Why Does A Girl Do An MBA? – Women In Leadership Scholarship

Why does a girl do an MBA?


To get over a breakup? Because Fashion designing is too mainstream? To kill time? To delay marriage? To get away from home? To find a cute successful boy?

That’s just lame.

So why do girls actually do an MBA? The short version: To make a difference. Just the same as any guy who pursues an MBA.


MISB Bocconi recognizes this and has initiated the woman’s scholarship program to support outstanding and meritorious women candidates that apply to the PGPB program. This scholarship provides valuable financial support to excellent women candidates enabling them to follow their dreams without the financial burden that comes along with pursuing one’s dream. The scholarship amount is Rs 2 Lakhs.

So who gets the scholarship? The recipients of the scholarship should be high potential candidates with exemplary leadership skills in one or more of the following areas: academic leadership, team leadership, community leadership, community leadership, and creative leadership.

This initiative brings women one step closer to being the force of nature that they are born to be. Be ambitious, be empowered. You have a gifted mind and an extraordinary soul. Don’t let anyone or anything eclipse your dreams.

‘This is a Promoted Feature’

In your poor attempt at sarcasm you simply manage to be distasteful and insulting to one whole gender seeming as though you think women are objects inferior to men. You may argue that your objective is not to offend but to counter those points you come across as someone who strongly portrayed women as fragile and meant to be married off and then in a very weak and hasty manner tried to show yourself off as a supporter of women.
This is obviously a sponsored article by MISB Bocconi. I would simply suggest that you hire better people to write articles. Ones that seem committed to your idea of women empowerment and equality rather than someone who thinks they can make a joke about it and weaken the sentiment. Oppression of women and considering them as housekeepers who bear children is nothing to be joked about. I hope the author of this article realises how distasteful his or her starting comments are and the website takes down this fathomable article.

Dear Taniya, We hope you have seen the video before commenting. The video is about setting right what is wrong with our world. Also, the whole point of the scholarship is to eventually empower women. We are finding it difficult to understand what you find objectionable here. Also, it is very clearly mentioned here that – ‘This is a Promoted Feature’. Also, this video was put up over a year back. This is the first time anyone’s made any such observation. It possible you haven’t seen the video at all and have jumped the gun.
