Week 4: Business Model
Week 5: Business Planning and Research
Week 6: The Emotions of Change and Managing Change

Week 8: Soft Skills, The Future of Work, and Understanding Disruption
• A personal reflection on skills developed over the MBA.
• A personal reflection on how these will assist in future career endeavours.
• Conclusions.

The reflective essay should include discussion of learnings from both a theoretical and practical perspective.
