Ex MBA are an excellent source of information and criticism for rethinking the educational offer. New MBA Program EXISTING PROGRAMS (MBAs) They can be interviewed by using the same questionnaire of the executives but they are generally very eager to tell their experience as students and to describe their career paths. 13

Limitation/specialization 2. Refusing higher responsibility 3. Failures in assignments and supervision 4. Non realistic evaluation of own performance 5. Using positions for personal gain 6. Not being an example 7. Trying to be liked (rather than respected) 8. Emphasis: rules vs skills 9. Non constructive criticism 10.Not listening to employee complaints 17
