA. But I don't think that MBA is the only Key to get Success in Life, not at all.
Important is that why do Want to go for MBA (or any other PG Course) You should have a reason behind it and if you have an appropriate reason than just throw yourself in that field be it MBA or anything.
Agreed that Good Colleges are the key Factor but If you really want to learn and shine you can do it anywhere. But not just because everybody is saying doing MBA is Good and Doing it just to get good salary package and lifestyle and an MBA tag, you won't get anywhere (That happened to me with Engineering!).
So again Being successful has nothing to with MBA,
Thank you for reading.
|Anil Goswami said: (Mar 23, 2015)|
|No, not at all MBA is not necessary to succeed in life for instance those who want to make career in sports need not to be an MBA likewise different people different career choices so you just need to be ensure the field you want to go you have enough knowledge about it.|
|Shanthipriya said: (Feb 28, 2015)|
|Hi I am Shanthipriya. According to me "Success" is a relative term. Its up to an individual to decide on what is success for him/her in life. Taking business into consideration, an MBA gives you an additional knowledge in to the know-how of the business environment and acts as a support. It is certainly not necessary to have the three letter degree to be successful in one's entrepreneurial/managerial life.
The concepts taught at a B-school can definitely be learnt through experience too. However, that becomes an expensive course. Thus, one can use an MBA degree to help him in tough times rather than entirely relying on it to run a business/ lead a team.
|Apurva Gautam said: (Feb 21, 2015)|
According to me MBA is necessary for getting a good corporate job, it is a field which help people how to interact with others and filled people with greater management knowledge, confidence, interpersonal skills, good communication skills, etc.
I am also pursuing MBA from ITS college Mohannagar (Gzb). I think MBA with Finance in major and Marketing in minor specialization has very good career options.
|Saumya Sinha said: (Feb 7, 2015)|
|I have completed my MBA WITH Marketing & finance as my specialization in 2013 but I don't think that it is a good option. It would be only good when you do it from IIM or from a reputed college otherwise it very difficult to get placed in a reputed company. If you really want to make a career in MBA field do it from A grade college otherwise drop the idea of doing MBA because it is just only wasting your money.|
|Deepak said: (Jan 22, 2015)|
|Certainly yes, because MBA course helps to enhance thinking, we get surrounded by many talented people, professors who have worked in corporate world. Overall it makes the atmosphere to think like an entrepreneur and business strategist.|
|Hariprasad Shanbhag said: (Jan 3, 2015)|
|Hi. Hence financial sector and eCommerce sector has the boom in the market. By selecting finance has the major and marketing has minor specialization their is a great opportunity for MBA for the better career.|
|Hariprasadshanbhag said: (Jan 3, 2015)|
|Hi, hence their is a great opportunity in the financial sector and ecommerce sector MBA degree has a boom in world wide market. Hence I will suggest take finance has the major specialization and marketing has the minor for your better career growth.|
|Hassanuddin said: (Dec 21, 2014)|
I am Hassanuddin Qureshi.
Yes, MBA is the most successful to enter in the corporate world in day to day life, MBA became the most important in each and every person such an Engineering students also doing MBA after is engineering is finish, doctor, lawyer. All are doing MBA after completion of the degree in the respective fields. If you to success in todays world and earned a good amount of salaries and all MBA played an important role in our life.
Even I also pursuing MBA in AIMS college Bangalore. I learned without any MBA knowledge there is no job according to my views.
MBA is the key success of each and every person to success and achieve their goals and objectives what people sets for their in their own life.
MBA is all about your whole academic career shows in the corporate world.
If somebody want a good jobs and all they should through the each an every concept whats MBA teaches in the PG.
Thanks to one an All.
|Kamal said: (Dec 13, 2014)|
|MBA is all about getting into top B-Schools and making your life better through better exposure and high paying opportunities. It is a gateway for making change in your life esp. For those who don't have good academic background earlier.|
|Rohit Kumar said: (Dec 1, 2014)|
As per my opinion MBA is very important, if you want to be in corporate and get success in corporate. Without MBA you can't grow at the highest level. MBA is the key of success and it gives you better opportunities to grow.
Today's era most of the engineers do MBA only because of not getting success as per their desire. MBA gives them an opportunities to grow in life, during MBA study you will find that you are more knowledge in corporate and it polish your personality and makes you feel master in business world. It gives you ability to think out of the box and manage the people in the organization. Managing people in the organization is very important once you will be at the managerial level you need to have work with your team so the managing your employee is very important.
So ultimate MBA is very professional work which enhance your skills and knowledge.
|Sachin said: (Nov 24, 2014)|
|I agree with all of you. But doing MBA in good reputed college is very important and after MBA you can do jobs in various sectors as well as you can develop your own business. i.e. if you have done MBA in agriculture business management, then you can start any Agro-based industry.|
|Sovasisshya Patra said: (Nov 20, 2014)|
|Hi! I am Sovasisshya, in my point of view MBA is not require for the betterment of our life. Yes we can say MBA is require to gain more knowledge about how to deal with the upcoming challenges of business and to know about organizational planning and controlling. For example if we see any IS and OS officer not having MBA certificate only they are graduates.|
|Ratanjay said: (Nov 14, 2014)|
|MBA might not seem necessary at the moment, it's not mandatory for success. But it fasten things up, it works as a catalyst for you to achieve your career goal. MBA is not just a degree, it is a personality development program where they give you real time problems which you may have to solve as an individual or as a team member. It makes you analytical towards to problem.
In addition it adds confidence to you. It clears your mind, It can describe what you may feel but can't express in words. It's good if you are gifted with above features, but we know that not all of us are. Therefore, MBA is a way to get smart or even smarter.
P. S. - Pursuing MBA from a reputed institute means something, not from any ABC** college of Management.
|Amita said: (Nov 8, 2014)|
|In my point of view MBA is not necessary for succeed in Life. A person who is hard working, have a goal, sincere etc can be a successful person in life. If he/she is a MBA holder or not it doesn't matter. Only thing is that should have the power to face what all comes in front of him.|
|Mukesh Sao said: (Nov 3, 2014)|
In my point of view, MBA is not necessary for carrier objective because MBA is not enough for knowing our society, through its we learn only theoretical knowledge as well as corporate practice. That's why MBA is not necessary for carrier.
|Thoufu Bhai said: (Oct 25, 2014)|
|Hi, I am MBA Graduate, as my point of view, MBA is not everything in life because as we are seeing every successful persons are not MBAs, so MBA is not everything, there are much more things to learn from our experience to be successful in our life.|
|Deepa said: (Oct 3, 2014)|
I have completed MBA. But my point of view, I'm not Agree with MBA is not necessary for succeed in life. Most of the successful the people have not certify on MBA. But they are the roll models for us. And many MNC Company CEO's are not MBA's. But MBA is Important for to know the organizing, planning, directing and controlling the people in the work. Even when your studying the MBA To get the Knowledge for how the organization will work and how to compete with the Competitors, and it's dependence up on their interest. Comparing with engineering MBA is "EVERGREEN" Every time we get the job there is no rescission on MBA's Now days many of them prefer for MBA.
|Ganu said: (Oct 1, 2014)|
|Hi, MBA is most important in successive life. Either MBA is important or not important. It is depend on your interest. So you are science student then do master in science field.|
|Janani said: (Aug 17, 2014)|
|Hi friends, though everyone shared their views but in my point of view we can gain more knowledge through masters degree. Not even an MBA although all the masters degree will guide a person in good carrier. Whenever we study more we can extract many types of new things so MBA is a good opportunity for you to attain success in life. A person should to be full-fledged and to show keen interests while doing masters degree, then he/she will be a good achiever in life.|
|Hemraj said: (Jul 21, 2014)|
I have completed my MBA current year. Foretime, I had just graduated degree. I wanted take higher education, but I could not this, lack of family finance problems. Family had more responsibilities. Then I took decision for job. I did 1 year job and save money. Or started my MBA degree. Now I have full confidence and lack of my anger.
I want to say my friends. MBA build to person very polite. You can see MBA person's on face always smile. Or smile is sword. I realized after MBA. If person have smile, politeness, confidence, enthusiasm and strategy these kind of things They are MBA.
|Nagaraju said: (Jul 5, 2014)|
|All of good comments regarding this topic. Anyway the MBA need not necessary to get a job. Because when one person having potential strength, I mean having capable for his work and interested to do work automatically that the success will come.|
|Aditi said: (Jun 24, 2014)|
I don't agree that MBA is necessary to get success in life. MBA can give you knowledge about business administration. It doesn't give you success mantras for life. For some the business administration can result into successful life while some are not made for business at all. It all depends on what you are interested in.
But for sure it adds to your knowledge and increase the probability of getting a good job as is the case with many other professional courses. Knowledge is always a boon. It provides us orientation towards this competitive world. And acquiring new skills and knowledge can make you successful coupled with a lot of interest and zeal to achieve and MBA is just one of the many helping hands.
|Tirtha Gupta said: (Jun 14, 2014)|
|In my point of view in today's world of competitiveness a degree is very necessary to get hold of a good job. So according to me MBA is a good option for career after completion the graduation. The MBA degree itself plays an important role among today's youth. This degree simply helps to get a good job with a good salary.|
|Rohit Lubana said: (Jun 6, 2014)|
MBA Gives exposure of market, business and management. If person know good about market and business and also have good management skills then there is not a need to do MBA.
We have to do MBA in our life not for a degree achieving but for becoming professional how to manage other person.
|Pooja93 said: (Jun 3, 2014)|
I don't really agree that MBA is necessary to succeed in life for that matter I don't think any degree is necessary. It depends on our capability hard work determination and focus. If we really excel in whatever job we doing I don't think any degree will hold the importance. Earlier when all these courses were not introduced still people were successful with amazing knowledge and great vision for the industry. Though I agree MBA helps us to get an insight of corporate world. Teaches us to manage our work and helps us to grow but its not 'NECESSARY'.
|Shilpa said: (Mar 8, 2014)|
|You will get success in life or not doesn't depend on whether you have MBA degree or not. It is a journey which can lead to success but there are many roads of success so according to me cannot call it necessity because it is one of the roads of success not only the one.|
|Shalini said: (Feb 21, 2014)|
|Getting an education is an important part of success in today's business world. It's competitive out there, and the more educated you are, the better your chances of landing a good job are. That's why getting a Masters of Business Administration (MBA) is so important " education leads to opportunities.
There are only a select few in the world who can drop out of school and go on to make a significant contribution to the world. For the rest of us, education is key. Take a look at three real reasons why an MBA degree is important in the business world.
1. Increase your hiring opportunities. Generally, the more education you have, the better your career opportunities and choices are. A MBA graduate is an extremely valuable asset to an organization. Because of the competition in today's business world, you may actually find that you need a MBA degree to even have a first interview.
In school, MBA students learn different techniques and skills that can help businesses. Some companies plan to hire MBA students, maybe even paying for current employees to go back to school and get a MBA. You know that if a company is willing to pay for employees to get the degree, it's certainly an asset.
2. Get paid more. With a MBA degree in hand, you can actually demand a higher salary. According to a 2007 Corporate Recruiters Survey, employers are willing to pay significantly more for job candidates with an MBA degree. The survey suggests that companies will pay up to 84 percent more. It is hard work to earn a MBA degree and your salary certainly should reflect that.
3. Build your network. One of the really valuable parts of getting a MBA degree is the networking opportunities. When you are studying for a MBA, you are with people from all walks of life, all trying to accomplish the same goal. These are the future leaders in the business world. You can connect with people who may one day lead corporations. These relationships become very valuable for you, as a professional, but also for your future company. The relationships you forge in the MBA classroom will get you into groups and organizations that will certainly benefit your future employer.
Going back to school, for any reason, is always a good idea. Getting a MBA will increase your chances of finding a great job with a solid company.

I appraise all of you for your nice opinion. Yes MBA is of course enhance our managerial skills. We learn many thing in the MBA program. So to successful handle any organisation or your business this will be really helpful.
Yes we can also not ignore the people who have succeed in their life without MBA.

|According to me, MBA is not necessary to get the success in life, Many people are there who haven't done an MBA yet they are successful in life. We can take the example of Dhirubhai ambani and many more who just dropped out from the MBA and yet they are successful in life. It was their vision, passion, hard work and dedication which took them to achieve their goals in life.
But MBA degree gives you a added advantage over others in terms of knowledge, how to handle business situations, how to deal with the clients, how to face the real situations. 2 year of course which includes summer internship, different courses related to finance, marketing, HR, Operations and many more gives you a broad idea about the whole Business and their strategies works.

|Every situation has failure and success. As my point of view one who balances success and failure equally then he will be known as MBA student. Those who fails 100 times and got success in 101th time those people knows the value of MBA not but from B-schools within couple of years. As a degree it is Ok but try to use the concepts till your life ends.|
|Shivangi Mishra said: (Jan 18, 2014)|
The person who wants to do MBA should first ask himself a question "Is it a career need or more of an infatuation of being an MBA?" By answering this you can identify whether an MBA is really worth it for you or not. In case if you are not aware of such a basic question then an MBA degree would be fruitless.
Doing an MBA is a challenging task, you need to estimate whether you really need one and are capable of the same.

|If you don't know how to manage people and how to manage various work your degree is waste. MBA is teach all about managing all resources.|

|Thank you for such wonderful and helpful information related to MBA. Choosing a specific domain is the most critical decision in life. Whether a student should opt for MBA or M.Tech or any other professional courses. Many of time students misunderstand themselves and unable to choose the best suitable programs for them and some of goes with their parents. So it's very vital to know the facts of each and every domain whether it is MBA or M.Tech. Once again thank you for providing the wonder or you have enlighten the way for MBA Students. Now at least students have the clear idea for the MBA.|
|Gaurav said: (Nov 19, 2013)|
|With all due respect to my friends who have stated above that MBA is not necessary to become successful, I just want to ask a question 'if MBA is not useful/necessary, then why all these big or small companies in their job specification ask for an MBA with so many years of work experience'. Why only MBA's are hired for certain positions or you have to work your ass off to get that position.
You either possess or learn skills, yes there are people who have done good without having an MBA degree but how can you forget the achievements of people who have done good after doing their MBA for eg. Ambani Brothers, Ms. Indira Nooyi, Flipkart's Director, Ms. Vinita Bali, Ms. Chanda kochhar and many more.
|Anshu said: (Nov 7, 2013)|
|I only want to say the person having capacity to failure have confidence and knowledge and skill to perform work only can success. MBA also plays important role to generate knowledge, skill and personality development this is all about what I want to say.|
|Ankush said: (Oct 20, 2013)|
|This is such a ludicrous topic. I can give you at least 12 names who have not done MBA but has successful career so I don't think that MBA is necessary to succeed in life however it provides you very good platform for your growth.|
|Sahil said: (Oct 19, 2013)|
|I agree with people who are saying that to achieve success in life one must possess ability, skills, confidence and attitude but we all were born same nobody has got all these things by birth it all depends upon under what circumstances and type of people you have been lived and which is out of your concern so people develop their skill knowledge confidence exposure later on with their studies. With other students, with teachers, with people who have spent their time in industry corporate and market and things are learned their developed there so if MBA is not important or good for somebody that does not mean its ridiculous or worthless.
Because every newly born child is BILL GATES, EDISON and ZUCKERBERG but not every grown up MAN.
Studies never harm it could be a matter of choice. If it is not what were bill gates and zuckerberg doing at harvard uni in graduation classes. We need to have some deeper thoughts.
|Mayank said: (Sep 24, 2013)|
|Come on man grow up! why need to ask such questions? If you are a good science student do your masters in science first.
If you are in commerce or any other field than get masters of your subject first.
After that go for MBA.
Industry now needs an employee who is master of his subject (basic academics, ME/MCOM/MSC/MSW/ etc. First and then who can manage all the affairs.
If you are not the master of your subject or I mean to say if you don't have enough knowledge then even an MBA will not help.
MBA from top reputed institutes is the only hope those who want to sincerely pursue an MBA.
|Jobs said: (Sep 19, 2013)|
|Is steve jobs, mark zuckerberg, bill gates and other big personalities are an MBA graduate? NO, they just did what they wanted to do and they became successful in it. So, an MBA is not that necessary to be a big man. Its the talent, passion, luck, confidence which takes you far away. If you get failed in achieving your dream never mind, just give it a try. As said in a movie " life ain't about how hard you hit, its about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward that's how winning is done. ".|
|Mahendra Kumar said: (Sep 16, 2013)|
|I am agreed with all of them, but according to me MBA is not necessary for getting successful in life. If you having skills, knowledge, confidence, and willingness to do something then success is always try to find you. MBA is for those who doesn't have ability, skills to do something, its improving your skills, but it depend on yourself whether you are getting some thing or not. If you having confident about yourself then you doesn't need any degree, while you getting successful in your life. Because.
Confidence Comes Naturally With Success, But Success Comes Only For Those Who Are Confident.
|Purnima said: (Aug 19, 2013)|
|MBA is a kind of degree basically. Its not about MBA or any other degree. You can succeed in any field the matter is that you need to give your best at the end and definitely you will achieve your goal towards the success.|
|Geetha said: (Jul 16, 2013)|
|Above friends thanks for suggestions. But One Thing! some people were saying that people who can sell veggies has more enough knowledge rather than acquiring MBA. Question is If Knowledge is enough for selling vegetables then better sell them & Dont compare anyone to anything pl question the answer thats it. . If you can't achieve anything you can't degrade someone else. That doesn't make sense.|
|Sarita said: (Jul 12, 2013)|
|MBA which tells you how to manage yourself with this society and others so I think it may be best for everyone. After this you will understand the strategy of the society or humans.|
|Amit said: (Jun 25, 2013)|
|I think MBA is more important want to success in life if any person start an own business they get the knowledge about strategy, market, product, price etc. How the enter the market which strategy are using like market, place promotion and others. How the attract the customer and market evaluation which type of product customer need, want and desire.|
|Brijender said: (Jun 20, 2013)|
|MBA will never make you star on the planet, it is just drop of ocean, drop can not feel ocean but told lesson that change. It means not change whole world, change in inner thinking and external behaviour. Regularity, unity of your thoughts and emotions. Don't run like disabled ass runs in racing. Run like a bullet he never knows where he kills or salute someone.|
|Freedomfighter said: (May 4, 2013)|
|I am not a manager but a leader, and I don't hold a MBA degree/diploma. I don't have to be a manager to make other employees work; I just have to be a good human being. I love to lead a pack of hungry wolves, and get the job done - in time, and of high-quality. The kind of determination and concentration you require in order to achieve your goal isn't something which you'll learn from experiences of a MBA institute's cafeteria. That you will learn when you really put your heart and soul in your work. Everyone cries for more money, more incentives, more of everything - but work.
This is to all those crying babies who need a nappy change every hour - real personalities aren't born in Harvards or IIMs, they are just too good to be associated with a mere brand! Real personalities have a character, have a soul, and above all have a God watching over them. They don't run after success; nor do they chase degrees. They simply live and let others live. So strive hard to be a good leader, because my friend, everyone is already managing something or the other.
What good would you do to the society by becoming a good manager anyways? When you want to bring about a change, it is easier to change a process rather than change a group of people, because people never change. For example, Pakistanis and Chinese politicians can never change, but India's foreign policy can! I'll leave that debate for some other forum.
|Marisham said: (Apr 17, 2013)|
|I think a bookish knowledge of 2 yr MBA program would serve no food, what matters is the right attitude and instead d correct vision one aims to be along with sustained hard work would lead a successful life. MBA would only be useful to those who not only have ability to grasp/understand management principles but also the confidence of Implementing the practices of management along with their daily lives.
For eg, As we know the most basic activities which a manager should possess are :Leading the subordinates, Motivating them time to time, Using the most suitable tactics, Increasing the organisation's prosperity, Professionalism, Positive attitude towards work and above all, acting smart at the right time is most important, a MBA degree would surely not serve the purpose! YOU have to have those qualities in you in real. !
|Ajas said: (Mar 17, 2013)|
According to me MBA is a Brushing up tool for the peoples who have the quality of leading others. It also helpful to others who don't possess quality of thinking analytically it develops attitude and quality of thinking analytically and logically.
There many peoples who don't have the MBA degree but also they are successful businessman.
|Santosh said: (Feb 24, 2013)|
|Hi I have done my MBA last year now I feel much more confident and satisfied. I always wanted to pursue a higher education but lacked monetary support so when I got a job from that next month I started the MBA course during the 2yr time I had a major accident but I per sued my will and last year was a great time when I received the degree. I am really happy it did not turn to reward in terms of higher pay by my employer but still I have no regrets I got more respect by friends my relatives. Good luck to all who believe in their dreams of doing MBA or CA or any other course its your choice man. Its your life live it on your own terms. Bye.|
|Tiruman said: (Feb 23, 2013)|
|Hi friends, MBA is good course to learn by every person, because it tells about how lead in life. It tells about how to manage our plans and how to lead our business. MBA is a course which is having practical thinking and practical doing about the subject. Every one likes it because it is close to our daily life. I think this very important course for a student who wants to enjoy studying.|
|Kumar S said: (Feb 5, 2013)|
|Hi to all, doing MBA, Engineering or CA, are any other degree. Is the same. It all depends on his / her willing.
Any person can become a well shine in life, when he/she does the things which he likes in is life.
So, think BIG, Follow it and the success will be at your feet.
My best wishes to me and for all.
|Peter said: (Feb 5, 2013)|
|To properly answer this question, a person first needs to to define what "success" means to them as an individual- material gain? having an impact on society? a well-balanced professional and personal life? etc. etc.
As a business school admissions consultant that works with a global client base, I see too many candidates thinking an MBA is the key to success, when it is simply a stepping stone along the path to fulfilling your professional objectives. Clearly defined life goals, be they professional or personal are what brings success.
|Ranjan said: (Jan 25, 2013)|
|HI. Friends in my view MBA is a good professional course. Many top company also recruited MBA degree holder with good marks. It is a good investment for bright future in economic market. As we know that every thing has two side good and bad. In some case MBA course has negative point like it is having less scope for development.|
|Ashish Yadav said: (Jan 19, 2013)|
|Technical students do MBA to learn management skills to get a job, yeah a good job, in actual. Thus doing MBA surely uplifts you to a next level in hierarchy of your office. Thus you would be successful in life doing an MBA is true, but its vice-verse in not.
The question asks whether MBA is necessary to succeed in life, its not at all necessary to succeed in life. Most of the best entrepreneurs of the world have not done their MBA while they were on the top. Thus to be successful in life, you have to do hard work and have ambitions. And it is obviously not necessary to do MBA for that.
|Payel said: (Jan 3, 2013)|
|I think MBA is a smarter and shorter way to get a proper job. Frankly speaking, now-a-days, competition is very tough and there is no assurance that somebody will get a govt job within few years after completing the graduation, and in case of non govt job, job in corporate world a management degree is always welcome. So by doing MBA one can secure a job in private company at-least.|
|Vishal Bhojani said: (Jan 3, 2013)|
|What I feel is, it totally depends on us, what we have to take from this degree. For some its just for fame, for some everything. I am MBA finance. Not from best college but I have done. I would like to tell for those who won't be pursuing their MBA from big colleges that if you have some other passion - follow it. If not make your passion to find your passion. Finding does not mean enrolling in MBA programme.
Lets say if you feel I want to make finance as my passion or career, for that you can do MBA but you also have to do much beyond that. Their is lot in finance. Pick up one thing. Read write analyse on that. Good luck.
|Krutika said: (Dec 6, 2012)|
|My two years of experience in a Finance Company says that after having pursued the highly valuable degree like MBA, we MBA's are not treated at par with Chartered Accountants. Though MBA's give tough competition to the Chartered Accountants, they are mistreated in the Corporate. The reason is the simple fact that there are numerous known-unknown universities offering the MBA degree but there is just one standardized institute to offer CA degree. In India, if we really want to be successful MBA's then we will have to standardized the MBA education. We need serious reform here just now. And this is what's the fact according to me. Thank you.|
|Kanaka Chandra Rao said: (Nov 20, 2012)|
|Hi. Friends thanking you to give chance to me to share some views.
Coming to my point of view now a days MBA are requires many companies to done business operation because companies are know post graduation students are has some knowledge about companies motto to run business in a successive manner & also know the targets of the companies So MBA are place an important role in present marketing.
MBA is evergreen. Thank you.
|Madhuri Pyla said: (Nov 14, 2012)|
|Dear all, In this discussion I would like to share my views on the topic. Every successful man is not a highly qualified man and every unsuccessful man is not an illiterate. To succeed in life one should have the guts to face the failure because when you aim at success, the fear of failure comes into your mind. And this fear doesn't allow you to learn/try new things. Each time you fail, you will learn a lesson out of it. That lesson is important in your life not the MBA degree. There are many MBA's who were left unemployed just because they lack the life skills. And also there are many successful people even without an MBA just by nurturing their life skills.|
|Pankaj Kumar said: (Nov 11, 2012)|
|Yes MBA has become necessary to succeed in life as it helps an individual to learn some managerial activity and provide an opportunity to become a successful manager.
So that an individual can brighten his future.
|Feby said: (Nov 6, 2012)|
|MBA is professional business world but it is not the last word for the success.
Even though MBA graduates are under referenced than any professional courses. But the issue is MBA holders can't develop their career as per there qualification.
Then the another issue is minor of the MBA holders are not at all satisfied with there current positions and thus create equality in work life.
|Richa said: (Oct 25, 2012)|
|Hi all, in my perception MBA is good for developing your personality and makes your thinking broad. Since there is all about to get profit in all aspects, having management skills tells better how to grasp the profit. Right so its really beneficial to have an MBA.|
|Dayanand said: (Oct 3, 2012)|
|Success is depend upon us. How we will perform. I think MBA help to achieve our goal, life is journey. MBA student think differently rather than other he got knowledge how to overcome obstacles and how to get success.|
|Rajanandhini said: (Sep 27, 2012)|
|Yeah according to my point of view, MBA is highly useful for the young minds who are interested in starting up their business. It teaches the students how to over come the hurdles and obstacles during crisis situation. Thus MBA will serve as a very powerful and helpful tool for a person who has an idea to start up the new business. All the best dudes !|
