The increase in the number of MBAs in the UK and the rationalisation and restructuring of British companies mean that an MBA alone is not enough to guarantee a successful career, particularly in one company. The evidence indicates that MBAs must be prepared to find new employment when necessary. A review is given of the bodies which can provide help in this respect: recruitment agencies; executive search firms; outplacement consultancies; the business schools; and career management consultants. It is suggested that the most obvious source of advice is career management consultants; the cost of their services is relatively low compared with the total cost of obtaining the MBA itself.
