Breakout sessions

I was facing a career slump and wanted to eliminate the same with an MBA. What I was unaware of was that the MBA would end up changing both my professional and personal lives. Apart from updating my existing knowledge base, I got a chance to hone my leadership and communications skills which have done wonders for me.
