About This Webinar

Gone are the days when a bachelor’s degree was enough to set a graduate up for a long and fulfilling career. Today, careers are not only projected to extend with life expectancy, but career switching and having multiple vocations is on the rise, as is the competition to find ways in which to stand out from the mainstream.

Millennials (commonly defined as those born between 1982 and 2004) will, on average, change jobs four times in their first 10 years after graduating, twice as much as their predecessors, the ‘Gen-Xers’.

Indeed, a principal advantage of attending business school is the MBA’s potential to inject the skills and know-how that can enable a career change, and approximately 40% of students take the qualification precisely because this is one of their primary objectives, according to the QS Applicant Survey 2015.  

An MBA program’s delivery of general management skills required by most, if not every organization, enables graduates to explore their options across a wider range of sectors, giving them significantly greater flexibility. Another reason the MBA is a favorite among those looking at career change is the international prestige the qualification carries among employers, and its promise to deliver on high quality networking opportunities (especially at an elite business school).
