1. MBA Graduates: Start Preparing For Your Next Job Now
“You’ve graduated from a top MBA program. You are excited about your job, but you also know that a lot of people leave their first, post-MBA job within a few years. While most of your effort should go toward success in the first job, it is good to be prepared to move should you decide to do so. But what can you do now so that when you want to switch jobs (or careers), you can?”
2. The Fight for Female MBAs
“In 2015, when Divinity Matovu was preparing to enter the full-time MBA program at the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School, she was caring for her 3-year-old daughter, grieving her mother’s death, and going through a divorce. ‘I was very concerned about whether I’d be able to pull this off and actually do the program,’ she says.”
3. More Students Are Choosing Tech MBAs Over Traditional B-School Degrees
“MBAs were once persona non-grata in the technology industry but, in recent years, tech companies have attracted more and more MBAs with offers of choice leadership roles.”
