Things MBA students like

It's that time of the year again. In a couple of weeks, roughly two thousand of the world's (arguably) best and brightest douchebags will descend upon the world's most hallowed halls. I congratulate you. As you undoubtedly know, the next two years will take your douchebaggery to a whole new level and ensure your access to cash flow and top-notch pussy for life. Here's my salute to you.

Things MBA students like:

  1. Abusing Career Services privileges. ("Hey guys... one shot of Jaeger every 60 seconds; first man down has to sign up for the AOL interview and post a public pic to Facebook of himself shaking hands with the recruiter.")
  2. Taking an $18 cab to go someplace where the beers are fifty cents cheaper.
  3. Ridiculous costumes. Double points if worn in class when no one else is wearing one.
  4. Facebook status updates from the tops of prestigious mountains. ("I can't believe I've got coverage at the summit of Mt. Everest! I
  5. Giving fond nicknames to prestigious mountains. ("Kili, I miss you already! See you again in only ten months. Oh, and total props to all the sherpas. You guys rock!")
  6. If white: insinuating, but never actually stating, that their background is middle-class or lower.
  7. If not white: insinuating, but never actually stating, that their family is filthy rich.
  8. Not buying any textbooks or course packs. Ever.
  9. Buying multiple copies of Case in Point.
  10. Getting hammered, en masse, the night before a major final exam.
  11. Clubs with lots of vice president titles. ("I was VP of second-round admissions for the India club!" Translation: he organized a night out for six people.)
  12. Carrying their school supplies in a laptop bag.
  13. Leaving their laptops at home for team meetings. ("Sorry, guys... my laptop's broken; I'll just chime in with my suggestions instead of being the one to actually do the work.")
  14. Pastel polo shirts. Anywhere a regular guy would wear a t-wso/">shirt, the MBA student wears a polo wso/">shirt.
  15. Being overdressed. For females, this includes wearing sequins in non-sequin environments.
  16. Corny eighties music (bonus points if it's two straight guys crooning ballads to each other at karaoke.)
  17. Leaving witty insults on event signup sheets in Google Docs.
  18. Bringing rollaboards to class so they can go (ostentatiously) straight to the airport afterwards.
  19. Charity projects.
  20. Oktoberfest.
  21. Undergrads.
  22. Group photos.
  23. Going to Vietnam, Thailand, or India on the weekend.
  24. Cheating, but just a little bit.
  25. Racist humor. Extra points if it's racist penis humor.

b-school is for people who can't hack it in the workforce...if you are truly a strong employee you don't need a bullshit degree to move up in the world.

I love it when we get a new crop of freshly hired MBAs who think they are hot shit and think they can run the world and then they realize that despite the fact that they are 2-4 years older than me and out $200K that I am more senior than them despite the fact that I didn't go to b-school and only have 4 years of experience post undergrad.

Pretty obvious by my username...but that's besides the point. If you are good at what you do you don't need to go to b-school. I have a buddy from h.s. that went to a no name school and ended up at MS where he made VP at 27 without having to go to b-school. We have guys on my team that went to no name schools that are really strong and have moved up the ranks quickly b/c they have what it takes. The MBAs we've hired from top school are entitled assholes that generally aren't very good...must be pretty demoralizing though for those guys to join our team only to realize that they are less senior, less respected (although this is probably more industry specific as I work in tech and MBAs are seen in a pretty negative light), and lower compensated that guys that are younger than them that didn't have to go get a scam of a degree just to signal that they are halfway decent.

Your first sentence reeks of ignorance. If an MBA is so useless why do top consulting firms, banks, private equity firms, send their associates to top b-schools en masse? Also, why do top firms hire so many MBAs if as you put it, "b-school is for people who can't hack it in the workforce?" I suppose McKinsey is a totally irrational actor who hires losers, right?

I think bankerella's posts are getting a lot of undeserved hate. Her rhetoric and tone may be a bit over the top, but her core argument is totally accurate: attending a top b-school is a truly transformational fun experience. Now, whether that's worth $200K+ is a personal decision. But don't deride some of the best and brightest who choose to attend these programs. It just makes you sound petty and envious.

These firms hire MBAs because they are sales companies at heart. It's easier to tell a story to a client that you are pitching when you can say "oh all of my employees are Ivy, etc." Despite the fact that a guy who is top 10% at Michigan or Texas, etc. is probably better than the average guy at HYP undergrad. At the end of the day, finance and consulting are nothing more than glorified sales jobs. A banker is no better than a residential real estate broker except the thing they are selling is on a larger scale. It's not that a firm like McK is irrational...it's just hiring from these schools helps their sales pitch.

While I agree with your point that an MBA is a fun experience it is definitely not transformational...in most fields if you go and spend those two years doing an MBA or if you don't go and just keep getting promoted for those two years at the end of the day you are probably going to end up in the same place.

@Brady -- the comment about only the top 10% of undergrads comparing to Booth/Wharton MBAs is completely ridiculous.

Sup bro. Are you struggling with reading comprehension? I explicitly compared the AVERAGE Booth/Wharton MBA to the AVERAGE Harvard undergrad and said that the former is smarter and more impressive. I admit that the top 10% at harvard undergrad is pretty fucking solid.

They're very tough to compare I guess.

I'd still argue that the average H undergrad student interested in finance is more impressive than your average student at Booth.

Kilos? Fuck that, get your analyst to run that model. I don't speak European.

But utility in thousands obviously depends on your performance ratios, risk tolerance, and the curvature of your personal utility function (remember, all utility functions are logarithmic). Including the whole M7 will dilute average NPV of utility bump from b-school. Taking it down a couple notches, because there are some really crappy schools in the M7, my model says mean net utility bump would be $2,573,460.24 at a 7% discount rate. 10x return, not shabby.

  • Facebook status updates from the tops of prestigious mountains. ("I can't believe I've got coverage at the summit of Mt. Everest! I
  • Giving fond nicknames to prestigious mountains. ("Kili, I miss you already! See you again in only ten months. Oh, and total props to all the sherpas. You guys rock!")
  • I know your just joking around and writing nonsense for the sake of it bankerella, but stop pretending you and your MBA buddies are anything other than fat, over-worked, and unhealthy pieces of shit.

    As someone more involved in the outdoor world, I can tell you the conditions on any mountain worth climbing don't allow for fucking status updates every five minutes, and real climbers don't say "You guys rock!" to Sherpas.

    And thinking about it a bit deeper, no-one climbing Kilimanjaro would use the word "Sherpa" anyway, if they're not from Nepal/Tibet you call them "porters".

    My friend, I don't need to make shit up when the truth is this fucking funny.

    A personal friend of mine has referred to them as "sherpas" upon returning from her fave summit, "Kili". I have also seen numerous updates from summits, as well as less frequent updates from the path up. And I have seen people using social media to try to give shout-outs to people who will never own a smartphone or have a Facebook account. I am utterly serious. This happens.

    These are the people you will go to b-school with, if you go.

    This can't be what people who go to top business schools are really like, is it? Maybe I don't want to do this after all! Are there normal people too?

    Yes, there are. They tend to fly under the radar, but if you flash them the sign, they'll flash it back.

    Being half-drunk and reading through this thread gave me the same feeling in my gut that I get when I'm at a party and a fight is about to break out. And this is the internet.

    To say that MBAs from top schools are generally assholes is a little unnecessary considering the fact that it is implied by everything bankerella has posted about them on WSO. In fact, I think that she is trying to capitalize on the disparity between what kind of assholes these assholes actually are, and the kind of assholes that the uninitiated assume these assholes to be. Perhaps she is simply trying to embrace these fucking assholes and celebrate the confounding lack of maturity in some otherwise serious individuals. Either way, bankerella (if I may address you personally--I was talking to the group but then I turned my head in your direction and you are looking up at me with those eyes, eager and captivating, yet soft and surrendering, hanging on every word I say) . . . . Either way, you are doubtless one of these assholes. So regardless of your intent, whether you meant to communicate irony or to brag or whatever, you cannot escape who you are: an MBA asshole, which is fine by me.
