Teaching here is innovative
Contrary to popular opinion, an MBA is not a ticket to senior management. What it does give you, however, is an increased knowledge-base and more networking opportunities. These are the two main reasons that propelled me to return to the classroom after having worked for two years at Directi, a web services firm in Mumbai. It was an easy transition from full-time work to a student, mostly because of FMS’s informal style of teaching. Students are encouraged to think independently and come up with out-of-the box ideas. This helps make the adjustment easier.
I do not regard the two years at the workplace a waste of time but rather as an investment because those years taught me the value of professionalism, maturity and work discipline.
