In an increasingly globalized world, there is both greater competition for employment, and a need for people with the skills to manage and lead in a diverse, international business environment. This need is no more relevant than in the semiconductor industry, in which the last five years has seen an unprecedented growth in global markets. Managers and engineers are increasingly looking for ways to leverage and enhance their knowledge and skills set in order to become valued business leaders in this field. The MBA (Masters of Business Administration) degree is an excellent way to achieve these aims for a variety of reasons: it focuses on both the theory and practice of modern management; transforms a functional view of management into a more effective general one; develops the professional ‘soft’ skills needed for leadership in business; and opens up a number of international opportunities and experiences. This article explores the variety of ways in which an MBA can provide demonstrable value for managers looking to become leaders in the semiconductor industry, and provides essential advice on choosing the right programme.
