I found that your online course and the exercises you have prepared were really helpful to me. They allowed me to better understand what my capacities, values and goals are, and from here, to build a better understanding of where I want to be in 5, 10 and 20 years’ time and which steps I need to take to make that possible. Thank you very much.

Based on my experience of working on career coaching topics with Warwick MBA students I’d say the site has everything they are likely to need in order to find the right career and get the interview and job. The videos which I thought bought things to life.

The quality of materials is excellent. I would have no hesitation in recommending the formats and information on the site.

FAQ's

What will I receive when I join the course?

You will receive log-in details to your own personalized area of our website where you can access the 10 audio visual modules and interactive exercises that make up the course; plus exclusive access to our online MBA community and career research resources.

How long does the course take to complete?

There is no set time limit as you can work through the 10 modules at your own pace. Most clients spend between 3-5 hours completing the course.

When should I do the course?

If possible, we recommend you complete the course before starting your MBA. That way you’ll start your MBA with a clear picture of your career strategy. This knowledge will give you the best opportunity to target your networking activities and tailor your course choices to achieve your career goals.

I’m already part-way through my MBA, is it too late to start the course?

It’s never too late! Getting clear on your career goals now will help you to make better choices for the remainder of your course, and be more targeted in your networking and job hunting activities.

I already have an MBA, is this the right course for me?

If you have already completed your MBA we recommend you use the Career Maximiser Course. Click here for more details.

Why do you recommend completing the MBA Maximiser course?

Many people do an MBA because they want to change career or maximize the prospects of achieving their ideal role. Our structured approach gives you a framework to define your career strategy and helps you to consistently evaluate the different options you are considering. Your MBA is likely to be one of the largest investments you make, the MBA Maximiser course will help to ensure you maximise the return on that investment.

Why don’t I just use a career coach?

High quality career coaching can be hugely beneficial; our consultants regularly provide this type of one-to-one service to MBA students at business schools across the UK and Europe, and the results can be exceptional. However a series of one-to-one sessions with a high quality coach can be prohibitively expensive. For less than the typical cost of just one hour with an experienced coach you will receive access to the entire MBA Maximiser course. If you later decide to work with a career coach to help you address a specific goal, the knowledge you gain from completing the MBA Maximiser course should reduce the time you need to spend with that coach – ensuring you get the best possible return from your overall investment.

How long does my access last?

Your access will last for 12 months from the point at which you purchase the course.

How does your money-back guarantee work?

You have big plans, we want to help you achieve them. Nothing gives us a bigger buzz than hearing about the successes of our clients. However we also understand that sometimes things don’t work out. If the course doesn’t meet your expectations then we’ll refund the purchase price to you in full. All that we ask is that you give the course a chance. For this reason our money-back guarantee lasts for 30 days from the date of purchase. If you’ve made the decision to join the course then we’re guessing you’re motivated to get started, and 30 days should give you plenty of time to get stuck in. There’s some small print relating to exchange rates, etc (and you can read that in our Terms and Conditions), but in essence the message is that if you've bought the course and it isn’t right for you we’ll give you your money back.

How is MBA Maximiser different from other courses out there?

There is no test or quiz on earth that has the sophistication to work out what career is right for you. Sometimes these types of tests can give you ideas, but only you can really work out what you want and what you have to offer.
Your career is too important for other people to tell you what to do. We help you work it out yourself. So when you interview you have compelling reasons for that job or career, and you have evidence to back up what you have to offer. The course is very practical and geared towards what recruiters want to know. It also offers a structured approach to make sense of the often confusing task of deciding on a career direction. With MBA Maximiser you will know what you need to find out to make a decision before even starting your MBA.
