You will see a marked improvement on your day-to-day performance, confidence and learning in the workplace, as well as improvements in your ability to demonstrate new skills learnt during the course of your studies. By combining experience with new management thinking developed over the lifetime of the MBA, you will see improvements in decision making, contributions to idea generation and business improvement.

It is expected that MBA graduates will have an improved career trajectory and be able to move more quickly and with confidence up the career ladder. Importantly, many MBA graduates have used the confidence and skills they have developed on the programme to achieve their aspirations and move across sectors and industry boundaries. Another benefit of studying for your MBA at the Liverpool Business School is the network you can join. This enables alumni and staff to continue building meaningful, long-term relationships beyond the classroom.
