MBA is not necessary to succeed in life. As my other friends have written the same thing but I would like to add something more on this topic.

MBA is a professional degree just like other degrees. MBA's are very disciplined, well mannered, have core knowledge about business and his or her taken specialization subject. It is just a platform where an individual can showcase his talents. If I conclude this then my answer is NO, MBA is not necessary to succeed in life. Success comes from hard-working, dedication and a little bit of luck or fate.

Thank you.

Hi everyone.

In my opinion, an MBA is a good course for career enhancement. It helps the person to enrich their personality, all-round growth but in spite that the MBA is not only things through which we get success in life. To get success in life there is my opportunity prevailing in the environment we need to grab that opportunity. So the MBA is the best career opportunity but in spite that it is not too necessary to get success in life. If we work hard for our own livelihood. We can get success in life. So the point is that " To get success in life there is not necessary to do an MBA, necessary to do hard word for achieving goal ".

In my point of view, success is not a destination but a journey. Definition of success may vary from person to person but in general term success is accomplishment of aim or goal, whatever goal he wants to achieve it may be safety, social need, psychological need or something else.

Coming to the point, MBA is necessary to succeed in life. My answer is no because having MBA will only the way to run smoothly a company but again it is not only one way to know how of company should run. A company may run by any person but an MBA degree holder gives a better result then any casual person, but again he can't give surety of success of a company then how can we assume that it is necessary to succeed in life. Yes, of course the way of thinking and personality, problem solving attitude of MBA degree holder what he have gained help them to achieve success in life but it is not necessary for success.

Hi everyone.

I want to explain some important points related to this topic. For me, the MBA will grow carrier opportunities and gives higher earing and give platforms to expand business ideas in various business areas. But it is not a part of success in life Because many people don't have an MBA degree but they are successful in their life. MBA is not a solution to success. It is the key to grow business and expand the thought process which will boost business areas. Many people are a success without an MBA.

So everything depends on the dedication and hard work in any field. Success can be achieved in many ways with dedication. The most important things are If anyone earning well, for example, A autorickshaw driver is earing well and fulfill all the needs of their family and individual. So he is a successful person in society. Finally, I will finish this Discussion after giving a conclusion. The conclusion from my side MBA and other courses is not a key to success. Success in life is to maintain and learn skills and develop a strategy to earn good money.

Mba is a master degree it is important because nowadays most of the company preferred MBA people.

MBA, being a master's degree gives you an edge over others in not only the field that you are in but also in the managerial as well as in leadership skills.

-Most of the organizations prefer an post graduate degree for the employees working in their organization or while hiring a new employee.

-With a number of multi " national companies coming into the picture, an MBA degree helps them attracting more remuneration as compared to a graduate employee.

-An MBA or any post graduate candidate has more chances of promotion and growth at his workplace.

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.

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.

Hi Everyone,

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Hi all.

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.

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.

Dear friends.

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.

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.

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.

Hi Friends,

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.

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.
