For four or five years you have given it your all. You’re about to graduate or you just got that hard-earned master’s degree. Now what? Backpacking and traveling around the world is not an interesting option right now. Looking for a job might not be easy in the current economic climate.
Well, here’s the perfect solution for you: take another master’s program at Antwerp Management School – AMS, an international business school in the heart of Europe: meet the world in your class room and find out what kind of career would fit you. Hello world, here you come!
Worried about spending yet another year in school and losing out on the rest of your life? Don’t, here are four reasons why an extra year means extra job and growth opportunities:
1. Putting theory into practice
Don’t expect to be sitting in an auditorium, taking notes yet again. Every program at AMS is about preparing yourself for the business world. Professors will provide you with a theoretical framework while guest lecturers give you first-hand insight into everyday business. And since you learn the most by doing, you team up with your fellow students to work on real life business cases and an in-company project instead of writing a classical thesis.
2. Kickstarting your career
We engage with both local and international businesses and we will give you first-hand opportunities to meet your future employer: you get to go on company visits, participate in job fairs, career speed dating events, work on an in-company project, and make use of our extensive and impressive network of alumni who work at leading companies worldwide.
3. Growing as a person and as a future leader
At AMS, you will embark on a personal development journey. With the Global Leadership Skills track, we challenge and coach you to become more aware of who you are, how you cooperate with others, and what kind of career you want to pursue. Today’s employers are looking for exactly the same set of soft skills you will develop during the GLS track: self-awareness, the ability to work collaboratively with others, leadership skills, openness to and respect for different perspectives, multicultural awareness. Thus, you become a real asset to your future employer.
4. International environment: working in a global context
Globalization has become part of daily business life. Even local businesses are not just ‘local’ anymore. Thus, knowing how to deal with a variety of backgrounds and cultures is key, which makes graduates with multicultural competences in high demand. At AMS, you will connect with participants and companies from all over the world. You will be introduced to the particular challenges and rewards of doing business in a global context and prepare you for a high-level career.
