How do I advance my professional career when you’re in a position?
When taking your professional career to the next level, there are a few levers you can pull: an advanced degree, expanded skills, more professional experience, and a larger network, to name a few. But, what if there was a way to do all of these things in one push?
That’s the value of an MBA program, but not all programs are created equal. A program’s reputation, the expertise of their teaching and administrative staff, and the diversity of their student body are all elements that can determine the degree to which an MBA has the power to grow your potential.
There are many good reasons for you to start an MBA program at SHULU. Here are the top ten to consider.
1: Compliment your existing experience, knowledge, and expertise
Many professionals believe that the experience they have gained so far is sufficient to get them where they want to go. But this is often not the case. The business world is constantly changing. The skills of those working in this field must adapt to meet the needs of global businesses. A high-quality MBA program offers a curriculum that evolves with the business world. However, it must also be tailored to the student’s expertise, with a curriculum and course trajectory that builds on existing knowledge.
2: Expand your network through an effective MBA program
The term “network” has a broad meaning and covers many important elements of building a professional career. It concerns not only the people you have worked with, but also your international exposure to people and trends in your field.
3: Expand your skills base
Developing your skills not only helps you find new career opportunities, but also helps you thrive in a multitude of professional landscapes.
4: Learn your ABCs
Management and leadership disciplines use a basic psychological needs theory which says that everyone requires the satisfaction of three basic needs, or the ABCs, which are:
- Autonomy: “I’m free to decide, and express my ideas and opinions.”
- Belonging: “I like interacting with people, and I have the mutual support of people who care about me.”
- Competence: “I’m good at what I do. I feel a sense of accomplishment, and I’m learning interesting things.”
To become a successful manager and leader requires understanding how these ABCs work.
5: Get a personalized learning experience
The goal is to provide each student with the personal attention that allows them to develop in and out of the classroom, both as a professional and as an individual.
6: Add a highly-respected advanced degree to your portfolio
An MBA program is more than an accolade, it’s proof positive of your ability to learn complex concepts, meet deadlines, and execute on your goals. But when you put it on your CV, you want to ensure it comes from a well-respected institution.
7: Meet some fantastic new people!
Beyond the development of a network previously mentioned, it is also and above all a human adventure that allows you to meet different paths and rich in experiences. It also means being confronted with opposing ideas and points of view. It’s especially an opportunity to meet people that will allow you to develop and expand your business vision.
8: Get job experience
Though theory and concepts are an important foundation for increasing an understanding of global business, it’s also a well-known fact that you can’t learn to swim by reading a book.
9: Complete your MBA at your own pace, around your work schedule.
Life happens, whether you’re getting your MBA or not. In addition, a part-time Executive MBA program should allow students to follow a program at their own pace, with an average completion time of 2 years.
10: Be at the centre of it all
