"I believe an MBA is not about the immediate 1-3 year career growth payoff, but the way in which it impacts career trajectory over the next 5-15+ years. I view the MBA as future-proofing myself, through an investment in the diversity of my skills and frameworks, in a world of increasing pace and uncertainty.
For me, of particular note is the incredible friendships, network and personal insights I have experienced from being immersed in a brilliant cohort with broad professional and cultural diversity at the AGSM.
AGSM has provided me with an incredible chance to head to San Francisco on an international business experience study tour in December 2017, followed by a 5-month exchange at Wharton, the University of Pennsylvania in 2018. I can’t wait to embrace the opportunity to meet great international business minds and throw myself head first into the San Francisco and New York startup ecosystems."
"Careers helped me get that elusive internship in Private Equity!
A big lesson from the MBA is understanding and navigating the relationship-centric the Australian professional landscape. Even though I had relevant experience (albeit in Asia), I came up against multiple barriers in trying to find an in into the extremely small and well-connected space of Private Equity.
Speaking about my concerns with Careers, Barbara connected me with a specific alumnus to learn more about his journey. After a few discussions, he introduced me to his network and in a matter of weeks, I secured an internship with a Private Equity firm.
The value of the AGSM Careers team is in the network they maintain and how they can expertly leverage their great relationships and match people up based on their interests and aspirations.
Without a doubt, the Careers team is a cornerstone of the AGSM MBA value proposition."
"Like most of my classmates, I undertook the MBA to transform my career. My own personal journey was to transition from managing medium arts organisations to pursue a passion for strategy consulting. But education and grades alone won’t get any of us the job.
The AGSM Career Development team were integral in helping me achieve my goals. From early sense checking and advice to reviewing my resume and setting up valuable company introductions I was prepared to present myself in the best possible light through every step of the application process. When something is important to you, leave nothing to chance."
"The AGSM EMBA has significantly transformed how I view the world, my career and approach to problems. It is the lens to uncover potential and the methodology to drive it.
As a designer transitioning to strategy it has allowed me to link my creative self with an analytical frame. The Career Development Centre and wonderful staff have been vital in assisting me articulate my value offering, facilitating connections and guiding my approach to prospective opportunities."
