Career development journey
Knowing that the most effective way to make a career change is to begin early, the RSM MBA Career Centre recommends the following approach.
A step in the right direction
From the word ‘go’ we will help you assess your strengths, address areas of improvement and define your career roadmap.
There are many reasons why someone makes the choice to embark on an MBA at RSM:
- to experience working with a diverse group of people
- to learn the fundamentals of business
- to improve soft skills such as emotional intelligence and methods to persuade and influence.
But you will often come to the core reason of why you applied for an MBA – and that’s to further your career development. This usually means that, post-MBA, there is a desire to make a career change, whether it be a functional, industry or location change.
Making an effective career changes involves, simultaneously and continually, an investment of time and energy in these essential areas:
- Deepening your self-awareness
- Exploring the market
- Developing your network
- Composing your self-marketing
- Upgrading your career skills
To develop these areas, you will be given tools, guidance and opportunities to practise. You don’t have to do this alone. Throughout the entire programme, you are supported by peers and coaches, who ensure continual progress, learning and development. Finally, we encourage you to engage with the marketplace and put the things you’ve learned into practice.

Whether you are still searching for the perfect career or know exactly what you want to do post-MBA, the Career Centre team provides multiple opportunities throughout the year to find your ideal job.

It has opened my eyes to the wider business world and exposed me to the diverse cultures in the cohort. Boskalis is an international firm, so I worked with many cultures already. But there are around 40 nationalities in the MBA, and everyone has diverse professional backgrounds too. This helped me broaden my perspectives and see problems from different angles. This is really useful when I work with people with different opinions in the future.
