Richard Baggaley - London Publishing Partnership
Richard Baggaley set up professional publishing services and research consultancy, London Publishing Partnership in 2012.
Prior to this, he had worked in academic book publishing as an editor, publisher and director.
notes: "When I first started, I worked for a big American company and they offered to pay half the fees.
I figured that my CV would look better with an MBA
There was definitely no direct link between getting the MBA
and getting a promotion but it seemed like a good idea to improve my marketability.
I also had a bit of a hankering to one day start my own business."
explains that studying for an MBA
has helped him by allowing him to "better understand the way that organisations work, what motivates people and the importance of company culture.
Managing a creative business was a particular interest of mine and the course was great in that respect."
When asked whether he
would recommend studying for an MBA
Baggaley adds a note of caution: "It depends on the MBA and where you are doing it.
