LEADERSHIP IS THE MOST IMPORTANT SKILL THAT YOU WILL LEARN ON AN MASTER PROGRAM
The key to understanding and appreciating the statement above is to ask the question, “What is the purpose of anMaster Program.” There will, naturally, be many conflicting ideas and responses as each Master Program is geared towards a different industry and has a different target demographic. This shouldn’t be too controversial as everybody who does an Master Program tends to hope to either work within the senior management of a company or to start their own company.There is one core competency that all senior managers and business founders must be able to demonstrate and this is leadership. Leadership is one of those intangible and personal skills which many people have without realising it and far more lack while pretending to display it. It is harder to teach than any of the other core competencies but it is the only one that all senior managers will need to have in their arsenal at all times when running a business. Without leadership you will always have a glass ceiling above you because the top jobs in an industry will not be appropriate for you.
Be positive and think big
Remember, you are privileged to have access to a high-level education without having to work at the same time. Make sure you expand as human being. Overcome your old prejudices and break new grounds. Acknowledge the fact that, as much as you are working hard to bridge your own gaps, other people are also doing so. We are all in the same boat. Help your colleague inside and outside class. Be passionate. Be generous.
There are tens of thousands of Master Program Candidates each year. It’s a big market. Your challenge is to make the most out of your entire Master Program experience, inside and outside class. Books and information are available to many people. Leadership skills are not. So roll up your sleeves and startworking on becoming a better leader.
One of the most important qualities of an effective leader is the ability to calmly assess a situation and solve problems under pressure. Throughout Master Program, you will have several opportunities to develop your problem-solving skills through experiential learning. Vision for leadership development places particular emphasis on the value of hands-on experience, and our Leadership Initiative will give you the chance to put your problem-solving skills to the test. Immersion case and venture capital investment competitions, as well as our domestic and global business projects, will hone your problem-solving skills in exercises similar to those you will encounter in your career.www.iibmindia.in
