What attracted you to the MBA programme at Kent Business School and why?

I was attracted to the MBA because it offered best array of modules for me to both improve my knowledge in my current interests and explore new areas of Business management I am less familiar with. I was particularly impressed by the connections the department has that will guarantee each student an invaluable work experience opportunity.

I welcome the opportunity for global study tours and I feel MBA will enhance my enterprise, consultancy and strategic thinking.


I want the Kent Business School MBA to enhance my marketability as a professional and increase the quality and quantity of job opportunities. I want to explore the latest international Business trends, apply the newest management tools and techniques and it to challenge me to improve business, teams and collaborations.
