Abstract

It is no secret that employers when they recruit people for administrative positions usually look for candidates with an MBA degree, which has come to be seen as the leading postgraduate business degree. Naturally, an MBA degree holder is expected to possess the necessary knowledge and skills to manage businesses. However, as the demands change, so do the skills expected of the MBA degree holders. This paper examines what the employers expect of a recent business school graduate considered for a position in their companies and what is required of the aspirants and business schools to live up to such expectations.
