This is an ideal opportunity for anyone who has recently completed a Masters’ degree, especially an MBA, to become really useful, really quickly. In fact your boss expects you to!
You see I’ve been teaching at Universities and Business Colleges for over 10 years and I've concluded that we (the academic community in most parts of the world) aren’t doing a good enough job in preparing graduating students for ‘the real world’ of business. Typically, you graduate after 2/3 years of fairly intensive work which has comprehensive practical elements of course, but fundamentally there is still a big gap between structured course material and the actual business environment that students want to inhabit, contribute to and benefit from as soon as they can.
Indeed, I would say that I have met only 1 MBA Graduate who, upon graduation, really has achieved MASTERY of business administration, no matter what the certificate may say. Indeed, it can lead to rapid disillusionment and even failure in any enterprise they may try to grow or be a part of.
The original intention of MBA degrees was that they be undertaken by people who have graduated with one or two degrees and have been working in an executive role for at least 5 years. This contrasts with other professions such as medicine, law and accountancy where it is mandated that a period of internship be served before being fully admitted to their chosen profession.
So, what to do about it?
Well, we are soon to offer a course of intensive coaching, unrelated to any College or University. It will be designed to bridge the gap I have described above and prepare students properly for the transition to business life, with a much-enhanced prospect of success. See below for details of how it will work.
The course will be offered twice per year to small groups of no more than 10 students.
It will be tailored as much as possible to your specific needs and expectations, indeed YOU may well help tailor it to suit. It can be especially useful for graduates working in developing economies, many of which provide incentives to budding entrepreneurs, and can be delivered locally.
It will be intensive (maybe 6 weeks, 6 days per week, 10 hours per day plus reflection time.
