Seeing Differently: Putting MBA Learning into Practice
Hay, Amanda
International Journal of Training and Development, v10 n4 p291-297 Dec 2006
MBA programmes frequently form part of managers' training and development activities. However, such programmes have been subject to intensifying criticism, with critics arguing that MBAs do little to enhance management practice. Against this background, the paper presents an exploratory study of UK MBA graduates, which sought to identify the ways in which their MBA programme was seen to contribute to management practice. The findings suggest that the MBA is seen to add value to management practice in terms of seeing differently, in respect of self, others and organization.
