Most MBAs take traditional career paths in finance, consulting or corporate leadership. But a growing cohort are looking to break free to become masters of their own destiny, change the world, and build their own career path.
The MBA path isn’t as simple as it used to be. It’s still certainly one of the most powerful strategies for catapulting your success in life--but only if you know how to leverage it.
The future is dependent on pioneers like YOU, who have the capability to share their vision to deploy new technologies. Innovation is the key to our shared future, and MBA entrepreneurs like you can play a key role in ensuring that the human race is able to innovate swiftly to solve some of society’s biggest challenges in sustainability and beyond.
