8 Qualities of Remarkable MBA Students – A Peer Perspective

While reading a recent article by Jeff Haden, “8 Qualities of Remarkable Employees” my thoughts turned to the qualities of remarkable MBA students. I took the liberty of reworking Jeff’s eight qualities, modifying his wording so it applied to MBA students and created new qualities and descriptions when his wording would not work. Furthermore, I realized while writing that an MBA faculty member’s list of qualities will likely differ from those found on an MBA student’s list. With this in mind, the following qualities are those that I think make an MBA student remarkable in the eyes of an MBA classmate, MBA peer, or MBA team member. Moreover, I see these eight qualities as a starting point. I invite the MyeEMBA readers to add to the list.

Great MBA peers are “reliable, dependable, proactive, diligent, respectful, willing to share… they possess a wide range of easily-defined—but hard to find—qualities.” However, some are remarkable, possessing qualities that may not appear on admission criteria but nonetheless make a major impact on the experiences of other MBA students.

MBAs – Easily Share Your Flip Chart Content

MBAs, how often do you attend a team meeting and at its conclusion the wall is covered with flip chart pages? Then, how often do you see one of your MBA team members roll them up to take them home for conversion to a shareable format? My experience working with MBA student teams and MBA faculty teams is meetings end this way too often.

Now, look around your office, how many rolls of used flip chart paper do you see? When I visit the offices of people that work in groups or teams I often find their offices cluttered with the remnants of their meetings.

Today my office is spared from this clutter because of a very simple solution. Click on the heading to read more about my simple solution.
