Executive MBA and the Entrepreneurial Pivot

Time 12 - 1 PM
Often Executive MBA students are considering a career pivot. The desire to pursue a new challenge may require an internal move or an external move depending upon the EMBA student’s desires.

In some cases, this career shift takes students down entrepreneurial paths that would have never been considered until their minds were opened via their EMBA experience. This session will address ways in which EMBAs pivot in their careers to start new ventures or embody the entrepreneurial spirit in their current organization.

Professor Charlie Goetz from Emory University’s Goizueta Business School will moderate the conversation. In this webinar, we will discuss:
  • How to develop an entrepreneurial mindset
  • How to determine when or when not to pivot to a new venture
  • Having the guts to pursue your dream
