HOW DO I FIT IN?
MBA and Business students often drive strategy and business analysis with a strong focus on working with multiple stakeholders in the corporate world. For all industries, there is inevitable transformation taking place continuously where many aspects of digital technology, value chain and workflows along with organizational restructuring is causing immense amounts of change. Skills in consulting and implementation, end-to-end design thinking, problem solving, project management in an Agile fashion, strong communication, and effective teamwork are critical for facilitation in building consensus on direction, eventually helping companies in realizing their strategic vision and implementation of their 5-10 year roadmaps.
