Following an approach by a Said Business School MBA student, MBN’s Head of Business Development, Rob Huggins delivered a presentation focused on “Careers in Analytics”.
MBN had been invited to present by Ullash Hazarika who is currently undertaking the MBA programme at Said and is also a previous candidate with MBN Solutions. A long-term business contact of Rob and MBN’s CEO, Michael Young, Ullash was keen for MBN to share experiences in respect of the state of the labour market in this important sector.
Rob’s presentation was structured in two sections, the first focused on current trends and opportunities within the Analytical disciplines of Data Science, Insight, Econometrics and Financial Analytics. The second section saw Rob deliver a series of practical hints and tips for both undergraduates and MBA students on how they can maximise their employment prospects upon their entry or return to the market.
Many of the practical and pragmatic areas covered by Rob are based on activities and subject matter used within the MBN Academy to help businesses identify their next generation staffing and leadership requirements. Additionally, our Academy also engages with staff at all levels of seniority and uses feedback and commentary to help inform and determine the likely trends for future roles and employment prospects.
The presentation was enthusiastically received, with students engaging throughout and after the discussion. View the presentation slides here;
