Dear Savvio ji,
Your question, do only MBA qualified become successful ...... ?
Some months back I read one article on Top CEOs in india with no B-School Qualification. I tried to brows it but could not find it. I am sure I can share it with you in couple of days.
There are many successful CEOs / Business tycoons who drooped out in HS or in College. Few names can be quoted. They are : Bill Gates - Microsoft, Charles Culpeper - Coco Cola, Dov Charney - American Apparel, Henry Ford - Ford Motor, Llary Elison - Oracle Software, Ray Kroc - McDonald, Steve Jobs - Apple, Michael Dell - Dell Inc. and many more.
To be successful businessman or business manager, one should have positive attitude, business attitude, learning attitude and wining attitude. One should have 2D i.e. Desire and Dedication.
Todays B-Schools will be a different subject.

Dear Savvio, I do agree with both Akanoray and Skhadir. I feel that MBA should be preferred rather required. Moreover, to gain COMPETENCY skills and experience are the required attributes.

Dear Savvio,

Most of us mistake learning and qualification are synonyms. Acquiring qualification does not necessarily imply learning. Learning is a continuous process and depends on one's attitude. There a number of examples learned men and women with out acquiring any qualification. People like Dirubai Amabani struggled hard to make Reliance Industries empire where qualified people served him for a price. It is ultimately one's attitude, skills and the hard work they put in which is unique and not taught in any university decides the success.

Here is a humorous article I have received some time back which may help us to understand the difference between Qualification and intelligence.

Story of a Cowboy

A cowboy named Mark was overseeing his herd in a remote mountainous pasture in California when suddenly a brand-new BMW advanced toward him out of a cloud of dust.

The driver, a young man in a Brioni suit, Gucci shoes, RayBan sunglasses and YSL tie, leaned out the window and asked the cowboy, “If I tell you exactly how many cows and calves you have in your herd, Will you give me a calf?”

Mark looks at the man, then looks at his peacefully grazing herd and calmly answers, “Sure, Why not?”

The man parks his car, whips out his Dell notebook computer, connects it to his iPhone, and surfs to a NASA page on the Internet, where he calls up a GPS satellite to get an exact fix on his location, which he then feeds to another NASA satellite that scans the area in an ultra-high-resolution photo.

The young man then opens the digital photo in Adobe Photoshop and exports it to an image processing facility in Hamburg , Germany. Within seconds, he receives an email on his iPhone that the image has been processed and the data stored. He then accesses an MS-SQL database through an ODBC connected Excel spreadsheet with email on his iPhone and, after a few minutes, receives a response.

Finally, he prints out a full-color, 150-page report on his hi-tech, miniaturized HP LaserJet printer, turns to the cowboy and says, “You have exactly 1,586 cows and calves.”

“That’s right. Well, I guess you can take one of my calves,” says Mark.

He watches the young man select one of the animals and looks on with amusement as the young man stuffs it into the trunk of his car.

Then Mark says to the young man, “Hey, if I can tell you exactly what your business is, will you give me back my calf?”

The young man thinks about it for a second and then says, “Okay, why not?”

“You’re a Consultant”, says Mark.

“Wow! That’s correct,” says the man, “but how did you guess that?”

“No guessing required.” answered the cowboy. “You showed up here even though nobody called you; you want to get paid for an answer I already knew, to a question I never asked. You used thousands of dollars worth of equipment trying to show me how much smarter you are than I am; and you don’t know a thing about how working people make a living – or about cows, for that matter. This is a herd of sheep. ….

Now give me back my dog.

Moral: All Qualified are not intelligent and an intelligent not necessarily be qualified.

Dear Savvio,

Hope your weekend was Great!!

There is a proverb in English.

if you give value to something , something will come to your life.

Ex: if you give value to friend, friend will come to your life.

same thing with MBA, there are approx 1+ Lakh Students are coming out of colleges yearly with certificates and hardly any works on Skills that they learnt during Business intelligence, backward integration, MIS, motivation, team building,analytics, etc...

but a person with good work exposure and learning will be a better Manager compare to MBA person.

But your Frustration towards MBA people would be :

The company where you applied for a job would have been expecting MBA people to do that Job because they don't need to teach everything to handle a new client.

if you take me as an example- i am an MBA mark Guy , i have 6 yrs exp, but struggling hard to make use of My MBA, all the companies i get to work don't need an MBA, JUST a bag, bike, petrol and catalog. No need of any skill, just work like a Donkey.

So control your frustration towards MBA's and develop your will to that strong, when ever you see an Double degree person, just think you are too far better than him/her.

Good day!

Dear Savvio

You don’t have to be a Harvard or IIM graduate to be successful. Good business schools matter; but going to them is no guarantee for success. Successful business leaders are not a customised product coming out of the assembly line of universities, Indian or Foreign.

Shrewd and knowledgeable moves are acquired from experience as many successful business leaders have proved. Business experiences do not allow one to make mistakes; but experience is gained by making mistakes. Basic requirement of a businessman is the ability to foresee future, dynamism, motivation and the ability to involve others in their dream to success. A deep desire to create something new and exceptional is a key factor. Initiative is a combination of three qualities namely courage, self confidence, and decisiveness. Initiative is a capacity for assuming responsibility for starting and doing things with little or no guidance.

Initiative, Courage, Wisdom, Passion and attitude are not taught in any school. Some things only life can teach you not business schools. Business school teach you case studies. But qualities such as vision, focus, passion, attitudes, self belief, willingness to accept risks, willingness to accept uncertainties and creativity are difficult to learn. Formal education in management helps to channelize these qualities and is high in knowledge. Skills are invariably developed through practice. Training in business helps one achieve goals more effectively and efficiently. This is not to say that an MBA degree is useless. Management schools have produced some great business managers world wide. But all students who have acquired MBA degree have not become great business managers.

It is not necessary for a
good manager to have an MBA.
In fact for senior positions,hands on managerial experience is desired.
Also sorry to say that the standard in some b-schools, is poor-in areas of encouraging innovation,creative thinking and above all,in building leadership skills.
