MBA commoditized ??

Ok this is the only place whr i can easily pour in my thoughts, my opinions (whether right or wrong) Here I placements at Hel(L) are just round the corner, ppl hv started studying fr tht i guess, can see a lot of "DND"'s in my gtalk. But ws jus thinking ..some ppl targetting finance co's..thts the mecca fr them..similarly some IT, based on their backgrd and hence the higher chances of landing up thr anywyz. Me too started with great fin-focus, but as i 've always been not a very-planned i am again, after 2 yrs, after having already gone thru the laterals process, hving done the mistake again of not applying to some good well-suited co's fr the finals process, made to think again tht aren't thr enough special courses to take care of say, equity research, say valuation, or say erp implementation, orr watever......
Aren't we as mba's supposed to be doing sthing better..aren't we supposed to be directed at places, whr its partly in our hands to take the responsibility of the future of the company. This, i think, is obviously impossible, by entering companies which recruit atleast 50-odd ppl in the same yr fr similar posts....the number of offers for the truly 'relevant' posts are minimal..the reallly few consulting co's, which u can nt even dream of without great cg's etcccc. and a handful of other co's giving really snr, responsible positions.....frankly its nt much different from just another software engr entering the workplace..guess only its one-level above

PS: know in this case, i might be terribly wrong, but then as i said am nt a very planned person...this is wats running in my mind nwadays.. Plz Pardon my ignorance
