Work-life balance. It’s at the top of everybody’s list of desirable career benefits. Now the Naveen Jindal School of Management offers students help on how to plan for this in their own lives: a podcast, formerly called “The Yet Another MBA G.O.A.T. Podcast” (Greatest Of All Time, naturally) has been re-branded as “Between Business & Life.”
An MBA student today. A balanced professional tomorrow. It’s another way that the Jindal School seeks to prepare students to become effective leaders in their future roles. The podcast offers new episodes monthly, featuring thought leaders who have achieved success in their careers as well as an excellent work-life balance. Each episode is designed to equip students with knowledge of business trends while inspiring them to manage both business and life.
