Career Path one can pursue with Global MBA in 2022
– by Apoorva Desai
MBA is still in great demand in the corporate world. While some may disagree with the times of the pandemic, the skills that MBAs bring are a different factor in today’s times.
While companies are still dealing with the pressures of the pandemic, along with the used ‘VUCA’ world, they require management graduates for many of their critical business functions.
We live in uncertain times. It is therefore imperative that today’s MBAs are culturally agile and adaptable and can provide value from day one. Corporates are looking for MBAs that hit the ground running. There was never a greater need than today to look for an MBA trained to handle crisis, make quick and efficient decisions, lead teams etc.
A Global MBA helps to develop a distinctly global outlook, broadens one’s horizons in terms of learning what best practices are deployed around the world, helps in understanding cultural sensitivity. An exclusive Global MBA program has been designed and curated keeping in mind the ground realities of the real world with a curriculum that is relevant and helps students to do strategic thinking in today’s times. A program where diverse groups of people come together, consider various macro and microeconomic variables, derive logically, and propose solutions that are feasible and viable, that is the beauty of the Global MBA program.
Students can choose to take up roles offered by multinational corporations or choose to work for India based companies with international clients. There are also various leadership programs that allow Global MBA participants to work in India as well as abroad for a few months. These programs are extremely useful for MBA students who want to have the best of both worlds.
