Outside environment

One of the webinar’s hosts, Flavio Bishop Cabral from Unimy & Beyond Consulting, explained the main advantages of the UK for pursuing an MBA. As a business expert based in London, he has experienced the benefits of fully immersing yourself in an English-speaking environment. The fact that the UK, and London in particular, is a multicultural hotspot should not be underestimated by business managers aspiring to an international career.

Program content

Then, Julie Rosborough who is an MBA Course Leader at NTU dived deeper into the typical MBA journey of class participants at this UK university. What is the structure of the program and how are the different modules divided between semesters? What is the mix of theoretical studies and learning through practice? How personalized is the program? Prospective MBA applicants who need specific information about these questions can learn more from the webinar recording. It is useful to keep in mind that such details can play a role not only in helping to find the right degree for you, but they can also influence your MBA application strategy.

Career support

What is more, the webinar welcomed two more guests. Career consultant Kate Robins described the first-class career support offered at NTU. When preparing your MBA application, it is important to clarify your long-term career goals and to refer to them clearly throughout the application. Getting to know how different universities can help boost the employment prospects of their graduates is another important factor to consider.

Did you know that NTU provides personalized career support three years after graduation, either face-to-face, through video calls or via email? If you would like to find out more about this service, watch the webinar recording in full.

Alumni experience

Finally, you have the unique opportunity to hear directly from an NTU alumna – Nidhi Sudhan who currently works as insight analyst at Chelsea Football Club. Contacting successful graduates and asking about their impression of the program can give you the upper hand in the application process. For example, firsthand knowledge may help you find the right angle and focus for your application essay. Even more importantly, you can find inspiration about your future career goals.

So, whether you are still researching your business school options in the UK or you are already preparing your application package, this webinar can be insightful in more ways than one.
