Marisja (INSEAD 2015), Head of International Business Development & Investor Relations, shares her thoughts on the MBA dream and what you can expect to find in an MBA career with Admiral.
“If you’re the type of person that can hold their own in a room with a couple of CEOs, then you’re probably already completing your MBA with your sights set on the dream job that will make it all worth it. The MBAs we are recruiting are likely to be the future leaders and CEOs of our businesses, who will make a difference to the success of the Admiral Group, and where we stand in 20 years’ time.
We know completing an MBA comes at a tipping point in your life where you are at the top of your game. We understand the risk and commitment that goes into giving all that up to go out there and improve to reach your dream. We understand the sacrifices MBAs have made to attend one of the top business schools in the world, how much time you have given up away from your families, and how you have moved to the other side of the world. All of this to achieve your dream, to find something where you can make a difference. Yes, completing an MBA is about building a successful career, but it’s also about making a real impact, and a real difference as a leader, driving and creating something special. That’s at the heart of an MBA.
I emptied my entire life savings to complete an MBA to hopefully one day find my dream job. I have found something better.
I remember thinking, I have to be a part of this company!
To come and work in a business like ours and report to the Group CEO, and work so closely with the Group CEO, that just doesn’t happen elsewhere. These jobs are not a steppingstone: these are the jobs with the opportunities you look for in the dream MBA career. We offer autonomy and exposure to work with and learn from the founders of the business and be part of something bigger. You will be promoted quickly, and you will own projects with a purpose, where you can really show us what you are made of. As an international organisation, you can also work on projects in other countries, learn from other cultures, and have the chance to really make an impact.”
