The Joy of an MBA provides stories from MBAs who've managed to create the success they wanted after obtaining their MBA.

The MBA has been regarded by many as THE credential to possess to build a successful career. The challenge for MBA graduates is in figuring out what to do with the degree upon completion. “The Joy of an MBA” brings you multiple perspectives on the impact an MBA can have on your career as told by MBA graduates from around the world. This ebook addresses many career related issues for MBA holders including networking, interviewing, leadership, finding your passion, finding your purpose, social networking and more.

If you’re considering the MBA or are already a student, this ebook will help you understand why many students pursue the degree, what obstacles they’ve encountered and how they’ve managed to find happiness with their MBA and career. As the first book in the Henry Series for MBAs, “The Joy of an MBA” will serve as your guide through the MBA program and into the world of business.

The Henry Series for MBAs will bring deeper insight into the usefulness of the MBA as each ebook will take you on a journey around the world as students, graduates, professors, career center directors, employers and career coaches share their experiences. Topics in this series include Defining your value, Networking, Career Change, Career Strategies, Mentoring, Assessing Employers, Leadership and more. You’ll also learn from some of the world’s greatest experts as we feature Marshall Goldsmith, Brian Tracy, Steve Farber, Samuel Chand, John Adair, David Allen and many more.


Very few graduates would argue that the MBA opens many doors of opportunity. The difficult question to answer is “which door do you choose to walk through?” Typically the doors are donned with their own nameplate. Over the past few years, it seems that there are five doors in the hallway of the MBA career. The nameplates read “consulting,” “management,” “career change,” “entrepreneurship,” and “future options.” For those who obtain the most joy and success in their career, the choice is simple and somewhat premeditated. They don’t pause at the entrance of the hallway in a struggle with indecision. Their moves are quick and intentional. Once at the door, the knob is turned and they walk in.
In my studies of successful MBA graduates, I’ve noticed many defining characteristics surrounding this little thing called “Purpose.” By definition, purpose can mean the reason something is done and an intended or desired result. So, what would be the purpose of getting an MBA? Money, power and recognition? Sure. Who doesn’t want these things, right? This is normally where many problems begin to surface; that is, defining a purpose. Too often we begin to develop some clarity in our actions but fail to provide sufficient resolution to the picture, thinking that in time we will experience an epiphany that will make the final brush strokes on the canvas of our career. We normally define the purpose by establishing associations to the end result we seek. Unfortunately, this only seems to lead to procrastination and a delay in achieving your goals, which we’ll discuss later. I often ask my clients what they received once they graduated and walked across the stage. You’re thinking about a diploma, right? The university didn’t hand you a check or money for your hard work over the past couple of years. They gave you an education. That was the deal. If your purpose is to make more money, it won’t happen here, but it will still happen.
