posted about the latest Fedex TV Ad. The conversation
that takes place in the ad is reproduced below
A recent FedEx television advertisement features a young man on his first day. His boss tells him "we're just in a bit of a jam. All this has to get out today."
"Yeah, ah ... I don't do shipping," he replies.
"Oh no, no, it's very easy," she answers.
"We use Fedex.ca. Anybody can do it."
"You don't understand, I have an MBA."
"Oh, you have an MBA?"
"In that case, I'll have to show you how to do it."
The voice over nails it with: "Fedex.ca makes shipping so fast and easy ... even an MBA can do it."
Fedex itself employs quite a few MBA’s and I guess some of them would have been involved in the making of this ad. Fedex has a reputation
of coming out with some good ads and this one would probably not go into that list.The Vermont Cynic
says that the MBA degree no longer carries the same value, which it carried few years ago. Indicators like the number of MBA applicants and also the job prospects prove that the demand for the degree is on the decline.
One of my profs used to say that MBA stands for Money Before All. To Abhijit Bhaduri, MBA stands for Mediocre But Arrogant
and his book by the same name is going to be released in a week’s time.
