MBA - Master of Business Administration really means to manage and Organize things in better manner than anyone else. So in MBA we can learn a strip of Subjects and The Efficiency of it. But,at the end of the day it matters how we deal with things? So,to discuss that do we really need a MBA to be an Entrepreneur? have its Pros and Cons ....

MBA is Completely Different from Entrepreneurship, We can say that MBA is a Part of Entrepreneurship . Entrepreneurship is More than that of MBA.And,to be frank both are not Comparable at all.If we get a problem in an Organization then the approach of a Manager and Entrepreneur are different,which are not comparable. Both work in a different manner and Solve the issues in different approach . So at the end of the day the solution of the problem is there. So whether it is a MBA or Entrepreneur the problem gets solved .

The way they think,They manage ,the decisions they take,the Idea generation,dealing or presentation with other people is completely different. So,An MBA graduate takes Specialization in one category or in Micro Specialization,But where as entrepreneur needs to take care of all the things,its a jack of all the things. where entrepreneur needs to catch all the sense of finance,HR, Operations last but not least Sales and marketing. But,Manager can take care only one division or two . So,there is a difference between them.

So,to start a Business there is no need of an MBA . Everybody who has the Idea of the Market and Experience can establish a Business. Those who ever have the Brand image or already working with the same kind of business then there is no problem of launching own business.
But, after one year there is a necessity of knowing or gaining the knowledge of MBA.we can employee any one for managing things but here we need to think of three things . That may be Effectiveness,Trust,Money. That may be if the entrepreneur is working him self then there will be effectiveness as he knows his in and out of business. he cannot trust on any one suddenly but he can mange him self if he is an MBA.if he can do the work or Knows the work i.e if he has the idea then there is no problem having an employee to work the in and out of business,otherwise the employee can spill you out. So,it is better to have an MBA if you need to be an Entrepreneur.

In MBA B-schools teach the way and approach of solving the problems by working on case studies . And there is always a way to take decision it may be intuitive or logical. taking a decision in intuitive manner will not work in business ,so to have a logical thinking and effectiveness in business MBA can help you out.

So,to be an entrepreneur there is no necessity of MBA degree,but having an MBA is a great advantage to manage the business in an effective manner. End of the day reaching the Profit of the business is really Important. So to conclude it "An MBA Degree will really help to become an Entrepreneur".

I joined MBA after 5+ years of work in a top Indian company, in nothing other than an IIM. But my personal opinion was the pressure of hard grill in the couse, the comaprative grading scare, superfluous flab of junk knowledge in the courses while missing the main topics totally or partially formed a total of MBA course. I felt then and even now after another 15 years in Industry in India and abroad- what you learn is only to act smart in competition in a given system rather than anything business. The specialised courses lack the treament of what "should be done" in an authentic and lucid manner. The case studies seek your personal judgements and you are graded according to the professor's understanding of the subject, without any actual aspects of what is the most correct approach! The basic unnecessary courses in humanities, sociology, history, mathematics and staistics and even some silly computer program course take 60% of your time in the institute and make you feel so insecure gradewise that you loose out interest in the course itself and feel like getting rid of the place as best as possible! The professors are highly academic, had no or very little exposure to the industry and live an theoretical world. On the contrary the students are interested only in grades and a specific "target co. job". Unlike engineering courses, students are left in a lurch with confusion, at the end as an MBA.

MBA is just a waste of 2 years of prime youth. Better, learn in practice with a private entrepreneur in his starting years for a few years, and then start on your own while reading a wide range of books and journals to enhance your knowledge. Try out your own small venture initially and then go on expanding. The route is not at all through a gruesome campus that leads you to peanuts for the price of gold! R Kumar 2010-03-06 00:41:06 24
