job satisfaction and propensity to leave.
The question that stimulated the research was whether the MBA
qualification adds value to individuals, leading to the MBA being valued by companies.
The answer to this question is important as more the companies work in a
competitive environment, trying to maximize their efficiency. The most
important assets of any businesses and that businesses must invest in people.
Should MBA graduate students be the target for managerial
Should businesses sponsor MBA studies for promising managers?
The research on MBA studies has led to the common concept that MBAs
gain positive qualities,
The whole conclusion for this research is that MBA studies help
graduate students gain an advantage over their colleagues, at least in their own
self-reports. These advantages are concerned generally with their skills. If
the purpose of MBA programs is to produce better leaders by providing graduate
students with stronger managerial competencies, these results show that MBA
programs are achieving that goal.

University, conduced a research with addressed Learning Intellectual and
Emotional Intelligence Capabilities Through Graduate business administration Education the research question was “Can MBAs and
participants in business administrative education improve competencies related
to outstanding managerial and manager performance?
The research presented a promising answer that MBAs education can
help people improve intellectual and emotional intelligence capabilities needed
to be outstanding managers. However we cannot use the typical session and-discussion
methods with their focus on knowledge gaining only. Fairly a more general
approach can help dramatically improve the impact and the significance of an
MBA to graduated students’ future work organizations. There is some reservation
about the knowledge holding of MBAs. A main challenge to MBA education is to improve
the ability to use management knowledge.

to search effective curricular and programmatic responses as opportunities for
MBA programs to update. The research aimed to call for cooperative action through
the business administration field to efficiently address these challenges.
The Researchers recognized eight unfulfilled needs, many of them associated

desired direction, another one suggested. “We need to ask, ‘What are we really
good at? Where can we be distinctive? How can we add value? We agree passionately.
Our only attention
is that, in the procedure, MBA program provider avoid spending too much time
fine-tuning and re-engineering their program structures and designs without
changing the matter of their universities’ offerings. These efforts, while principal
to differentiated student experiences, are of vague learning value. At the same
time that we favor diversity, we believe that all universities would benefit
from action on two fronts. First, we propose that MBA programs offer more attention
to teaching thinking and cognitive skills. These skills are involve cognitive courses
of some sort that assist as the input or groundwork for more active decision
making. For similar reasons, we believe that all MBA programs need to focus
more attention on issues of accountability, principles and social
responsibility, which are needed to effective management. Management decisions
are increasingly subject to public examination and evaluation. As the public’s anticipations
of business managers have increased, so too have the supplementary demands for extending
the scope of business preparation.
