Seeking your valuable advise :

just to keep this one on my home's wall I want a certificate in MBA. Because due to my service I can not join the college, even in part time also not getting adjusted, because the study for this course is huge one, I can not give that much time to do this course, but I have a craze in my mind to hold this digree. infact last time I searched the postal course in MBA but not found appropriately.

Can you guide me, what to do, or in your opinion only reading book is just sufficient to become of that level.

One of the hidden and not talked about benefits about having any degree is it shows you can apply yourself over a long period of time to one goal. It’s kind of like joining the Stick With It club.
How many times have you seen someone get a management position with a degree from a totally different area? Like someone that has an engineering degree becoming manager at a department store.
It attests to the quality of the individual. Lazy low life people normally don’t have degrees. If all you had to do was read a couple of books and pay a small fee most everyone would have one. That would lower the value of all degrees.

There is no short cut to getting a good degree.

Also shows your capacity of withstanding boredom, arrogant teachers, social discrimination, abuse of authority, cheerleaders, football bullies. Not to mention utterly unnecessary physical displacement, discomfort, poor infrastructure...

IŽd say thereŽnothing wrong with a good, quick, straight to the point, Internet course. A good 70% of the time spent in [the physical environment of] school has nothing to do with the pursuit of knowledge.

I'd like to know a cheap way to get this degree too.

My son is starting University of Toronto in the fall. He's pursuing an MBA in Business/Commerce. It'll cost around $80,000 for four years.

Nearly any office supply store these days have blank certificate papers in stock.

Find out what the certificate you want looks like and have at it with a page-layout program (Illustrator, Freehand, etc....)

The finished product will be just as valid and save you a few thousand from the "degree mills"!!!

You got my point, infact I intend to share the thoughts that how much a management courses become so much important today, worldwide there is a great boom in accomplishing this course. I think the Wharton like institutions are great one, they have maintained a great levels of education.

But for a common man the management education become more expensive, though there is a gurantee of placements in the reputed firms or so.

In case of someone thinks to start a business of marketing telescopes, astronomy related material etc, then how much this sort of course will be helpful in managing the things, because every management course teach the pupil(student) that kind of profession awareness very smartly.

I know plenty of lazy, low-lifes with advanced degrees.

Not to discredit the worthiness of such a degree, it seems to me, inspite of the proliferation of business degrees and highly-educated personnel filling the ranks of executive positions, the rate of business failure is pretty much the same as it has always been.

This I got from my files given to me by a colleague:

Five Minute Management Course

Lesson 1:
A man is getting into the shower
just as his wife is finishing up her shower, when the doorbell rings.
The wife quickly wraps herself in a towel and runs downstairs
When she opens the door, there stands Bob, the next-door neighbour.
Before she says a word, Bob says, 'I'll give you $800 to drop that towel.'
After thinking for a moment, the woman drops her towel and stands naked in front of Bob, after a few seconds, Bob hands her $800 and leaves.
The woman wraps back up in the towel and goes back upstairs.
When she gets to the bathroom, her husband asks, 'Who was that?'
'It was Bob the next door neighbour,' she replies.
'Great,' the husband says, 'did he say anything about the $800 he owes me?'

Moral of the story:
If you share critical information pertaining to credit and risk with your shareholders in time, you may be in a position to prevent avoidable exposure..


Lesson 2:
A sales rep, an administration clerk, and the manager
are walking to lunch when they find an antique oil lamp.
They rub it and a Genie comes out.
The Genie says, 'I'll give each of you just one wish.'
'Me first! Me first!' says the admin clerk. 'I want to be in the Bahamas , driving a speedboat, without a care in the world.'
Puff! She's gone.
'Me next! Me next!' says the sales rep. 'I want to be in Hawaii , relaxing on the beach with my personal masseuse, an endless supply of Pina Coladas and the love of my life.'
Puff! He's gone.
'OK, you're up,' the Genie says to the manager.
The manager says, 'I want those two back in the office after lunch.'
Moral of the story:
Always let your boss have the first say.


Lesson 3
An eagle was sitting on a tree resting, doing nothing.
A small rabbit saw the eagle and asked him, 'Can I also sit like you and do nothing?' The eagle answered: 'Sure, why not.'
So, the rabbit sat on the ground below the eagle and rested. All of a sudden, a fox appeared, jumped on the rabbit and ate it.
Moral of the story:
To be sitting and doing nothing, you must be sitting very, very high up.


Lesson 4
A turkey was chatting with a bull.
'I would love to be able to get to the top of that tree' sighed the turkey, 'but I haven't got the energy.'
'Well, why don't you nibble on some of my droppings?' replied the bull. They're packed with nutrients.'
The turkey pecked at a lump of dung, and found it actually gave him enough strength to reach the lowest branch of the tree.
The next day, after eating some more dung, he reached the second branch.
Finally after a fourth night, the turkey was proudly perched at the top of the tree.
He was promptly spotted by a farmer, who shot him out of the tree.
Moral of the story:
Bull Poop might get you to the top, but it won't keep you there..


Lesson 5
A little bird was flying south for the winter.
It was so cold the bird froze and fell to the ground into a large field.
While he was lying there, a cow came by and dropped some dung on him.
As the frozen bird lay there in the pile of cow dung, he began to realize how warm he was.
The dung was actually thawing him out!
He lay there all warm and happy, and soon began to sing for joy.
A passing cat heard the bird singing and came to investigate.
Following the sound, the cat discovered the bird under the pile of cow dung, and promptly dug him out and ate him.
Morals of the story:
(1) Not everyone who troubles you is your enemy.
(2) Not everyone who gets you out of trouble is your
friend.
(3) And when you're in deep trouble, it's best to keep
your mouth shut!

THUS ENDS OF THE FIVE MINUTE MANAGEMENT COURSE

Hope you learned and got the sense of humor out of it!

Allow me to counter the we-don't-need-no-steenking-degree and the I-know-stupid-people-with-degrees crowd. No matter what choices you make or what path you set upon, there will be distractors and naysayers. Ignore them. Give lots of deliberate thought to what you want, set your goals (intermediate as well as long term), and pursue them relentlessly. Be observant, be honest with yourself, and be willing to adjust as you go.

If one of your goals is just the paper, then no harm in getting it as cheaply as possible. If a degree from a matchbook serves your needs, by all means make it happen. If training of a more vocational nature is part of your path, go for it. A full-blown and well-rounded education isn't everybody's choice, but if it is an essential requirement for your desired future, then be prepared to spend some serious time at it. That is best accomplished by immersing yourself in a bona fide learning environment.

The different options each have their merits and their limitations. Know them before you waste time with a misinformed decision. And do not be influenced by the disgruntled person and their My-boss-has-a-degree-and-he's-a-jerk anecdote.

I have seen many MBA fellows who are doing jobs with a lower remunerations, when I asked him, what's the problem, he said, institution wise campus interviews differentiate the remuneration and selection for any related organization. But if he had that degree of a reputed and costly college, his campus might have limitless values.

Today, parents are expending a huge share of their remuneration on the children's education, and after having such highly professional qualificaton that pupil or say student who are hold, the job does not guarantees. place to place the importance may change as far as the relative trend is concern.
