CEO Business Manager

Global Insurance Company

I chose this MBA over many others because of MBS’s reputation—its triple accreditation and its FT ranking, for instance, all pointed towards a stellar degree programme. As I embarked on the degree, I discovered not only core programmes which were highly impressive, but also a global network of friendship that had remained with me to this day. The degree's international slant was definitely a plus—through studying at different centres, including Hong Kong, Singapore and the U.K., I managed to touch upon a diversity of cultural perspectives. Moreover, networking and discussion with students from all corners of the globe provided me with a ‘live’ experience of international business itself. As for the courses, I found them an excellent mix of theory and practice. From case-studies to workshopping, the practical nature of the programme gave me a variety of new and interesting perspectives on management itself, which can be applied to work immediately. But ultimately, it’s the global exchange with fellow students that counts the most—it’s given me friends for life!
