Where will your MBA take you?

This new Linked In Group is called ‘Beyond MBA’ which helps MBA students to link with MBA alumni. The group was formed after the exciting Speed Date with the Boss event run on Friday 22nd February by MGSM social club group thanks to MBA student Adriana Xavier Francisco. I was an invited guest alumni from the Built Environment sphere along with several other alumni from various other industries.

This group is for MBA students who are seeking a pathway forward in life beyond their MBA. The MBA is more than an elite management course, it is a catalyst and inspiration for moving forward toward an Agile Life Path. It helps to gain confidence and courage and can take you from employment to your own business and on to entrepreneurial ventures or to places you never dreamed.

The group mixes and places students with alumni mentors from diverse industries and provides orientation to Australian industry and their associated cultures and practices. Local and International students are able to interact as well to provide orientation and connection to national and international industries and customs.

Here is the group link:


You need to be a current or past MBA to join the group and have a spirit of helping to mentor and assist the process of learning and advancement.

I look forward to seeing you in the group.
