Employment opportunities

In academic learning we often refer to knowledge or understanding something new. Whilst this is a key part of the MBA, it is not the entirety. We refer to skills which, when applied in context, become valuable competencies. It is a combination of what you know - the knowledge, and what you can do - the competencies, that are ultimately key in determining your employability.

For example, can you:
-Take an aerial view of business operations and assess the strategic rather than tactical implications of market dynamics and leadership decisions as they impact business performance?
-Understand the subtlety that exists within business organisations, and not just the structure but also how networks, both formal and informal, operate?
-Understand how organisation cultures impact, evolve and, critically, sometimes resist?
-Operate under pressure without all the information to hand and in situations where you have to make decisions which might have far reaching consequences?
-Take a customer perspective, so that you provide the customer (both internal and external) with what is required, even when you have to manage unrealistic expectations?

Finally:
-Do you have a career plan? Having ambition and the ability to plan achievement of your ambition is a key management and leadership competency.
