For those thinking of pursuing an MBA...

The quality of your education will depend not on your school and not on your professors. It will depend on the quality of your peers, i.e. your classmates and groupmates. Your professor is for the most part a facilitator. There are no lectures in an MBA class. An MBA is peer education. That's why most institutions require a certain amount of work experience before you can be accepted into their MBA programs. You teach what you've learned. They learn from you, you learn from them.

Some time ago, I asked a friend what the difference was between an undergraduate Psych degree and a graduate Psych degree (she has both, plus a master's degree in another field and PhD units). The latter, she said, was more about self-education. In other words, you took on greater responsibility for your education.

With an MBA, it's about learning from others, from their experiences.

If you decide to pursue an MBA and stick to it, you'll be drowned with group work. You'll need to be around people who know what they're talking about. You'll need to be around people who know how the world works. Unfortunately, you'll also be around people who'll say that the solution to a certain problem is to let the managers or president know about the problem ("Isumbong natin sa presidente!"). How idiotic can you get? But it happens.

With an MBA, it's really about your peers. There may come a point (hopefully not) where you feel that you're teaching more than learning...and paying for it. If such a time comes, it may be better to just leave and go elsewhere.

Am planning to study for an MA in Theology at Loyola School of Theology, an affiliated unit of the Ateneo de Manila University. Right now am still completing my BA in Philosophy at the Ateneo.

Yes, I'm planning to take up masteral in Business Admin or Engineering.

Syempre sa my former school ko. UP.

Why? It is for me to have a further knowledge on the said field.

Agree ako sa sinabi ni jt2003. Best thing to do before enrolling in an MBA program is to gain a rounded experience in different business areas like marketing, production and finance. In this way your contribution to the class is meaningfull, your dicussions with your prof has depth and your can compare what you learn in class with your actual experience.

Nag enrol ako sa MS program sa isang university dyan sa Intramuros. Puro paper chaser ung kaklase ko at yung karamihan ng professors takot sa discussions. Sayang pera.

Take the mba. Better yet, go full time/load up on units, if you can afford it. Stick to the local brand names if you're going to study in the Philippines. (Ateneo, DLSU, UP, AIM)

That degree combined with a decent work experience will open doors for you both locally and around the region.

(Nowadays, I noticed that a lot of multinationals hire regionally - i.e. they look for talent around the asiapac region.)

It will all boil down on the student. If you really have that zest in learning and not just get a diploma and a title then get a masters.

But if your getting it just to have a promotion. I beg not, chances are you'll get promoted but if your really not serious in learning your boss and subordinates will realize that your juat crap. ( Mas nakakahiya lang)

PLM is a good place to take your MBA the same quality of education that you can get from DLSU, Ateneo, and UP.

Most of my former prof. are also MBA grads from PLM and they are teaching in CSB and they came from the said schools.

Financial wise mas mura ito kaysa kumuha ka sa mga exclusive schools na ang tataas ng tuition just to get a hold of their MBA diplomas.

Actually nag iipon pa ako for the MBA course then kuha ako ng teaching units para makapag turo sa CSB or maybe other school para naman ma i share ko ang mga natutunan ko from CSB.

Hmm, puro MPA, MBA ang mga nababasa kong master dito ha? Wala bang interesadong kumuha ng health related masters?

Kung meron, I suggest go to UP-Manila\ kung kaya mong maging student on residency. PEro kung gahol ka, try mo yung UP-Open University. Modular ang aral at once a week ang meeting, mayroon ding internet courses para sa nasa malayong ibayo ng Pinas. Bagay ito sa mga students na independent study ang orientation ngh kanilang learning process.

Since walang Master in Physical Therapy pa dito sa pinas, im presently taking up Master in Health Professions Education, coz I'm teaching in a medical school. Ganda ng courses, talagang relevant lahat at mababait ang mga teachers.
