Hunter’s post does a great job explaining the subtle difference between “getting an MBA” and “being an MBA” that often leaves myself and the general public dropping 4 letter words when they meet people who “are MBAs.”
His post says it far better than I can but I’ve always thought about it in terms of humility, people, and intellectual curiosity:
- Be humble enough to know you don’t know everything
- Take time to get to know people, not just their resumes
- ABL - Always be learning
From my time at Google interacting with post-MBAs and my time at Wharton I’ve found those three things to be excellent measures for people I want to spend time with as well as those that are successful.
My 2 cents
