Go Business: This MBA
People have said a lot of things about me over the course of my life. The most popular things were stupid and crazy. They got the stupid part wrong, and I put all my crazy into my short horror stories.
An MBA is absolutely EXCELLENT. The reason why one would get an MBA is because the of the obvious reasons, it makes you much more business savvy and ready to control the most crucial aspects of a business, which is actually ALL aspects of a business.
Believe it or not, courtesy of UNCC and Ashford University's Forbes School of Business, this will make me the very best Geographer and Dragon-ness I know how to be.
Geography ws a great starting point.
The education involved the training that led to all those classes involving visiting actual places to develop research reports, maps, and present and discuss my projects in front of my countless freaking PowerPoints; thanks UNCC.
And then there was there was the Political Science education, thanks again UNCC, Six Sigma TQM training from South Piedmont Community, and of course, an MBA with Project and Environmental Management Specializations.
There is no part of the government or any entity that can say that I cannot handle any project that I go after. They could say my administrative EXPERIENCE is lacking because of the lack of an internship.
However, I have given companies countless work for free over several months. If that's not an internship, I don't know what is.
The FIRST reason for this post is to reiterate the fact that, of course, the MBA is not for the weak. But also, you NEED an MBA.
This business education consists of every single component needed to run a business, how important it is, why it is important, improving upon it, and the importance of finding a great accountant.
Accounting and Finance is grueling if you are not a math person. I am not a math person.
You need the in-depth papers that will show that you understand management and business theories independently when it comes to the knowledge that one must have when running a business.
If you are going to RUN your own thing, you NEED an MBA. If you're going to APPLY for grant and RUN that thing; you NEED an MBA...
The MBA is not necessarily about running somebody else's business for them. It is often obtained so most people can run their own business.
I have to put this out there because it is a very popular belief of companies that he MBA is for their business. It isn't.. As soon as a person that has an MBA applies to work for a company, the first thing that MOST HR Personnel think is that the applicant wants to run the company.
Some often think we are appyling to their company for a leadership position. No, no way.
Some MBAs may, but only for those Fortune 500 companies that offer things like Investment Banking or Global Operations Management, however, not usually for an average company.
Second, the MBA is for the ones who want to be of service to the economy in products or services and jobs. Of course, the plan is to run your own company just not all by yourself. There's that lingering word stupid again. It is also to sustain a company and contribute to the existence of the American Dream.
Last, having the MBA is important in showing that you have the capacity to run a company, to handle your goals and objectives, to show that you are a hard-worker, to show you have no problem with understanding and developing ideas, plans, and strategies for all the challenges that may befall you while running a company.
You get all this behind you when you get an MBA, and don't you dare let anyone tell you that it is worthless.
Education is only WORTHLESS to the FOOL.
So to all the MBAs, develop, create, grow, sustain, promote, become a GOOD dragon, do it all and do it excellently. Let nothing hinder you nor drive you away from what you need and want to give or provide.
I would say the world is yours, but somebody may compare you to a gangster movie and ruin your whole image for nothing.
However, I do think the world can be run by you.
