因为想考翻译证,最近很喜欢看China Daily,也很喜欢把China Daily中颇有意思的新闻抄录下来练笔。 之前用茄子说的方法,把新闻中不懂的单词抄下来,以首字母排好,然后按字母顺序一个一个地背。这样在背完A字母的单词后,看新闻就不会再出现一个以A开头而我又不懂的单词了。这个方法听起来好像很玄乎,但真照着做了大半年,发现现在看新闻真的几乎没有一个不懂的以A开头的单词了。好神奇~

当然,我不是说茄子说这个方法真有多好,只是觉得把背单词和看新闻结合在一起,还挺有意思的,而且从某个奇怪的方面而言,可是相当有成就感的哦!因为新闻的用语比较固定,同一类话题中,单词出现的重复率可是相当高的哦!

熊孩子,趁着立夏的热量,开始学习吧!

MBA graduates unhappy with raises and promotions
While a large number of Chinese business schools are celebrating their 30th anniversary this year, students' satisfaction levels are waning, especially when it comes to salary increases and promotions.

According to the latest MBA survey, conducted by global recruitment service provider BRecruit among 300 MBA students in Shanghai, half of the students were dissatisfied with the employment services that business schools have offered, saying that more practical opportunities and better communication with companies should be provided.

The surveyed MBA students come from 13 business schools including China Europe International Business School, Antai College of Economics & Management at Shanghai Jiao Tong University and the School of Business at East China University of Science and Technology.

Meanwhile, only 43 percent of the interviewed MBA students said that they are satisfied with the salary increase and promotion they gained upon graduation, while the majority think they have not reaped enough rewards for their hard work.

Tuition gets the lowest score of the items surveyed, with 60 percent of the respondents saying that they are dissatisfied with it. The tuition fees for MBA courses in China this year have ranged from 45,000 yuan ($7,244) to 388,000 yuan.

Liu Ming, 31, has just finished his MBA course at Shanghai University of Finance and Economics. But little has changed in his career or salary since his graduation. He is still working as a human resources manager, the job he did for five years before taking the MBA course. Even though his salary is 30 percent higher now, he does not seem content with the result.

"If given a second chance, I would definitely not go for an MBA. It's not worth the money. I paid 88,000 yuan for my tuition and yet it is too early to say when and how I will see that investment coming back. I did make more connections during the course, but most of them are at my level. Therefore, it will again take more time to tell if these connections will become more beneficial," said Liu.

"Students who joined the school one year later than I did had to pay a much higher 138,000 yuan tuition. Knowing that I didn't pay such a high price is the only thing that can cheer me up right now," he added.

But experts suggest that MBA students should be more open-minded when thinking of business education.

Guo Guangchang, chairman of Fosun Group, said that everyday meetings, topics for discussion and errands that are carried out are the best MBA education offered to employees.

Shaun Budnik, partner of Deloitte LLP, said in an open interview with the global accreditation organization of management education, AASCB International, that "education is just the start of a journey".

"The world is changing so rapidly that you should keep learning and developing throughout your career. You'll probably learn most working with those who are least like you. You are likely to learn more when your workplace is inclusive and to do your best work when your team is built from diverse strengths. You have lots to learn and something to teach as well," she advised MBA students.

At the same time, however, business schools should catch up with the latest trends, Budnik said. "It's important to be prepared for a borderless world in which talent has greater global mobility than ever before," she said.

 

I know nothing about MBA, but I can image how it runs according to the similar talent-training program hold in the company I am serving for. Frankly speaking, the course or data materials for the training is somewhat out of date to discuss or experiment, but I assume what we need to know from the course is not the case itself, but the core phenomenon in the business circle which would give essencial instruction for every specific case in the future. Studying is the first step to a new journey, well saying. But it doesn't fit for those who extremely want to achieve success, quickly, immediately. I am not saying that MBA deserves its value in all aspects, but I believe what the trainees paid for is a chance to improve, but not a power-for-money deal.
