Anyways, so here I am another MBA aspirant who is scanning through universities the world over, and trying to figure where to shoot his application. I mean, should I really think of Harvard, Yale or LSB?? Or should I just settle for some other school?? The ones back in India... it's so tough getting there too!! The IIMs.. is so hard to crack.. add to the woe list ISB. And the list is so long. Figuring out the intricacies of CAT and GMAT!! Sheesh... it's all so much work.
But, at times I wonder will an MBA degree really make a manager out of you?? or rather the school? Maybe they can, else they wouldn't have enjoyed the status they enjoy today!! But do they really make you the artisan that you are supposed to be?? The primary principles though explained in theory are they all masters in it?? So, why the managers so different?? What is it that the schools despite talking about it fail to teach effectively??
The 3 primary principles of management is : To envision, to strategise, to execute. Now I can talk on these three at length. What their importance is? Where they are important? But then, am I experienced enough to write so much?? I guess not. All I can say is that, these principles are applicable in all spheres of our life should we want a life where we can look back and say - "My endeavour was successful." And so, I shall ask you to read this article written by Sudhakar Ram, an alumni of IIM, Calcutta.. class of 1982 : The craft of effective management.
Go ahead read it and tell me, is management then really taught in those hallowed walls or on the streets, in the real world??
