It introduced me to various areas of business such as accounting, finance, marketing, human resources, operations management, etc. It will help me understand my core competencies .It was a total value-add.

Son :Yes,it also taught you to call me a 'deliverable' when I was born.I'm enjoying my Fine arts.Why should I go around selling soaps after an MBA?

Parent: MBA is not about selling soaps.It helps you develop important “real world” skills.Not to forget high CTC.
