How Life Changes After An MBA

You graduated. Ah, time to kick back and relax. Now, you can read for pleasure. And your travels won’t involve a site visit or business dinner. Forget networking – you have a job. Chances are, you’re not reporting until Labor Day anyway.

Now that you hold an MBA, your life is about to change. That’s the premise of Nishi Jain’s latest post in MensXP, which explores the good and bad (depending on your viewpoint) of being a new MBA. Here is a sample of what you can expect:

You Are Expected To Pay Up At Every Dinner Party

“…Congratulations, you have arrived. An MBA sure brings a higher package, but the world doesn’t give a fuck about the unbelievable loan you took from the bank and are still paying the EMIs. And when it comes to expectations, family and relatives are not far behind.”

Your Boss Expects You To Be A Magician

“…the downside of the high demand and higher package is that you are expected to be a magician and turn the fate of the company overnight. There’s nothing a hotshot MBA can’t do. Even if the company is going down in the pits, you are expected to just wave your magic wand and get it back on track. Chart out ground-breaking strategies, impress the clients, basically sweep everybody off their feet with your genius. Not everybody has the patience to see that long-term strategies and ideas take time to show results.”

Your Friends Who Did Not Go For An MBA Have More Experience Than You

“Your friends are well into the industry and know it like the back of their hands. For you, it’s like starting from scratch again. You have to understand the industry as a fresher. And the irony that you are at a high post and expected to deliver results overnight makes it all the more challenging.”

The Ones Who Didn’t/Couldn’t Do An MBA Start Envying You

“If an MBA earned you coquettish glances from girls in your neighbourhood, or a barrage of ‘rishtas’, it also brought in envious vibes from all the men who couldn’t do it. That close friend in college who didn’t clear CAT, or that colleague whose salary is half than yours; don’t be surprised if you don’t find them too friendly.”
