Having progressed from a system engineering post to a management position in sales and marketing, I feel the strong urge to acquire knowledge about international business development, communications and strategic planning to deal with upcoming challenges. I am grateful to have encountered such rewarding experience and practical learning from the Manchester Global MBA.

The programme was a godsend—it was comprehensive, international and flexible. Not only did I acquire updated and useful knowledge from remote learning, I also got to attend the Advanced Strategic Management workshop held on the U.K. campus. It was a miracle moment as I reconnected with all the friends I had met in some previous workshops. All in all, I am very excited to have established a global people-network which is an invaluable asset to my personal and career advancement.

I also attribute my transition to management level to the practical and globally-faced programme. My company is home-based in Hong Kong and expanding into the global market. Since the programme is comprehensive with an international perspective, it will allow me to gain insights into the various market environments and practices, as well as modern management skills.

Upon completing the MBA programme, I felt much more ready for fresh challenges—and my efforts paid off tremendously when I was promoted to a General Manager position. This is a thrilling step forward, and I have the Manchester Global MBA to thank for that!
