Bloomberg has surveyed corporate recruiters regarding what skills are lacking in current MBA graduates. According to the survey, industry experience is less important than analytical and communication skills. Collaboration is more important that risk taking and decision making. The article breaks out which MBA programs do the best job of teaching the most desired skills. If you’re considering an MBA, this article is a valuable resource. However, if you’re a manager who already has an MBA or does want the degree, it is very informative to think about what skills are most desired and how those skills are areas or strength or weakness. Career success begins with self-evaluation. Take some time to think about where you are strong and what skills you still need to develop.
