When choosing an MBA program one of the most important aspects to consider is what are your career opportunities after graduation. This is becoming increasingly important in an increasingly VUCA world (volatile, uncertain, complex, ambiguous).
We took a deeper look into the Peking University National School of Development BiMBA program which is one of the best MBA programs in China. One of the strengths of the program is the special focus on career support. The program is available in full time and part time mode so you can have the option of working while studying.
Here are the five ways PKU-NSD can open endless opportunities for its MBA graduates:
1. Complete access to Career Development Department (CDD)
