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

Going through the modules online, I was interested immediately. I knew it would be the perfect place to get the proper knowledge and skills I so much desire. I cannot forget the School’s reputation too. Coming from a third world country, I have seen small businesses suffer due to several factors, some of which are: lack of technical know-how, time management, scheduling, financing (not finding the right investors), and decision making.


To be in a leadership position in any organisation I find myself in – to be part of the management. I would also like to have my own business (consultancy firm) and want to go into Agribusiness.


Never give up on it. Do all you can to keep your business going. There will definitely be hurdles but it’s all part of the learning process. Get the right certifications, if need be. The sky is just the starting point!
