[[Testimonial] “I chose to study at The College of Estate Management (CEM) as it is internationally recognised as the place to gain professionally accredited construction sector qualifi cations. I always had access to great support from academic staff at all levels and my studies with CEM have completely changed the way I think, for the better.
My time at CEM has seen a rich interweaving of knowledge between the course modules and my every day work, creating an enhanced understanding of all aspects of both environments. Covering a huge breadth of business subjects, the course has developed my analytical skills, enabling me to excel at gathering and interpreting large amounts of new information to form an overview of a situation, understand its constituent parts and to identify solutions and conclusions.
My MBA has been a great and challenging journey, one that has helped me develop into a professional and provided me with a qualification from an internationally recognised and respected College.
My course material was well structured with additional podcasts, webinars and videos for a range of learning styles. I would highly recommend the course to others.”
