Could an MBA benefit your career? This Toronto event can help you find out

It’s official: Adulting has the power to leave you more confused than you ever were as a teenager. In your teens, you knew exactly what you wanted to study at university, and the career you wanted to pursue after graduation. Fast-forward to 2019, now you’re a twenty or thirty-something who wants to start over.

Sure, it feels kind of nerve-wracking — but that’s natural. You know you’re ready to make a change and work in an industry that will allow you to live more comfortably, shop designer brands, and explore all of the spots on your bucket list. We’re talking about the business world, Torontonians.

Chances are, many of your friends are already thriving in careers as product managers, consultants, and analysts. And since Canada’s tech industry continues to grow, so do the number of high-salary positions waiting to be filled. So why should you get left behind in a job that you don’t like?

When time is of the essence, getting an MBA is the best way to get started in business if you aren’t already, quickly move your way up the career ladder at your current company (if you like it, of course), or earn the kind of salary you deserve. And the QS World MBA Tour is the perfect event to have all of your MBA questions answered.

To give you an idea of salaries, PayScale reports that the average pay for all MBA grads is $81,000, and can reach up to $100,000. Could you work with that?

Aside from developing your skills, giving you the opportunity to gain relevant work experience, and helping you make key business connections, an MBA sets the foundation for you to become a business owner down the line if you want to. (Don’t lose sight of that game-changing idea you have just yet!)

Not to mention the fact that having an MBA from a top business school looks amazing on your resume. This educational experience can do some of the groundwork for you before you even enter the interview room. What could be better than that?

But before you get to that stage, let’s focus on the present.

You’ve got the opportunity to meet face-to-face with admissions directors from the world’s top local and international business schools, here in Toronto, on June 23 at the QS World MBA Tour. You’ll be able to get advice on your applications, a resume review, as well as a free professional LinkedIn headshot so you can say goodbye to the selfie you currently have on your profile (sorry).

To make the whole thing even better, you’ll also be eligible to apply for a pool of scholarships worth up to, wait for it… $7 million USD to help finance your MBA! So if you’re on the fence about whether to pursue your MBA, this is one event that you need to add to your calendar right now so that you can get all of your MBA questions answered.
