“Six Fields of Study for MBA students” on MBA Studies, September 22, 2019.
According to The Enterprisers Project, aspiring IT leaders stand to gain many benefits from getting an MBA, starting with the network that comes along with it. According to Project Management Essentials LLC founding principal Alan Zucker, business skills trump technical skills the higher you climb up the ladder. “I have worked with many brilliant software engineers and technologists. These analytic and technical skills have made them very good in their current roles. However, as technologists move into management and leadership, they need to have a broader view of their organization, its mission, goals, and the interlinkages across different domains and frontiers. They also need to develop interpersonal skills as they collaborate with their business partners and lead their teams,” he explained.
