The Kent MBA

Student Profile(s)

Nick Saunders

Background and why study for an MBA?

Originally I worked in the City, in Finance. If you are looking at my career as two halves, that was the first half. The second half has been involved in a family business which is in recruitment, which is for recruiting health care staff, which we supply to various organisations throughout Kent. And I've being doing that for the last half of my career up until now, so the last 15 years.

The reason for coming on an MBA was because increasingly the business I'm in is becoming more and more competitive, there's opportunities where we would like to diversify into certain areas, and I think all those things couple together, I just felt that I would prefer to have an increased my skill set to take advantage of these opportunities that are coming forward and also to have this in readiness for any potential move in the market, for example expansion. So it's basically gaining skills sets.

I looked at the MBA because I think it gives you an all-round approach to business as a whole. There might be certain elements that don't really apply to me, but as I'm doing the course now I can see where things tie in with what I'm doing or what I'm thinking, or are quite relevant to the opportunities I'm looking at. So that was the reason for choosing the MBA. Obviously, the executive format allowed me to combine the MBA with my work.

Kent Business School is pleased to offer a range of hardship bursaries to UK and International postgraduate taught students who require financial support in order to undertake and complete their master's studies.

KBS Bursaries are awarded on the grounds of financial hardship and in order for us to offer such a bursary there needs to be reference to this within the application essay. For example, some of our students are parents (especially single parents) or mature students with heavy financial commitments. Some students may be registered with a disability and further funding will contribute towards the costs of studying and/or living, whereas others may be from a low-income family and find they need to raise funds themselves. Some may find that even with working part-time (which can put a strain on studies) they simply cannot raise the funds needed.

Awards up to £3,000

To be eligible candidates must:

- Be self-funded
- Submit a maximum 750 word supporting statement describing your current financial circumstance, detailing why you require the extra funding and should be considered for a hardship bursary.
