MBA teaches a student a lot of things that becomes a real deal in his or her career. A 2-year degree course sharpens the skills of students so that they can excel in their career.
The following are the skills that an MBA aspirant should have:
1. The art of management: This is the most important point and skill of all time. MBA teaches us management, i.e. how to manage, organize, staff, direct, coordinate, co-operate, motivate, discipline, and control others to get things done for common objectives.
You see, every organization has set of goals and objectives. And to fulfil the same it is important to have the art of management.
When we hear the bookish definition of management, we feel like something that is so easy or that can be done in say, seconds! But is that really true? Do you even know what management is? Because maybe you are in some sort of confusion regarding the aspect of management.
Management is a very important part of an organization. Management also plays an important role in our day to day life. From washing clothes to putting them in the wardrobe orderly, everything requires management.
Ask yourself, how often do you clean your desk? Ok, forget that, how often have you organized your clothes in your wardrobe? I guess now you are understanding the real definition of management.
Management is an art of getting things done. So, this is the first and the most important skill that an MBA aspirant should have.
2. Communication skills: Communication is the key to expressing of yourself. You cannot express your idea if you do not communicate the same.
Communication can be both verbal as well as non-verbal. Every organization expects from a candidate to have at least intermediary level communication skills because be it verbal or non-verbal, communication is a must as it is an art of expressing your idea.
3. Leadership qualities: An MBA aspirant should have the leadership qualities, actually everyone out there should have leadership qualities. A leadership quality is mandatory to have because a day might come when you would be chosen to represent your organization in front of the World at that time you cannot hesitate or run from the stage because your action can either lead to major success or to major failure of your organization.

Plus presentation skills are the basic expectancy from an MBA aspirant. Students are taught about the same thoroughly.
5. Report-making skills: Just like presentation, an employee should always know how to make a report. MBA students are taught at least 2 to 3 times about the report writing. Not just that, many colleges or institutes conduct separate workshops to provide knowledge to the students regarding the report writing.
6. Analytical skills: An MBA aspirant’s brain should be sharp enough to tackle all the weaknesses of an organization and to jot down the said strategies that can be implemented to improve the issues lagging behind!
Analytical skills include planning, analysis, interpretation, implementation, decision making, thinking, preparing, report-making, etc. An MBA aspirant should know how to analyse a given environment and to imply the type of strategies that would truly fit in the situation.
