"Looking back, I can see how I have grown immensely over the past 18 months. What I learned from MBA is not only academic knowledge but also resilience. I am now living in London and working as FinTech Ecosystem Associate at Innovate Finance."

“I always wanted to study an MBA from a well-recognised, renowned business school and Manchester couldn’t have been a better option. After 12 months of studying in Manchester, a 3-month internship with National Grid and an amazing International Business Project working for Cordiant Capital I have finally graduated with my MBA degree.

Being part of a diverse class, having the opportunity to get to know people from around the globe aided my growth both professionally and personally. I am really proud to have completed the programme and I have left the MBA with great business and consulting foundations and an international perspective of business.”

“Doing an MBA has always been my dream, but the path to achieving it wasn't always easy. I feel incredibly grateful for this beautiful and transformative journey, I've grown both as a professional and as an individual. I am now a Senior Consultant at Gobeyond Partners in the UK. Before the MBA I was working at BCP bank in Peru as CX team leader.”

“Throughout my journey, I have acquired valuable skills such as expanding my strategic mindset, improving my analytics, marketing, and operations abilities. I have also gained an understanding of working in a multicultural environment. I am grateful to my class of 2023 cohort for their companionship and encouragement throughout this journey, which has been truly remarkable. I am now living in London working as Strategic Planning Manager for American Express.”
