You may be considering whether an executive course is relevant for you. Should you take time off to do a full MBA with a specialization in finances or do you even need new tools to manage you work? In this blog post we will lay down the 7 most important reasons for embarking on a Mini MBA executive course.
1 – Grow alongside your career
You want to advance your career, but imagine what would happen if you left your job for an education to return a year later. Would there be any significant changes to the industry? Well yes. Unless you work in the bespoke-horse-carriage-industry the market moves with the speed of light and technology even faster. You’d be miles behind, trying to catch up, maybe not being welcome at your old job anymore. This is why many managers choose executive courses that can be done alongside their work.
Your power, influence and title have all become temporary assets that you cannot take for granted. You need to constantly invest in yourself and your skills to stay relevant in the ever-changing world of business. We live in an information society where everyone needs to be willing to adapt and be flexible and up-to-date with the trends and business-related news. Technological advances make it possible to work independently of time and space. A limitless work life has gained ground, and it makes us more innovative, efficient and productive. However, it also brings a number of challenges because when family life, spare time, work and finding the time to develop your skills all need to be taken care of, it can affect the work life balance. But do not give up. There are lots of good tips and some of them are given here by Lars Hoffmann, a danish Business Psychologist (photo on the right.)
