Speaker 1:

My background is structural engineering, but recently I was also a design team leader. But what I wanted to do is actually to change my career more into business perspective. So that’s why I came here.

Speaker 2:

With the MBA and where it’s taking me in my career, it’s primarily into the entrepreneurial world, but also meeting people that can challenge me in a way that directs me where I want to be.

Speaker 3:

I’m really interested in management consulting. I’m interested in corporate strategy and thinking about how we can position our businesses of today such that they can be really additive in society of tomorrow.

Speaker 4:

One of the best learnings that I would say was working with people from different demographics and different countries and different backgrounds.

Speaker 5:

I learned a lot about myself, what are my natural skills and what I’m not naturally good at.

Speaker 2:

The MBA is so crucial in terms of an investment you make into your career. It’s vital that you are who you are, and you match to the MBA that actually suits what you’re looking for.

Speaker 6:

I come from a finance background and I knew that I wanted to explore other industries. This was a great opportunity to know that I’m very interested in the healthcare industry, to get some exposure. Going forward I’m probably going to continue down that path.

Speaker 7:

I was very proud of this one year training and journey. I think one thing I uncovered about myself is about my potential for leadership and how to solve conflicts.

Speaker 8:

I think the skill I benefitted most and that I will take into my future career is the skill to communicate in a multicultural environment. 

Speaker 5:

I was coming from a consulting background and I was used to working with the same type of people. And I didn’t realise that there are other people who think totally differently. Being able to work with these different types of people is an extremely valuable skill to have.

Speaker 9:

During the MBA, I believe that they’re giving me very strong tools to move on in my career to address some of the issues that our society is facing. It’s a very practical experience in a really good way.

Speaker 10:

One of the best classes that I took was Management Praxis II, the negotiations part. And I think that was just so exciting to really see how your skillset and your personality works in that role.

Speaker 11:

Coming from a finance background, I find one of the skills that I’ve learned through the MBA curriculum is the Lean and Six Sigma thinking, which I had not been exposed to. But after learning about this, I find that I have a new understanding of how business is run.

Speaker 12:

The Cambridge experience is different. The Cambridge experience is global.

Speaker 5:

I think the beauty of the MBA is that you never live two days in the same way.

Speaker 9:

This is a very diverse place, but it’s also a very unique place. Taking advantage of those people that seem to be pursuing very different career paths, really enriches your experience of the MBA.

Speaker 10:

Really enjoy every moment of it. 

Speaker 5:

I would say, be prepared to experience the best year of your life.
