The MBA program focused on creating leaders who could bring an impressive array of skills and experiences to potential employers. The Graduate Business School’s approach to the study of business with its emphasis on the management of change helped me enhance my personal skills and qualities as well as gain a thorough understanding of the various challenges faced by organisations in the business world. Working in an international environment with individuals from a wide range of backgrounds on real business cases the MBA helped me to enhance my leadership and team building skills. I now have a career as a Business Performance Analyst with the oil service company RGB Limited where I daily apply the knowledge and skills I acquired through the MBA.
