The city is also home to one of the UK’s best educational establishments, Nottingham Business School (NBS).

The discussion focused on job opportunities in the UK, and networking events Nottingham Business School offers.

Job opportunities in the UK

Living and working in the UK offers many networking opportunities, explains Flavio Bishop Cabral, who studied and worked in London. The network he forged there helped him build his career, and introduced him to people from all walks of life. The multiculturalism and diversity of the UK allowed Flavio to establish long-lasting connections with HR professionals from some of the biggest international companies. He believes this same exposure to diversity is what makes Nottingham Business School such a great place to start your Masters journey, and your future career.

What is the ideal candidate for the EADA MBA and EMBA programs? What qualities are the school looking for when it screens applicants? In this episode, Laetitia Rella, Admissions Manager at EADA Business School, discusses the benefits of the EADA MBA and EMBA programs, and how you can develop your leadership potential. You will also learn which program is the best fit for you at this stage.

  • Candidates should ask as many questions as possible during their interview. It shows that applicants have researched the program and the school, and they identify with the business school. Asking questions during the interview shows proactiveness and a willingness to be part of a certain program.
  • Lack of self-awareness is one of the many misjudgments prospects make. Another very common mistake is to neglect to mention personal shortcomings in terms of soft skills, and how one can overcome them.
  • EADA have a variety of scholarship options with different recipient criteria, mostly based on your GPA and GMAT scores. Laetitia adds:

A candidate is not only a GPA or a GMAT score. A candidate is a leadership, a potential, what you’ve done in your career, your international exposure. All those things would be taken into consideration during the admissions’ process, and during the scholarship.
