An MBA qualification is a proven launch pad for career advancement, with many professionals using an MBA as a vehicle to upskill or reskill. This highly regarded qualification can lead to a wealth of new opportunities, but switching roles, industries or professions can be challenging and hard to navigate.
Our breakfast seminar on August 1st will feature a panel of professionals who have successfully navigated their way through a number of transitions during their professional careers.
