Earning an MBA is valuable in many careers and a proud accomplishment for graduates, however earning the degree itself is often not enough for career success - the true value comes in how you leverage what you learned! While pursuing the MBA, you are opening a doorway of opportunities to build knowledge, experience, and your professional network. This trio can often position you for career success - a promotion, a new career, or starting your own company. Our alumni panel will provide insight into how they were able to leverage their MBA experience in their careers and provide you some tips along the way. The session will begin with a panel discussion and transition into networking.
