I was perusing job ads the other day and I came across this requirement for a position at Dream Company:
"MBA talent, and Masters level talent in non MBA programs"
Here are the questions I have in relation to this. I didn't mean to have so many questions (they're basically two questions split up into 4 more specific questions) but it would be much appreciated if someone could help me figure this all out.
1) What the heck do they mean by "MBA talent"? Are they looking for people with both an MBA and talent? People who have MBAs? My friend (perhaps because s/he knows I have no MBA but have interest in this job) tells me they are looking for people who have business potential
, ie people whom they can mold and grow into good manager ants.
2) Would a company looking for such people be interested in people who do not have an MBA yet take the initiative to learn about business through their own personal study? How can I bring this soft skill known as initiative to shine across in a fill-in-the-blank, computer-animated application system?
3) Clearly the phrase "Masters level talent in non MBA programs" suggests the company is looking for people who have Master's degrees, no matter the discipline. Am I right?
4) This is perhaps the most important question:
I have only a Bachelor's degree, but I also possess significant (BUT non-businessy) experience in the geographical area in which this job would be focused and due to my unique background have a lot of insight into the culture / language / society. Is it worth my time applying to this without advanced degrees?
Gotta get somewhere in a little while but will check this in the afternoon. Thanks everybody!
