Lessons to Learn from B-Schools

B-school is an opportunity that can significantly shape an individual's education and personality. Top B-schools have a good balance of both hard and soft skills. There are so many life changing lessons that one can learn from a top business school.

Some of the traits one imbibes from a B-school are:

Choosing the Right People: You come in contact with people of diverse opinions and thought processes. The interaction with the best minds from all over helps you learn from other people's experiences and ideas. 

Team Work: Business schools have a lot of group projects, presentations and case studies. Teamwork and collaboration is a critical proficiency to succeed at a business school. You realize that a business is not about yourself, but working in tandem with others to accomplish a common goal.

Information Driven Decisions: Decision-making is both an art and a science. While it is critical to gather data and information knowing when to make a call and when to bring in people and data into the discussion is an art. A degree from a top B-school teaches decision-making skills, that is vital and helps in taking well-informed decisions, which is very important when a high stake situation presents itself in the business world.

Value Proposition: To offer a compelling value proposition, one must understand customer needs and identify where their offering is ‘on par’ and how it is superior. Superiority could be cheaper/faster/more reliable, etc. Your insight into the market determines the success of your Endeavour.

Execution matters: “The difference between great ideas and a mediocre idea is execution.” The person who executes is just as important and fulfilling as the one who ideates. Change will not happen unless there’s someone pushing things along. Creativity isn’t just about how many new ideas you have, but also about how many new ways you can make them happen.
