For this session, we focus on Professional Development and host a panel discussion with:

Our MBA Relationship Manager, Copil Yáñez, will moderate, and all three will be on hand to answer your questions about Professional Development and the EMBA.

Professional Development

Professional Development is a for-credit course, an unusual distinction in MBA programmes, and a sign of how seriously we take your skills development. As part of the course, you will study the habits of success taught by business leaders and recognised industry experts who share their experiences in the classroom.

You will also work with leading-edge diagnostic tools and engage in one-to-one feedback sessions as you build your own self-awareness and confidence.

The Professional Development programme includes opportunities to further hone your skills in:

  • Presentation skills and public speaking
  • Skills of debate and persuasion
  • Effective influence in the boardroom
  • Working with impact in high-performing teams
  • Project management
  • Negotiation skills
  • Consulting skills
  • Stakeholder communications
  • Crisis communications

We have an excellent track record in supporting our students to progress in their business career in a wide range of organisations, from startup ventures to multinational corporations.
