What are MBA graduates learning?

The Huffington Post says there are several life lessons to be gained from a business education.

  1. Live outside your comfort zone. Taking risks will help you find different business opportunities and learn through experience.
  2. Don’t work with people you don’t like. You spend too many hours at work to be around those you don’t get along with.
  3. Embrace people from different backgrounds. Everyone can bring unique experiences to the table, encouraging creativity.
  4. Don’t worry what others think of you. Be kind and do your best, but don’t let others’ feelings harm you.
