Challenge: The Office of Career Management at a major university believes self-awareness is the key to better understanding the career paths that hold the highest potential for success.
Resolution: To accomplish this, all MBA students go on an introspective journey as they consider various career and industry options. This journey is underpinned by The Birkman Method®. Each student completes the online Birkman Method questionnaire within the first few weeks of school. Results are evaluated and reviewed individually. The results are then used throughout the class semester in various contexts and at increasingly deeper levels.
Success: Students who take full advantage of these personal growth opportunities leave the school with a more complete understanding of who they are and what they can bring to their organizations as leaders and team members. In the end, each student leaves with a unique competitive advantage: the self-awareness and professional presence needed to plan and manage a life-long career.
