Opportunities, Potential and Possible Career Paths

"Love it, leave it or change it", "Be authentic" or "Clear values and achievable goals": the strong messages as the result of the MCI symposium "Leadership in the Nonprofit, Social and Healthcare Sector”.

The recently hosted symposium at the Entrepreneurial School® by the MCI department Nonprofit, Social- and Healthcare Management was a great opportunity for students to meet numerous graduates, to hear about their exciting career paths and to learn from their experiences.

HM Lord Lieutenant Helen Nellis, health management expert and Queen's representative in her home region of Bedfordshire, and entrepreneur Sylvanus Vortia, Chief Executive of Axon Information Systems, introduced the symposium with their thoughts and experiences on leadership and change, and led us through the entire event.

The topics ranged from the management of nursing homes, refugee coordination, and foundation of start-ups to finance in non-profit organizations, among many others - all areas in which the graduates are currently active. In expert talks, interviews and breakout sessions, the participants were able to engage with them, exchange thoughts and ideas and network even more during the breaks.

We would like to thank everyone who took part and made these three days something very special!
