Today’s a great day! Pepperdine University invited me to write a guest column for their blog, the Graziadio Voice. The title of the column is, “Business School Shifts Your Career Into High Gear.”
In it, I encourage those in business school to take advantage of the many opportunities available – including making career transitions.
I earned my MBA from Pepperdine University, so the school holds a special place for me. Below is an excerpt. Check out the entire column here.
When professionals make the move to go to business school, they often have big plans for the future. After all, you’re investing a lot of time, energy and financial resources into the program. It ought to be for a good reason, right?
Whether you’re looking for a promotion at your current job or want to switch careers altogether, now is the time to do it. The question is how? When I attended the Graziadio School at Pepperdine, I found this to be one of the hurdles my classmates and I faced.
George Eliot once said, “It is never too late to be what you might have been.” I’m a strong believer in this principle, and business school is the perfect time to make a change.
