Words of wisdom from my professors


Within couple of weeks my childhood dream of accomplishing degree from highest echelon of academia is about to be realized. No matter how turmoil this journey was, I am hopeful for my next dream to return back to graduate school in my forties for PhD and create new knowledge in my field. Within MBA school professors tortured my mind with confusions, self-doubts and led to beware about having meaningful life. I am thinking many valuable ideas, lectures and guidance will be lost from memory in the course of time. So, why not write something in blog post as words of wisdom, so that I can look back 10 years later what I learned! Of course it's an interesting idea.

The most important thing I learned from my professors at MBA school is how to make good decisions and using various tools used in different decision making hierarchy. Accessing subscription based journals and digging articles for my purpose was the most valuable thing I learned so far. Reading is an amazing thing whenever you have peer reviewed articles of high quality. In third world country like Bangladesh I would like to compare it as a serious business like flying! Even from Islamic point of view Allah (God) ordered human beings to read on His name within the first revealing.

Today I am concluding with the complement from my favorite professor Dr. Nadim Jahangir Sir. He emphasized to read newspapers, magazines and other reading materials in English language; not Bangla. Because almost all journal articles are published in English. Reading journal articles require extensive vocabulary. Operational definition for working environment is sometimes different from our day to day definition.
