Arnon Dorr on the MBA
Nowadays, anyone who wants to make it in the world of business should hold an MBA. Graduates like Arnon Dorr understand the complexities experienced by businesses from the bottom to the top. By holding this type of degree, people can take on positions in the top businesses in the world.
Economics are becoming increasingly global, and finance executives are expected to be focused and results oriented, which is what an MBA teaches them to do. People like Dror have prospects in any organization and they are in huge demand.
Obtaining an MBA takes around two years to complete. Many choose to complete a general MBA, but Dror chose to specialize and opt for finance in particular, as this is where his interests have always been. While he completed his MA in Micro Economics by going to school full time, his MBA was completed around his work as a Senior Operations Executive. Considering the high level of seniority of this role, being able to perform his duties while completing an MBA at the same time is a true testament to his skills and abilities.
More and more organizations like Xerox demand their financial senior executives hold an MBA. This is because their role is so much wider than solely accounting or bookkeeping, for instance. Dror himself is involve in studying and analyzing investment strategies, market economics, and how to raise more capital, which are hugely important strategies for businesses. It is no surprise, therefore, that someone with this type of degree has so many more prospects open to them. Indeed, this February alone Dror was offered positions in risk management, banking, and investment securities. He chose to remain with Xerox, however, where he tracks the various financial reports and uses his findings to drive strategic decisions that help the business develop and be ready to face upcoming challenges.
One issue of significant importance as well, is where someone obtained their education. The Hebrew University of Jerusalem is respected all over the world for turning out some of the best graduates around. Completing his education here set Arnon Dror up for a highly successful career. He recommends the MBA degree to anyone who is interested in taking on positions of true seniority within the world of business. Xerox, meanwhile, is one of the biggest companies in the world and they count themselves lucky to have been able to attract and retain someone of Dror’s skills and knowledge.
