If you hold an MBA in Australia, your chances of a respectable reputation and a return on your financial investment is high, and there are plenty of MBA courses right here in Oz for you to choose from.
If you want your work to pay for you to be an esteemed MBA holder in Australia, then all you need to do is demonstrate to them why they should pay for you to study for an MBA qualification. Justify to your employer how they will achieve a return of financial investment by having an employee who holds the MBA qualification.
After all, money talks and if you can persuade them on this argument then, they’ll have no reason to doubt your ability to make magic happen as a result of your MBA course.
To convince your employee to part with the hard cash you’ll need to put together a deal that they cannot refuse.
This means thinking and acting as though you already have the MBA qualification and showing off your business prowess through your careful consideration, objectiveness, research, and presentation of a solid pitch.
Let’s face it, you are asking for substantial investment and if you think you can walk into your bosses office to ask them to stump up the money for your education randomly on a late Friday afternoon (or even worse a Monday morning) without preparation you will be disappointed.
You’ll need to create a deal that your employers cannot refuse and then pitch it to them like you’ve never pitched before. And then you’ll need to continue to pitch the same kinds of deals consistently for your employer to maintain the commitment from them.
Here’s what your pitch should include:
Whatever happens, you’ll need to make sure that you have a solid reason why an MBA is for you, and you’ll need to demonstrate that you have a carefully thought out an easily executable plan for studying and for how you will enhance your employers business.
But here’s the caveat – your plan needs to be flawless and one that your employer cannot resist.
Now that we’ve laid down the gauntlet, are you going to rise to the challenge?
