Our Unique Approach - Custom Fit Career Development

Many students struggle with deciding on a post-career path to optimize their MBA experience. We help you determine the opportunities available, and then establish an initial plan- as soon as you begin the MBA program, not the end when it's too late. Whether you're coming into the MBA program with a plan in place, or you're hoping to pivot into a new passion, the Woodbury School of Business has a unique program that will test your theories and expand your idea of what's possible.


Your Individual Career Development Plan 

Once we determine your initial chosen path, we conduct a gap analysis to determine where you are today, and where you need to be at graduation to obtain your desired job. We will then augment your in-class MBA curriculum with unique skill-building activities, experiences, and networks that will prepare and differentiate you for your chosen career.
