By Rajesh Kamble, 2012 PT MBA graduate

 

During my first year going through the NIBMS MBA Part-Time program, I rapidly learned the vital role that     consistency played in enabling me achieve and maintain a good work.  Each semester presented its own unique challenges from taking a few dreaded core classes to joggling life outside of school. To face these challenges, there were three actions that I took to realize the consistency necessary to achieve and sustain a good work.

First, establish a steady routine. Determine the most  ideal time for you to study, play, sleep, run errands, work out, visit family, and so on. Be practical with yourself. For example, I was not a morning person and greatly valued my weekend by taking this Part-time valuable course and  took  weekend classes which started on Saturdays and Sundays.

  Second, set clear expectations with those that really matter. The reality is that a good portion of your week will be dedicated to work and school work including time for group meetings, studying, classes, homework, etc. So it is unrealistic to assume that you will have as much as time to commit to social and other activities. As a result, proactively communicate your routine to your family, close friends, and managers so they are aware of what to expect from you based on your commitments.

   Third, don’t forget to keep living life. Life goes on even while you are in school.  So don’t miss out on it. Maintain your hobbies.  Get a DVR to record and watch your shows on your schedule. Make time for special occasions.  Participate in diverse school events to meet new people which grow and expand your network. Plan a getaway. If you are too overwhelmed to coordinate one, take advantage of the study abroad programs offered at Smith.

  In summary, while in the NIBMS Part-Time MBA program, you can realize the consistency necessary to achieve and sustain a good work/life balance by establishing a steady routine, setting clear expectations with those that really matter, and not forgetting to keep living life even while in school.

Higher education enrolment is picking up across India. There are many B schools coming up in metro cities. Some of the niche programs specialized in Retail, Infrastructure, Piping Engineering Design are coming up compared to traditional MBA courses in Marketing, HR, Finance, IT management many...

MBA courses are also available with different duration 1 year, 2 year, 10 months and along with fee variability, there are some MBA courses with fees of 50,000 per yer to courses with Fees of Rs 550,000 per year. If you are confused for which course to go for Full Time, Part Time or Distance MBA, here is our analysis which might help you to select right course 

Stricture

Full Time MBA

Part Time MBA

Distance MBA

Time Commitment

Full time MBA Requires your complete commitment of 1 year in case of Executive MBA and 2 Year in case of Traditional MBA

Major advantage of Part Time MBA is you can continue your work and attend classes during weekends or evening on weekdays. Your job must not be of travelling nature if you wish you attend such course.

Most flexible option available. With distance MBA variety of specializations available. This course is useful only when you have some experience and you would not be able to attend classes of Full time or Part Time MBA

Recruiter’s Choice

Full time MBA is most preferred by recruiters or organizations

Part Time MBA can certainly provide you option of lateral promotion opportunities along with enhancement of skill set. As you are already working it becomes easier to apply skills. Recruiters look for either certificate from reputed university or niche course for part time MBA.

This is bit out of favour within recruiter community. But now many advance distance education courses coming with concept of online classroom with live interaction with professors and other students. With advancement of technology Distance MBA is going to gain favour from recruiter community.

Peer Learning

Full time MBA provides best option of peer learning. MBA is not all about text book knowledge but to develop prospective about particular business situation , understanding different cultures, sectors. You can learn most from your peers in addition to text book knowledge.

Part Time MBA can also provide peer learning opportunities if there is some group assignment, group research based learning options. You need to complete certain assignments in group which can help you to learn from the peer students.

Distance education’s major disadvantage is lack of peer learning. You miss opportunity of learning from other peer students, you miss chance to participate in discussions, group works. But this is compromise and flexible option where time commitment is lowest.

Fees

Generally Fees for Full time MBA is highest and you need to identify overall budget for it and you also need to consider total salary earning you will be missing due to 1/2 year commitment.

Part time MBA Fees is generally less than Full Time MBA option and you have advantage of continuing your salary income while studying.

There is great advantage of distance learning MBA as Fees are lowest compared to other options and if your budget is not high then distance MBA is best possible options for you.

1. Assume responsibility for your own, professional development. There is no one path that you must follow to develop a knowledge-worker mindset. MBA programs build a good foundation for developing the mindset; however, you will need additional skills, knowledge, and ongoing reinforcement to be a good knowledge worker. Self-assessment and self-development will be a necessity throughout your career.

2. Learn about and develop problem-solving and thinking skills. MBA programs usually assume that the curriculum develops problem-solving and thinking skills. Unfortunately, this theory is not the case. An excellent starting point for learning these skills is to find a good book that introduces problem-solving concepts and demonstrates their application. One that I recommend is Gerald F. Smith’s book, Quality Problem Solving. Even though the book was published in 1998, it provides an excellent entry into the world of problem solving and—more importantly—how to think about problems.

3. Practice developing multi-level task and problem statements. In this context, “multi-level” means industry-level, company-level, organizational-unit-level, work-unit-level, and individual-worker level. Determining a task for a company vs. determining a task for a work unit within a company requires different knowledge sets and understanding. Therefore, a good starting point is to ask the question, “How would this task differ if we were one level higher in the organization’s hierarchy?”

4. Read, read, and then read some more. There is much written about knowledge work and problem solving. Unfortunately, most undergraduate and graduate programs do not include the principles and practices of problem solving and knowledge work found in this body of literature. Accordingly, you must learn on your own. Reading is one way of learning new concepts and a good place to find knowledge work and problem solving articles and books is Harvard Business Publishing. A recent search of the Harvard Business Publishing academic website found 87 articles cross-referenced to 18 disciplines and 29 books or book chapters devoted to problem solving. For knowledge work, there were 141 articles and 59 books or book chapters.

5. Read outside of your discipline. While you will always need to keep current with your discipline, there is a risk of becoming insular in your thinking. If the only thinking skills you have relate to your discipline, then all tasks or problems look like discipline problems. Options for finding things to read outside of your discipline include Harvard Business ReviewSloan Management ReviewScientific America or picking a book from the Wall Street Journal’s list of Best-Selling Books.

6. Link or relate new concepts to concepts you know or to situationsin which you are involved. In other words, take ownership of the new concept. When reading an article, book, or attending a workshop, you should try relating the subject to something that you are dealing with or will deal with in the near future.

7. Observe how others approach task definition and problem solving. Observation is powerful if done properly. For example, during a project meeting, observe how the project leader deals with an issue. Then, ask yourself, “Is this the way I would deal with this issue?” If not, compare and contrast the approaches for use as a learning opportunity. In some cases, you may want to have a private conversation with the project leader to discuss the differences in approach.

8. Take advantage of the learning programs offered by your organization. Most organizations provide employees access to professional-development programs. All too often, employees only look for opportunities that relate directly to their functional area. Instead, look at opportunities that provide development in disciplines or subjects that do not relate to your functional area. Doing so can aid your perspective.

9. Become a risk taker. Volunteer for assignments that will challenge you to think differently. Doing the same thing the same way day in and day out requires little thought and you can become stagnant in your thinking.

10. Become a teacher and mentor to someone at work. Helping others to learn or reason through a problem is an excellent way to enhance your thinking skills. The conversations, impromptu questions, and responses often create opportunities to learn from each other.

Determining the task or the problem takes time and effort. More often than not, adding clarity to either a task or problem requires a different lens, a different vocabulary, and a different way of thinking. While thinking is hard work, learning to think is even more difficult. However, while learning to think differently is difficult, I believe that it is the most important thing an MBA student or a new MBA graduate can accomplish. Moreover, thinking is the key to knowledge work.

Specialization in field of interest: MBA programs are offered with multiple specializations in some of the topmost fields of the world. Professionals with rich experience in a particular industry are advised to go for an MBA with the same specialization.

There exist part-time MBA programs as well as full-time programs to choose from. Students who have just completed their graduation are strongly recommended to go for full-time courses from colleges. However, for those with a good amount of work experience, compromising with job for the purpose of studies might not be a good decision. Part-time or online programs are recommended for such aspirants.

Reputed institution: The institution that you choose for pursuing the program plays an important role. Students are requested to choose a college wisely before applying for a program. Certified colleges with approval from UGC, AICTE, DEC, etc help you gain better job opportunities as these degrees are globally recognized. They also allow you to enroll for further studies such as Ph.D after completing the MBA.
