Before the first term started we were already loaded with course information and list of required readings.
It became clear to me that the most important during the EMBA course will be the ability to navigate through this sea of available information and focus on the areas that are most relevant to me and my business.
The process that took place in my head while prioritizing my activities became a key learning experience of the EMBA programme so far – I had to define clear objectives for my professional aspirations in order to be able to successfully manage the priorities.
Of course, as most of the people, I couldn’t define the exact role or even the industry that I wanted to work in the future. It’s normal if you don’t know the answer to this question – during the EMBA programme you will receive sufficient support to help you concretize these goals.
Much more important is to use the preparation time to define your “own vision” for your professional life, the values you want to live your life, your inner “north pole”.
The sooner you have it the easier it will be for you to navigate through the EMBA programme and manage your life.
