This taster lecture will be presented by Dr Otilia Obodaru, Professor at the University of Bath’s School of Management, and is representative of the MBA’s ‘Defining your career goals’ unit.
The lecture will discuss the IKIGAI framework, which argues that meaningful work is to be found at the intersection of four factors:
- what you love
- what you are good at
- what you can get paid for
- what the world needs
The lecture will delve into these four components, present some of the most relevant social science research related to them, and then consider the frequent trade-offs that many people face when trying to achieve IKIGAI (e.g. doing what you love often comes at a financial cost, what you love is not necessarily what you are good at – and vice-versa).
The lecture will be followed by a question and answer session with Becky Gallagher – MBA Recruitment Manager.
