I was pleased to take part as a panellist on the Guardian newspaper’s feature on MBA programmes, “MBA courses: Investment or liability?”, Tuesday 22nd January 2013. There were many interesting questions from a myriad of professionals from various industries including engineering, legal and finance. Many were looking for a change in career after gaining significant experience in their initial industry. Questions ranged from visa and employability issues to returns on investment.
The panel was unanimous in agreeing that the experience shared, networks gained and skills learnt were all beneficial to MBA students. It is encouraging to read that there are so many professionals out there still keen to develop their skills and continue their learning journey. This would lead to the building of a knowledge economy.
