What was your reason(s) for pursuing an MBA?
My professional career has always been focused on Marketing, and I was at a moment where I wanted to cover the basics again and gain a knowledge toolbox that would give a 360-degree view of the business. I believe that the Copenhagen MBA was the perfect next-step for my professional and personal life. I took this opportunity as a personal challenge by moving to Denmark and kick-starting my career abroad.
What advice would you give to someone considering an MBA?
My advice to MBA seekers is to know what you want out of your MBA, and to make sure that you are ready to commit to the year-long journey. You have to ask yourself what the end goal is because there are ups and downs throughout the year, and at some point you might question if it was a good decision to take a year off from your professional life. It’s helpful to return to the intentions you set when the journey becomes challenging.
How has the Leadership Discovery Process been an impactful aspect of the Copenhagen MBA?
I’ve really liked the Leadership Discovery Process. Through this module we have developed an understanding of our own awareness as leaders.
