As an (aspiring) leader, you want to find the connection between career advancement and continuing to invest in yourself. What exactly can an Executive MBA (EMBA) offer you in this regard? Associate Professor Nicolas Chevrollier of Nyenrode Business University tells you all about the return on education: “You bring your business and management knowledge up to date, develop your leadership skills, and improve your self-knowledge. But perhaps the most valuable is the connection you build with yourself and your classmates. That is for life.”
The business world has become more complex, and job roles have become more dynamic and flexible. Especially with the Covid-19 virus. To succeed requires taking control, anticipation, building personal development in leadership, and information retrieval. Developing your career in this landscape means no only developing your leadership style, but also learning to base your management decisions on thorough academic rigor with the pursuit for practical relevance. Although the future is unclear, it still involves acting in advance working towards goals before achieving them. Undertaking an executive MBA (EMBA) can be a good way to do this.
