‘MBA Applied’ is targeted for chapter members to address their career and professional development needs. In addition, through professional development sessions, ‘MBA Applied’ allows a member to apply their advanced degree skills in areas where their “day-job” may not allow, fostering continuous improvement of key leadership skills. The specific goal of the program is to conduct four 2-hour long sessions annually. For example, in the first hour we will discuss business principles across multiple disciplines such as leadership, strategy and finance, which are relevant to the current business environment. The second hour will consist of applying the principles presented during the first hour with the use of experiential learning formats, discussions, articles and multimedia.
