Important Question for MBA and Executive MBA applicants, or anyone thinking of making a major investment in their future by applying to Business School:
How do you measure the return on your MBA?
By the quality of your career after you graduate
If there was a systematic, step-by-step process to improve your job prospects and earning potential after the MBA…
Would you use it?
Here’s why anything short of an emphatic “yes” could seriously derail your career ambitions and your earning potential
Every year the most exciting and innovative companies across the world look to recruit MBAs who can help take their business to the next level.
The question is...
Will they be recruiting you?
With thousands of Business Schools worldwide and hundreds of thousands of MBAs being awarded each year, the competition for these jobs is global - and it's never been fiercer. Making the commitment to do an MBA and being accepted onto a course is a great step forward in your career, but if you're going to justify all that time, effort and expense you have to get strategic now about identifying and targeting the job you want on graduation.
Because if you don't, your competition will.
Some of your best opportunities to secure the future career
you want will come before your MBA even starts.
For years the students I work with at Business Schools have been frustrated that they've left their career planning too late, leaving themselves with not enough time to prepare properly for early applications or to take advantage of networking opportunities. The time to do this initial preparation is NOW.
And that's why I've put together this MBA Maximiser course and private Facebook group. I've taken all of the experience I've gathered from working with students from over 30 Business School - in workshops, one-to-ones, and group sessions - and poured it all into this programme.
It's a step-by-step proven method that can save you time and increase your chances of getting the job you want after the MBA.
All my experience shows that candidates who invest early in their careers, and adopt the strategy set out in the Maximiser course are more likely to get the career outcomes they want than those who don't.
So it's your choice, which candidate do you want to be?
Module 1 - Self assessment
Why you need a career strategy
Work environment & managers
Module 2 - Evaluating Options
Module 3 - Targeting Opportunities

+ your downloadable Personalised Career Strategy Report

As well as being there to help with your questions about the course, I’ll be running regular Q&A sessions where you can raise any challenges you're facing with your career strategy.
The group will also be a great place to get a head-start on your alumni network - making connections and getting support from like-minded MBA applicants equally committed to career success.

The short answer is, "yes"
The longer answer is, "absolutely, definitely, without a doubt, yes"
Apart from the fact that many of the big MBA employers start their recruitment early in the first term, here are just a few reasons why you need to be using the time you have now to implement your career strategy....

I worked with Rachel a couple of years ago when she was doing her MBA. Following the course she secured her dream job in new business development - here's her take on why it's so important to start your career planning as early as possible...

I had the privilege of being coached by Jane during my MBA. The most useful part for me was the MBA Maximiser. It helped me narrow down on my ideal company and highlighted how I can use my skills to flourish in my career.
'Outstanding' is the word that comes to mind when I think about coaching session with Jane and the resources she provided to me.
The MBA maximiser helped me to define the skills I am good at and enjoy using, my interests and core values. I was then able to understand what kind of career and work environment will be right for me.
I highly recommend the MBA maximiser to everyone who needs guidance through the career decision-making journey.
Being coached by Jane was, without a doubt, one of the parts that added more value to my MBA experience. The coaching in terms of CV, career path and interviews approach were something that really helped me to "re-discover" myself in terms of what do I want for my future and how do I want to achieve it.
Overall, it was a great experience!
Working with Jane was an excellent experience, encouraging me to choose a career I'm really passionate about.
I trust her judgement and guidance, and the Maximiser course gave me some real evidence and data that helped me to see where I can add value in the healthcare arena.
Here’s the Number 1 Reason to grab your place on the MBA Maximiser course right now…
The best time to start your MBA career planning was yesterday, the next best time is today!
I want you to start your course knowing that you’ve got your career planning completely on track, ready for early applications and alive to every networking opportunity that presents itself.
An MBA is likely to be one of the biggest investments of time, effort and money you make in your professional life, don’t leave it to chance!
As seen in:
The first two modules of the course can be done quite quickly as they are very much about self-reflection. If you put time aside you can probably get these exercises done in an afternoon, but you might want to give yourself a bit longer than that - as to really get the best results you may want reflect over a period of time. The third module is a bit different and is there to support you while you make connections and applications. So that's more open-ended - think of it as a resource you can call on as and when you need it.
The Report pulls together all of your answers to the various exercises, giving you a permanent record of the work you've done to establish your career strategy. It also contains explanations of why your answers to the various exercises are so important when you are making future career decisions.
It’s never too late! Getting clear on your career goals now will help you to make better choices for the remainder of your course, and be more targeted in your networking and job hunting activities.
If you have already completed your MBA I recommend you use the Career Maximiser course. You can find out more about that at www.careermaximiser.com
High quality career coaching can be hugely beneficial; our Career Farm consultants regularly provide this type of one-to-one service to MBA students at business schools across the UK and Europe, and the results can be exceptional. However a series of one-to-one sessions with a high quality coach can be prohibitively expensive. After you've done the MBA Maximiser course, if you later decide to work with a career coach to help you address a specific goal, the knowledge you gain from completing the course should reduce the time you need to spend with your coach – ensuring you get the best possible return from your overall investment.
Your access to the online course starts as soon as you complete the checkout. From then, it will last for 12 months. However all of the course materials (exercises, transcripts, videos, audios, etc) are downloadable for you personal use - so effectively you have lifetime access to the course materials.
There is no test or quiz on earth that has the sophistication to precisely identify the perfect career for you. Sometimes these types of tests can give you ideas, but only you can really work out what you want and what you have to offer.
Your career is too important for other people to tell you what to do. The MBA Maximiser course will give you a structure to work it out yourself. The level of clarity and self-knowledge will mean that when you are interviewing you will have compelling reasons to be considered for that job or career, and you will have evidence to back up what you have to offer. This is much MUCH more powerful than applying for roles because an algorithm thought it might be the right thing for you.
The course is very practical and geared towards what recruiters want to know. It also offers a structured approach to make sense of the often confusing task of deciding on a career direction. With MBA Maximiser you will know what you need to find out to make that decision before even starting your MBA.
The figures in red are worked out based on us working together to achieve the same goals either in one-to-one or group coaching. So it's an estimate of the hours we would spend together, costed at the different rates I charge in my private coaching practice.
You can choose to pay by instalments and spread the cost of the course over 3 payments. The first payment of £115 will be taken immediately, after which you will have full access to the course. The second two payments of £115 each will then be invoiced to you at the start of the next two months.
For example: if you make your first payment in January, the second payment will be invoiced to you in February and the the third payment will be invoiced to you in March.
You have big plans, I want to help you achieve them. Nothing gives me a bigger buzz than hearing about the successes of my clients. However I also understand that sometimes things don’t work out. If the course doesn’t meet your expectations then I will refund the purchase price to you in full. All that I ask is that you give the course a chance. For this reason the money-back guarantee lasts for 30 days from the date of purchase. If you’ve made the decision to join the course then I'm guessing you’re motivated to get started, and 30 days should give you plenty of time to get stuck in. There’s some small print relating to exchange rates, etc (and you can read that here), but in essence the message is that if you've bought the course and it isn’t right for you I will give you your money back.
TRY IT FOR 30 DAYS WITH OUR "TRY IT, APPLY IT" MONEY BACK GUARANTEE
Your MBA will be one of the most important investments of your life, don't leave the outcome to chance!
