Ben Goodwill, Commercial Director, Environmental Services, Westinghouse Electric company

I started the course as an Account Manager for Westinghouse for one of our key public sector clients. 6 months after starting the course I promoted to Commercial Director. The Global MBA has expanded my understanding of how a global business such as Westinghouse operates and in doing so enables me to maximise the value I can offer in my new role.

Mike Steele, Head of PMO, Stonegate group

It was an incredible 2 years and an experience I will never forget. The MBA has broadened my business perspective, provided me a wealth of knowledge that I can practically apply to my work and the platform to reach my career goals. The best course was by far, advanced strategic management, as it brought to life so much of what you learn on the MBA in a structure that provides that light bulb moment.

Alexandra Lynch, CFO Fletchers Solicitors

It was the toughest but most rewarding thing I’ve done to date in my professional career. Juggling my studies with the day job and parenting, it was tricky fitting it all in, but I would do it all again in a heartbeat! We should never stop learning and challenge ourselves to grow and develop at every opportunity.
