Why Power Is More Important Than Money
Are MBAs more interested in power or money?
Some might consider this a silly question. After all, doesn’t one lead to the other? Yet, far too many aspiring MBAs and business school graduates focus on the compensation they will get—rather than the opportunities that can lead to a position of great power. They peruse the starting salary and bonus numbers at the top schools and often factor those rates of return into their decisions. It’s a mistake.
