Business Interview Apparel. Conversation with G. Appelbaum
Filed under: Interviewing, Leadership, Observ. Trends, Alternate Career Paths
Posted by: site admin @ 7:56 am

This past week, I met with an Associate Dean of the
School of Management of my alma mater, Gwen Appelbaum. 
She was highlighted in a previous blog about managing a
presentation.

Gwen shared a terrific program that has high value
for MBAs, LeaderCore, which advocates ten “competencies”.
Interestingly, this program is a certificate program to better
prepare leaders of the future. 

We talked about trends in MBA education, like
 - one year MBA programs [seems awfully “shoehorned”
for preparing people for business leadership. ie., trying
to squeeze too much into one year.],
  - PhDs going on for MBAs [seems fine for certain areas
in entrepreneurial activities, but LeaderCore may be a better
training]
  - guidance for what to wear in business situations. [Gwen
sent me a link containing images of appropriate women’s and
men’s apparel
.]

We explored win-win opportunities in other areas as well.
Professionals take the opportunity to meet leaders in
other disciplines for their perspectives and trends they
see.
