An MBA programmer especially from a leading international institution, teaches you many marvelous things, but most importantly, it teaches you to learn to be an inquisitive student from life. The programmer teaches you not only to systematically analyst and gain mastery over, to the extent possible, the chaos and complexities that surround business situations but also to make the most optimal decision in the face of risks that cannot be eliminated. It is indeed a noble calling, and those who emerge from the programmer are, without doubt, more effective managers and leaders. No wonder then that every year, hundreds of thousands of hopeful aspirants from across the globe apply to the hallowed institutions of business education. Limited supply and ample demand make for intense competition, and only a fraction of those who apply get in. Clearly, the most talented of the applicants have a better chance to make it but the best prepared applicants have a better chance to make it, but the best prepared applicants  can and do dramatically swing the odds in their favor, and win at this brutally competitive game.

In October last year, i had the privilege of being the alumni speaker at the Graduate School of Business admission conference at the magnificent ballroom. Most of the questions went along expected lines but there was one that i found rather provocative but quite relevant. It went somewhat like this, What chance does a normal person like me, Who is not an Graduate have of getting into one of the top five business schools? The question was greeted with a fair amount of good-natures and polite laughter, not in the least, I suspect, because the vast majority of the aspirants in the room were indeed graduates. If you too dear reader, are an Distance learning mba program then let me assure you that you have a clear cause for joy. Even though the MBA admission process change in the profiles of employers with the entry of technology companies, start up firms and non-profit organizations. A significant number of graduates are also venturing out their own business plans funded by a stream of venture capitalists. MBAs are also being hired by government bodies to manage their operations efficiently and sometimes to even manage the election process. The overall mix of employers varies from year to year, depending upon the state of the industry concerned, with the major share of hires still taken up by the financial services and consulting firms.
