Why MBA?

Jumping from science to business field, ramai tanya kenapa kenapa kenapa. 
Kenapa tak sambung master in Biology jugak. Biotechnology ke medical biology ke or any related field. Everyone's favourite question haha! 
Post ni sepatutnya up sejak 2-3 bulan lepas. Tapi baru sekarang nak up. Sorry lah ye lambat banyak haha

Oh by the way dulu I did my degree in science Biology. So bila master ni ambik MBA, which is business admin, ramai jugak la yang tertanya tanya. Tapi ramai jugak yang sokong. Before tu memang dah plan nak sambung master bukan sebab terpaksa or apa taw. Memang minat nak rasa ada master certificate and pakai jubah dua lines haha. And also Im not ready to move to the next phase of my life, which is working phase...... 

Actually choosing to enroll in MBA was a hard decision. Sebab both pun I minat. Biology pun I minat, Business pun I minat. Macam mana ni... Haha so after discussing with Ayah, decision made, I choose MBA! And its final! So I went through by submitting the application along with the autobiogrpahical essay, an interview, and a test (the details including my autobiographical essay is at my previous post).

As for me, susah nak belajar tu is not that hard. Its not I said it was easy. It is hard actually! But it is not really or real hard for me. I just need to put some extra efforts since Im not a business background student. Because during my degree time pun, every semester I took at least two business or management subjects. So some of the terms I have been heard and it is not a totally new for me . I took subjects such as marketing, management, operation management, entreprenuership, risk and insurance, finance, human resource, strategic management and so on during my degree. 

All these subjects is just a fundamental and basics one for us as a science students. Since Im interested with business too, so I don't have any problems with all these subjects. Cause some of my friends are not really agree for science students to take the business or management subjects. I do loveeee all these subjects! Besides it is easy to understand and less harder compared to science subjects, I also can gain additional knowledge about bisness.

I also did joined few business or entreprenuership programmes during degree time including a seminar or bengkel on how to create a website, how to increase our bussiness performance through social media, how to generate a technology based idea, how to do pitching etc etc. Most of the programmes were conducted 3 days and 2 nights in hotel.

All the programmes was sponsored by MASMED UiTM, special for UiTM students. Yes students can join all these for FREE! Sangat lah rugi taw for UiTM students yang tak grab peluang ni. Sebab kalau kita join any of the programmes yang bukan under our Uni, kena bayar taw. And mahal bukan murah. Yang MASMED ni bayar pun mahal sebab dia panggil orang luar untuk conduct the sharing session.

In fact until now MASMED is still active doing such activities. And I also did selling a hijab (shawl and bawal) online. It just for fun for me to have an experience in business and dealing with customers. 

So again, why MBA? First because I am interested with this course. Second, Im looking forward for my better future. I should now concern with my future with this current economic condition. I personally think if I have master in business admin, it will give better carrier opportunities for me to be in the industry soon, InshaAllah. And for your information, I wanted to be a lecturer. A business lecturer to be specific. It has been my dream since I was 18! That's another reason why Im taking this course.

Let say if one day its not my Rezeki for teaching, I would love to work in an office too, that the position suit with my qualification. And also I would love to have my own business empire and be a successful businesswoman, so that I can be rich, rich enough to help people and belanja orang this and that so that they will be happy and rich enough to give everything my family wants without saying "NO" and "Im sorry I cannot buy for you this and that". I believe if I make people happy in any way (one of the way is by giving sedekah or hadiah & belanja makan), people will make doa for you. Its not necessarily doa like tadah tangan and all that, even when they say something like "semoga murah rezeki kau" it will become a doa too you know. Okay so with all the knowledge I gained later on, I will make use of it.

After some readings, observations and research made, I found that business field is sooooo high demand by the market. Please name me the company that doesn't need a management/business person. I bet you cannot. Even hospital and engineering company also do need management person to run their business. You know, for their marketing, business operation and so on. All companies need this people! Even according to the top ten jobs in Malaysia, 6 or 7 of them need employees with business qualification to fit in the job position.

This opens my eyes as well as my heart to take an action, that I must do something. I must try my best to give the best for my future. The rest, the rezeki and so on I will leave to Allah. But I believe that first we must try as hard as we can + pray hard.

Besides, with the degree I got in biology, and soon master in business admin, it will make my opportunities wider as these two different fields give me higher chances to fit in the industry. Hopefully, Amiiiin... InshaAllah.

Anyway it is actually depends on the individual. If you think that way, then you decided that way. You're the only one who knows yourself better. As for me, I believe by enroll in MBA, it will create better future for me. So I will worked that way.

I never meant like my way is better than your way. No. This is my own belief. We do have different opinions, interest and so on. At the end, lets pray for the best so that Allah can give us the best that we need. In anything we do, I pray that Allah will ease everything for us. 

Thankyou for reading this entry.

  3. This article has given me good information. Thank you. Many of us take up MBA but do not know the relevant reason and the story connected to it. Today with online MBA it is possible to do education and also your full time job. Any person should know their goal and future plan before taking up MBA.
