Be clear about your ultimate goals and see if the course fits with this.

What is your fondest memory from your time at the Business School?
Access to the latest opinions and research concerning health management.

How has the Business School helped develop your career?
It allowed me to change trajectories from being a clinician to being a manager in health, and has subsequently given me credentials and authority now that I am back to being a clinician again. It has given me ambitions to start my own business, which is my ultimate goal.

They advised me in improving my CV and supplied me with sample interview scenarios. They also performed mock interviews with me and helped me gain access to many resources to help applications for jobs in a new domain.

I like to attend the Professional Interest Networks if I can: I find they are a good way to gain topical information and meet others involved in similar areas. I like to think that one day I might benefit from contacts made at these events.
