You can manage fast paced major growth, transformation, innovation and operational change in any country and business discipline area or have the options to start your own business. You develop insights across the top discipline functions such as finance, strategy, economics, project management, marketing, leading and managing people, supply chain and new business creation. These are all disciplines from which you rapidly acquire the skills, knowledge and application ability to manage all of them together to push growth. Many businesses rely on individuals with knowledge of all of these essential disciplines to drive change, transformation and innovation with the ultimate aim of steering the business constantly towards success. Many known high street brands, service industries, online businesses, high growth start ups and new innovation markets require quick turnaround thinking and problem solving ability to utilise existing or new teams very quickly and make these decisions. You may have been employed within a sector undergoing a real transformation which is constantly under threat from external factors.

In this situation you can overcome the threats quickly to ensure long term viability of a business whilst managing short term risks to business. You can be a very sought after individual due to your ability to quickly assess what needs to be done with minimum impact to allow for long term profitability. Many brands have recently been disrupted by mass communications and the rapid rise in online trading, some were able to quickly re-organise their business model to avoid going out of business, some were able to innovate and others relied on a wide variety of techniques to allow them to reinvent themselves. MBA positions are normally fast paced but very rewarding in terms of achievements and business satisfaction you gain from complex challenges often at global level.
