It is becoming an increasing trend for students to opt for an MBA program without understanding the relevance of the degree. This is the result of an existing belief that an MBA degree is the gateway to an illustrious life and spare change. The emphasis on passion is completely lost with this transgression. This causes a disruption in the output of graduates from the numerous institutes all over the country. If there is a passion to do something then the output will reflect the hard work put in by the individual. This is not specific to any course or industry – it holds true in all aspects of life. Once the passion in the field is identified, the individual will be forced to work towards perfection irrespective of the course, field or caliber of work. This is easier said than done but if we all work towards achieving our aspirations and follow our passions then our lives will become much more fruitful.
