'Will my MBA be enough to make a jump in my industry or should create my own start-up to get the most of it?’
Beyond the content and sharing of best practice, MBA participants expect some incremental change to their careers, both financially and organisationally.
Is it reasonable to set your target directly on an executive role after completing an MBA – or should one use this one or two years opportunity to sit back and engage your career in a different industry? What about creating your own future by creating a start-up?
This presentation will address these various points and propose pragmatic advice and suggestions on making the most of the directions your career could take you upon graduation.
