Expensive MBA programs are sought after for the value of its alumni network more so than the content of the program. As well as improving job prospects or accessing business opportunities, networking can provide the opportunity to: • create new relationships and build on existing relationships; • share knowledge and ideas; • gain and provide advice and support.
