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

I went through the modules and found it very interesting, especially the focus on entrepreneurship, leadership and sustainability. Additionally, the fact that KBS is one among the ‘Triple Accredited’ business schools was a big pull. I’m hoping to gain practical and formal knowledge about various aspects of running a business. Also to improve the quality of my networks, to explore new opportunities and to have fresh perspectives.


Post MBA, I plan to try myself in a management consulting career.


My advice for anybody who wants to progress in business would be to keep an open- minded approach to new ideas and grab the opportunities. Build great networks along the way.
