|I know, it may not make sense going to school without thinking about your grades. Unfortunately, it is the very truth. I’ve been working hard for my marks so far and I always try to improve myself at any levels. As you can see, I am a highly competitive person. While doing my bachelor, I used to consider grades as a measure of my performance. This could not be further from the truth in the case of a MBA. I realized that last week when we received our first marks.|
|The result does not matterYep, you read it right, the official result of your labour; your presentation, your assignments or any other projects are not part of the main purpose of the MBA. I realized that when I noticed that most people who presented so far (no matter if they were amazing, good or okay) received about the same mark. It was within B+ and A. It shows that the teacher cares more about the effort you put in the presentation than the actual results. As a matter of fact, the qualify of the presentations were not equally distributed but their marks were.
What really matters
As I mentioned previously, as long as you are able to prove that you made a decent effort producing your reports, you will end-up with a good grade. However, after having lunch with my team mates (who have much longer work experience than I do), I understood that you are not getting much from an A or an A+. What really matters is what you have learned while you were doing your researches and writing your assignments. The good old bachelors habit to write what the teacher wants to read in order to get good results are no longer valid.
Do it for yourself
As one of my colleagues says: “I don’t care about my marks, what I do care about is how I can use what I learn in my life and at work”. While doing your researches, you will become in a better position to assess the previous success and failure of many companies and individuals. I believe that we can learn so much things by looking at what others have done in the past. As I previously mentioned in my last MBA posts, I just got access to 315 years of experience in my class. This is in addition to all the theories and concepts that I am learning in class.
From now on, I will change my approach to the MBA and I will try to learn as much as possible from my readings and my conversations with my peers. I know that if I work hard enough to assimilate others’ experience and the teacher’s theory, I will definitely end-up with good marks. However, this time, I will really learn something. After all, who cares if you had a MBA with honours or not, it is still showing on your business card 😉
