Your personal, professional and career development sessions

This module focuses on developing soft skills and my experience with it has been great. It allows me to polish my networking and negotiation skills, amongst other highly valuable skills. The Sheffield MBA involves attending events with a diverse group of students, providing opportunities to network and build professional connections which will be valuable throughout my career. In order to pursue an MBA, don't think you need an exact plan of what you are doing in your career. Be stubborn on your vision, but flexible on the details. The soft skills you learn can be applied in absolutely everything you decide to do in your life, even if it involved a 180° change in career direction.
