|Jevgenijs Belezjaks: Reflecting on my MBA studies at Riga Business School
Before I talk about how I use what I learned during my MBA studies, I would like to point out that the teaching methods and the approach to studies gives a lot and allows us to grow independently and is a significant boost to one’s competitiveness in the labour market in future. It is worth studying for this alone!
|As regards to what I learned and how I use it in the public sector, then everything is very simple. I have observed that the standard of public sector administration is gradually approaching good corporate practice that are consistent with OECD recommendations.
|Everything in management that used to be only important to the private sector, is gaining momentum in the public sector. I will mention 3 main “novelties” for executives of state companies:
|I would like to conclude by saying that one should not forget that during the study process people form a lot of new connections with like-minded people and many of them flourish into a real friendship.
|To sum up: you can’t lose anything during the MBA studies. But you can gain a lot and even things you can’t measure with money.
