India being a developing nation has a great scope and demand for ambitious students. The education system of the country has permitted the students to choose from a wide range of career options. But, among the many higher education courses available for students to choose, the Master of Business Administration course is a course that is highly hyped for overloading salaries and fancy corporate lifestyle.
As India is making a strong presence in the international arena, there has been a sudden demand for well-qualified MBA degree holders to look after establishment and also for starting up their own business and like guys, girls are also attracted by the shine of this course. It is true that it is a challenging career course to choose. But, like boys, most of the girls are not prepared to face the challenges this degree can bring to their professional and personal life. This is a PG course that needs a lot of focus and determination, in such a way that degree holders can fulfill the responsibilities in the workplace. Before choosing this course for higher education, it is highly important that girls should be aware of certain things and here are the details for their knowledge and understanding:
It is a nutty cakewalk course:
This is a professional program as most of us know, but not only after the course completion; most of the B-schools require that students should follow utmost professionalism during the course as well. The course is not a cakewalk and it needs complete attention and students should have multitasking ability. The two years programme will prepare the candidate for the challenges coming in the way of job.
Even though, the first few days of the course might seem to be enjoyable, the time schedule will become extremely tight. Classes, festivals, weekly tests, presentations and case studies everything will go side-by-side along with examinations and campus placements in the final year. There is no escape, but to face it and it will create a lot of stress. But, the hard work will bring fruitful results in the future without any doubt whatsoever, if the girl turns out to be a career lady.
The corporate drama:
This course is highly hyped for the lifestyle it provides to the course-takers. But, the fact to remember is that corporate is full of drama to a certain extent. Many a time, people from outside view only the party culture of this world, but it is actually a stressful niche, where the professional will have to face long working hours, chasing deadlines, targets and the list of responsibilities will go on and on. All, these things do not suit most of the girls, particularly Indian girls, who come from cultural background. Of course, promotions, appraisals, parties and pay hikes come hand-in-hand for all the hard work, but the hardships associated with the career should never be forgotten.
Other factors to consider are the area of interest and return on investment should also be considered, particularly by girls before they choose this course.
