Why should I study an MBA if I am an IT Professional

Why should I study an MBA if I am an IT Professional


A little more than 1 year ago I began to study a Master’s degree in Administration (MBA) in person. The closest course to this was a project management graduate where we reviewed HR management and costs.

Pursuing the study of a Master in Business Administration

I had read excerpts from “The Personal MBA,” a book where Josh Kaufman suggests “Skip business school, educate yourself” but knew that reading a set of business books would not lead me to a next level of understanding and Business vision, despite being convinced of the importance of self-education.

That’s why I decided to embark on an executive MBA (which, unlike an MBA, covers less subjects but in a deeper way and in a more flexible schedule for those who work and lead a family)

My experience about finishing a Master Business Administration

After the weekend, I finished the last class of my MBA postgraduate and after having walked this course, I can assure not to have been wrong, due to 3 reasons:

  1. A very enriching experience at a Professional Level.

Beyond having visited in depth topics that I previously only knew by name such as digital marketing, corporate finance or leading companies in a global context, I feel that with my International Business Administration studied I now understand the role of technology in business and society, as can this generate more value, and with this knowledge base to investigate in greater depth in favour of undertaking or improving current management.

  1. The Real Meaning of Synergy.

Because of the synergies generated by interacting face-to-face with people from different specialties, years of work experience and concerns, but who seek the same thing in the end: to grow professionally, to expand their networking and of course, to make good friends.

Without forgetting to the teachers, a few cracks in their subjects, which invited to the reflection of how to apply the provided tools in the own labour scope and to continue learning through them and the network of ex-students (alumni) of which you come to be part once the program is completed.

  1. A Paradigm Shift of Thinking.

Finally, because you are invited to grow personally, through the implementation of a paradigm shift that Stephen Covey mentions in his 4th habit, Think Win-Win: The Abundance Mentality, the paradigm that there is plenty out there for everybody. A step where you got in a new level, almost like a part of an Executive Business Administration.

There are many ways to create value: being an entrepreneur, entrepreneur, consultant and while you are more oriented-to-serve, you will have more satisfactions at the end, not only economic ones, also those that make you proud of having invested your time to improve your Family, your community and why not your country.
