One of the interviewers asked me why I had decided to shift from the technical side and move on to do an Mba and I replied that no matter what line of work I was in. a time would come when I would need multidisciplinary skills to do my job and I would need to learn how to be a good manager. so I decided that French would be a very good learning experience for me.
