"As my career went through a recession, I pondered how to give it a lift and decided to attend the HBS program, 'A New Path.' Since then, my confidence level has skyrocketed. I received the promotion for which I had been waiting three years, and with a tremendous increment in my salary. Not long afterward, I moved to a higher role and responsibility for about five months, and then a headhunter recruited me for a telecommunications competitor company in March 2010. I recently founded a consulting company, Microsolutions Consulting Limited, and have a queue of consulting jobs. By providing windows of opportunities to climb the management ladder of my organization, the program enabled me to transition from employee to entrepreneur."
