To technology, with passion - Technology MBA Aspirants

Post Thu Oct 25, 2012 8:05 pm
Technology sector applicants form a very large chunk of B-school applicants and hence consider themselves at a disadvantage while applying to top B-schools. Such fears, however, are completely baseless. This infact, might be the best time for Techies to apply to B-schools. Why? Read on.

Being from a VLSI background, Hi-tech & Technology has been one of my core-strengths. After MBA, my love for Innovation & Technology has grown even more. Technology being one of the three pillars of any organization along with people and process is of paramount importance.

The evolving game plan

Not long back companies used to view technology as enabler rather than a differentiator. The situation has completely changed in last 5-6 years. With knowledge getting democratized and processes becoming standardized, technology has emerged as the new source of competitive advantage. Companies hence are fighting to protect IPRs and retain their Technology talent and leadership.

Consequently a CTO office in many companies no longer functions as a cost center. It has become the powerhouse of innovation and major driver of tangible business success. Hence, this may be best time to go for a MBA for people who are truly passionate about technology.
