How has/will this degree help you in your career?

The MBA program at the GSM has broadened my scope and allowed me to develop a deeper understanding of finance and marketing. Instead of becoming myopic, my perspective is able to understand the business at a global level. The program has also given me the opportunity to discover and learn of other possible career trajectories.
