EMBA Afterwork – Personal development

Purpose is belief in what you are doing, belief that what you are doing has a point, and belief that the point is a positive one for society. 

Participate for our upcoming roundtable discussion on personal development within MBA, hosted by Associate Professor Chris Dalton. In this engaging discussion, you’ll have the opportunity to connect with fellow professionals interested in starting the EMBA-journey and discuss the role of purpose from the perspective of yourself, your organisation and society.

As we navigate through these challenging times, it’s important to stay focused and grounded.

Join us for this insightful and interactive discussion and connect with other like-minded people. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to learn more about the programme and personal development as part of it.
