"Lisbon provided an amazing cultural experience."
I undertook the MBA to shift my career from technical management roles into commercial leadership positions. After looking at a number of programs I chose The Lisbon MBA because I wanted a strong program but which recognised the importance of soft-skills in being an effective leader. Most programs underestimate the importance of soft skills in effective leadership.
I wasn’t disappointed. In addition to the focus on soft skills, the small, intimate classes provide focussed learning and interaction that you don’t get in larger programmes. With the summer internship, I was able to get to know a potential employer and new industry sector without having to commit to employment which was invaluable given my goal of switching sectors.
Outside of the classroom, Lisbon provided an amazing cultural experience.
The MBA expanded my knowledge into completely new areas. It gave me new skills that allowed me to launch into a commercial management career and be a more effective leader. On a personal level it has also been a great investment, making me a better personal investor.
