How important is work experience for doing MBA?

As a student pursuing graduation, your mind juggles with various situations, for which is required the correct balance of critical thinking and deep understanding.

The choice of career path, after graduation, is the biggest hill to cross. As an undergraduate, two major choices come across one, the path to acquire MBA immediately after graduation and secondly to join a corporate job for experience and eventually acquire the master degree, which would enhance your future career prospects.

To understand the practicality of the career paths in real terms, have a look towards these two case studies:

Candidate one is looking forward to being hired for a managerial post. He holds the degree of MBA in his job resume provides the required leeway showcasing his abilities and ready to be explored by the corporate world.

On the other hand, the second candidate has a two-year field /job experience and holds the MBA degree. His resume showcases his abilities and in addition, presents him to be ‘market – ready ’.

If it is looked upon from the angle of a job recruiter, his preference would be the second candidate undoubtedly, and the salary package would be beneficially negotiable. This is because of a very obvious reason that a company can be best managed by the person, who understands how a company works.

A working experience is not only a job, it is an asset. An asset to your confidence, an edge over nonworking professionals, a promise for a higher salary package, and all of these qualities will be best utilized when you qualify the GMAT exam to pursue MBA after your job experience.

As Marie Forleo quotes,” The key to success is to start before you’re ready”. And there is no day, better than today to start a journey that your future will thank you for.
