Importance of general knowledge in management career-Lexicon MILE
One of the most important aspects of our daily life is a piece of general knowledge. You would be terribly wrong if you consider that the general knowledge is the one that comes from deep learning of the current affairs list and the history. It’s all about what happens around us and gaining a better understanding of the world. General knowledge lies in everything you see. Learning a hard-core topic by associating with a real-life situation can help you gain life skills and value.
As anyone would know, the entrance exams for a management program has a general knowledge section which has an equal weightage. Your thirst for general knowledge shouldn’t just stop there. It should continue and keep on improving even after you join a course and get a job for doing your management role in the best way possible.
Social interaction can actually be constrained as a consequence of a lack of general knowledge. A career in management or business would have a continuous requirement of interacting with various kinds of people. Someone in a managerial role would need to have impacting conversations with collegues and clients. The role of a marketing professional lies in influencing people positively about their product or service through the conversations he or she has with them.
An overall knowledge of world affairs would help you have a smooth and appealing interactions. You cannot always bombard a common man with technical details. A general topic would be a great conversation starter with someone who may turn into a future potential customer.
Any management position would ask for good decision-making skills. A business role will require you to have detailed knowledge of the current happenings to analyze the current market trends which would help in investing in companies or funds that may give potential returns.
Your field may not have the need for you to become well-versed in the political happenings of your country. But when the politics are bound to affect the market value of products or services, your strategic planning for the improvement of your firm is influenced by your political or general awareness and your actions based on that.
Management exams and interviews:
General knowledge is nowadays considered only as a syllabus for any entrance examinations. Nevertheless, people get to know a lot about the world atleast for these exams. Even MBA entry exams and interviews include the GK part.
A personal interview that follows a written exam may include a range of general questions. This may help you make a good impression with the interviewer. Being good at GK may get you through most of the competitive exams with ease.
Be it academic or personal, everything around is in some way connected with the current happenings around the world. Management programs can be well understood when relating them with the real-world scenarios. Degree programs at Lexicon MILE are designed to help you grow your general knowledge while mastering the business management skills.
