Seth Godin offers you an Alternative MBA  

Posted by Dino Gane-Palmer né Ganesarajah in

Even if Seth Godin split some milk while drinking a carton, the Internet would go wild on news of it. Check out the results of this Google Search on Seth Godin's Alternative MBA.

Seth Godin: I've always thought him to be a little bit over-rated. However, there is no denying his incredible success. So I find myself suddenly very, very tempted by his opportunity to work with him, be it for free (to do an Alternative MBA, as he calls it) for six months.

His fan base already seems to be lapping it up with great enthusiasm. Calling it an 'Alternative MBA', surely the likes of me and the rest of you actual MBA applicants for Class of '09 must be the kind of person he is targetting. He has even timed it so that any of us could do it and still matriculate in time for the MBA in Fall '09.

The full details are here:

Anyone else tempted?

I appreciate Godin, although I think he loses track of the strategic implications of some of his suggestions. Mostly I'm talking about off-the-cuff comments he makes on his blog, so it's hard to come down too hard on him. But he doesn't seem to see that sometimes products or services are imperfect because the marginal gain in profit on improving them doesn't pay for the far more significant cost of doing so.

Anyhow, I really like the idea — I think it's great he is offering that possibility to people. I would definitely contemplate it in addition to the MBA if I had the time and ready cash. :-)

At last...

One MBA Applicant that mentions Godin in his blog!

Although I am at work and I do not have time to go through your blog, I added without second thought a link to your blog.

Good points, Vitaly. The rush of enthusiasm has passed and I'm now weighing up the prospect of losing income for a further 6 months on top of the 2 years lost at B School. Hmmm...

Makis - thanks for the add. I've added you to my list also. I'm sure there are plenty of Godin lovers in the B School crowd :-D.
