USP’s Graduate School of Business head stressed qualification not limited to the business world

 

The value of Master of Business Administration (MBA) qualification is not limited to the business world, says University of the South Pacific’s Graduate School of Business head, Professor Raghuvar Pathak.

He has stressed that MBA is an internationally-recognised degree designed to develop skills required for career in business and management.

Professor Pathak was addressing prospective students at the Tanoa Waterfront Hotel in Lautoka the past Friday during an information session.

As part of the information session, prospective students learnt about the different programmes offered by GSB as well as experiences of being a Master of Business Administration (MBA) student at USP.

Since its establishment in 1995, more than 1000 students have graduated from USP’s MBA programme across the Pacific.

Professor Pathak highlighted that USP’s MBA programme is the only internationally accredited programme in the region.

The MBA programme, which has been accredited by the Association of MBA’s (AMBA), is an official recognition that the programme offered by GSB is of comparable standards to those offered by other premier business schools around the world.

Professor Pathak said employers looking to acquire the best managers and future business leaders know graduates of AMBA-accredited programmes have received the highest quality and most relevant management education.

“To recruit a graduate from one of our accredited programmes is to recruit top talent,” Professor Pathak said.

GSB Lecturer, Mesake Nawari, said a study of the MBA programme a few years ago showed that MBA graduates from USP get an average of 67 per cent increase in their pay post MBA.

 

What it means

MBA student and registered nurse, Ms Wainikiti Soqolala said that MBA gives students a chance to reflect on issues both at the work front and global level.

Ms Wainikiti, who is also the Deputy Chairperson of GSB Student Board, reiterated that people should stop thinking that MBA is only for business people.

“MBA is for everyone. If I as a registered nurse can enroll, pay my way in and rub shoulders with students of different cadres, you can also do it,” Ms Wainikiti said.
