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

The course content and triple accreditation status of the course, as well as the opportunity to network too with a high level of attendees. The cost of the course was reasonable. I see it as an opportunity to learn new skills and stay abreast/up to date with the changing work environment.


I seek to advance my career by moving into a directorship/strategic level role over the next few years, with the view of opening an independent business of my own within five to ten years.


Work smart and seek as much knowledge as possible for you to succeed. Always do your research before embarking on any venture and ensure you have the right resources to accomplish the goal.
