MBA Should not be Part of the University Trail
Prof. Giovanni M. Dalla_Colletta, Member, ICMC - CNCP, Italy

MBA preparation has nothing to do with the kind of job you may apply for.

As far as my personal experience - about 35 years in Companies and about 12 year as Senior Lecturer at University - I notice that the main difference, between a Full Professor and a Lecturer in teaching is having a background of practicing, or not, in the subject you are teaching. Practical experience allows MBA Students to be exposed to different approaches in attending Marketing course. My approach is to involve my students not in pre-defined case histories, but in real cases proposed by real companies.

Commenting the delusion of MBA graduate in not finding right away managerial positions and being proposed sales jobs, I feel that is quite naive to look for a managerial position if the only experience you get is your MBA degree. I strongly support the idea that the MBA should not be part of the University Trail, but a specific course to be attended after some years of solid practical experience at work.
