Following the previous post titled, 5 Things I wish I knew at the start of my MBA, someone pointed out on the Adelaide MBA Alumni LinkedIn Group that I was doing well to only have five things. They were right, my list was originally ten but could have easily been many more.
Studying an MBA is a long journey. Juggling a career, family and study can be tough going. There’s a joke that MBA stands for ‘married but absent’ and at times it certainly feels that way. Like many journeys there are a few things I wish I knew at the start, and that’s what this post is about. Here are the five things I wish I knew when starting my MBA study:
“Our face to face class delivery model provides a rich learning environment, allowing participants to formulate innovative approaches to real world leadership challenges and complex issue.” – Damian Scanlon, Program Director
Jenal Dhar is currently studying a Masters of Business Administration. In 2018, she completed her exchange to the European Business School. She spent two weeks in Wiesbaden and one week in Berlin, Germany.
Congratulations to Adelaide MBA students Jack Lee, Brent Alexander and Sean O’Gorman who won the 2019 Global Family Enterprise Case Competition held at the University of Vermont Grossman School of Business earlier this month.

So why are so many people still convinced that MBA studies are a worthy investment and a necessary step in the pursuit of a successful career in business? If you are curious here are 5 key reasons why you should complete a MBA.
If you are engaged in the modern business world you will have almost certainly encountered the Master of Business Administration, or more commonly known as the MBA before. These three letters globally represent a postgraduate degree that supposedly gives those who possess the qualification the necessary skills and knowledge to lead and manage organisations. But what does the degree actually entail? How does one learn such a broad range of skills in such a relatively short space of time?
Chances are you have heard the word ‘mindfulness’ before. But what could that possibly have to do with business?
