The old saying knowledge is power is a classic saying for a reason…because it’s universally and eternally true! I can say with complete confidence that I could have advanced further in my career had I known sooner what I know now. I, like my circle of friends that range from influencers to authors, business owners to app developers, are in the constant pursuit of information that can help us make better decisions to achieve greater success - sooner, and with fewer bumps along the way. We’ve left no book unread, no workshop unattended, and let me tell you not all information is created equal. I want to see all women succeed so of course when I find a valuable resource I have to share it. One of those resources is a program that I am proud to say MsIndependent has supported for over 3 years - the QS World MBA Tour.
For anyone curious about embarking on an MBA program, this event has your name all over it. We’re talking you first, middle, and last name are written in bold on a beautifully wrapped box labeled QS World MBA Tour, open immediately, contents are time sensitive! Well, you get the idea.
