DO NOT TELL YOURSELF NO ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS “ DO IT “ 12 Eye Without S http://eyewithouts.blogspot.com

Appendix: 你適合念MBA嗎? 「唸MBA的目的是當Manager或是當Leader, 如果這兩者都不是你的人生規劃,就不用 去念了!」 -台大國企系湯明哲教授- 13 Eye Without S http://eyewithouts.blogspot.com

MBA 人格特質檢測 • 你是否願意處理人事上的問題? – 管人,在工作環境上是最常見的事,所以對於人際關係必須有高敏感 度。假使不願意管人,也不想當教授,又不想當Analyst,那就不用去唸 MBA了。 • 是否能夠忍受風險及不確定性? – 對於管理企業,很多情況下都是「不可實驗」的,沒有標準的攻勢可解 答,常常須要冒著風險做決定,所以能不能忍受這種壓力的生活是唸 MBA的一項人格要件。 • 是否有紮實的邏輯思維? – 才能夠解決渾沌的企業問題。 • 是否具備Innovation的能力? – 不管再哪一行這都是重點。 • 對於處理企管相關的問題是否有”passion”? – 處理複雜問題時、思考經營理念與方向時,是否都能有熱忱的做完。 14 Eye Without S http://eyewithouts.blogspot.com

申請進 MBA 的都是甚麼樣的人? • 申請進MBA Program的人約可分為以下三類 – 好學生、好經歷、漂亮的成績單、豐富的生活。 佔50%。 – 很差的學生,但是有很獨特的工作經驗(比如處理過破產公司之類的)。 佔25%。 – 有富裕的家庭背景或校友背景,能夠捐錢給學校造福其他學生。 佔25%。 15 Eye Without S http://eyewithouts.blogspot.com

MBA 唸什麼? • 其實從入學到畢業只為繞一個核心問題:假使你是CEO,你要怎麼 辦? • 所學則包括 – 管理技術(如服務怎麼做) – 管理知識(組織行為等) – 管理邏輯:貫穿前兩者,最為重要。 16 Eye Without S http://eyewithouts.blogspot.com

唸完 MBA 的職涯規劃 • 建議同學出國唸MBA便直接在國外找工作而非回國。 – 因為唸MBA又回國工作的投資報酬率非常低,一年五萬美金的學費加上 商活費,兩年就十萬,對於美國學生來說,唸完MBA一年十五萬美金年 薪是小數目,所以再台灣工作一個月五萬台幣的月薪划不來。 – 美國學生唸完MBA通常會去投資銀行、顧問公司或是私募基金,但是這 三個產業在台灣並不蓬勃,所以唸完MBA的薪水沒辦法令人滿意。 • 假釋要唸MBA,就要規劃未來要做到好的管理職位,不能沒有規劃便 去唸。 17 Eye Without S http://eyewithouts.blogspot.com

湯教授對於申請MBA的建議 • SOP務必紮紮實實的寫,不要捏造,表現出自己的人格,讓前後回答 都能一致,但要符合MBA的要求(這是兩難,但是不符合的地方要位 自己辯解原因)。 • 推薦信寧可找對自己熟悉的人也不要找有名的人,內容才會深刻且有 價值。 • 不要辭職準備考試,國外的學校對於為了考試而辭去工作的人感到十 分不諒解。 • 假釋同學是台大畢業的,沒申請到Top20就不如唸國內的,否則只是 浪費錢。 • 唸MBA之前,最好能夠多累積一些獨特的工作經驗,並且要對一個產 業有很深入的暸解,在攻讀MBA時所吸收的知識與經驗才會多。 • 對於企圖創業的人,建議不需要唸MBA了!自己有系統的學習會計、 行銷與財務管理便足夠了。畢竟唸完MBA,光計算風險就不敢去創業 了。 摘自湯副校長2007台大校園徵才系列演講 http://nickyam.blogsopt.com/2007/03/mba.html 18 Eye Without S http://eyewithouts.blogspot.com
