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

Studying as an undergraduate taught me that the learning environment was just as important as the qualification itself. I believe that the deepest learning comes from spending time with colleagues and tutors who can challenge my thinking and broaden my understanding. When I was introduced to the Kent MBA programme, I realised that the learning environment presented is a truly unique opportunity to be part of a multi-cultural learning community with collective aims, broad knowledge and experiences (such as the mixture of nationalities, access to business coaches, group projects and MBA suite). Therefore, I was excited to see this type of environment on offer. I want to be challenged and learn how to lead organisations and sectors towards a more sustainable future.


To find new ways of unlocking the collective potential of industry, governments and academia to achieve sustainable goals.


Continuously reflect on your journey, the highs and the lows, and strive to enjoy the process in its entirety.
