Why MicroMBAskills?

Main aim:
The cost of  Business Education should be less than the cost of the MBA application!

Decades ago, soon after my graduation, I was crazy to do MBA but I could not

do so for many reasons, instead I went to work. My friends enrolled into MBA

after tough entrance exam and other selection procedures. After their MBA

(with high grades), they attended many interviews, but almost all of them

took the job of non-MBAs, doing some insignificant work! This was quizzical

to me at that point in time.

Let us come back to the present day, wherein the situation hasn’t changed

much, especially in cases of MBA courses other than those offered by top tier

business schools. So, where is the exact problem? Is it before MBA, after MBA

or during MBA? I kept analysing these until I got some clarity on the situation

– the problems and the probable solutions.

Reading about business was my hobby, for more than 25 years. My hobby

became my passion and that, along with my perception of the current scenario

and my entrepreneurial experience, has led me to write this management

book that will suit all stages of a management profession -‘before MBA’, ‘after

MBA’ and ‘during MBA’.

This book is based on my dreams to deliver a solution for quality MBA.

 My first set of dreams: ‘Before MBA’

The syllabus for entrance test should be more of case study based approach

rather than mathematics and quantitative analysis. Screening should be based on the ability to integrate right and left brain, right from the MBA entrance level.

During group discussions, priority should be given to the students who

speak more logically and about their brand knowledge, than their command

over English.

In some personal interviews, the candidates are expected to answer in

nanoseconds (as if they are warplane pilots ejecting from the cockpit before

it crashes!). Speed is certainly an important factor in the corporate world but

not essential during MBA admissions.

My second set of dreams: ‘During MBA’

During the course, it is disappointing to see that the students are

still focussing on the text books covering the syllabus and notes from their

professors. Our teaching system and methods should be changed drastically.

First of all, the professors should stop dictating notes in the management

class and they should bring business dailies or magazines to the class to

regularly discuss about the current management scenario.

Though many professors are intelligent, they are forced to follow the

system. Initiatives such as intercollegiate quiz events or seminars should be

conducted exclusively for the professors too, to enrich their knowledge in the

current industry trends. Best faculties could be recognised and honoured

on such occasions. Entrepreneurs and business leaders should be frequently

invited as Guest speakers.

Films based on business biographies and leadership strategies should be

frequently screened and debated.

 My third set of dreams – ‘After MBA’

Many MBA graduates never continue to read about the evolving Businesses.

The last time they would have ‘read’ about business or management, would

have been those few minutes before their last exam, near the exam hall! This

education system is short-memory based and that’s the reason it should be


Employers should give priority to MBA graduates who are

knowledgeable and updated with the latest market trends.

Whether the MBA graduate is an employee or an entrepreneur, one should

be willing to be a lifelong student.
