After my bachelor’s degree, I worked briefly in personnel before embarking on a lucrative career as a Relationship Manager in banking. After a while, the lack of importance attached to staff began to resonate with me and I decided to return to HR, but I didn’t want to do so without getting a relevant postgraduate degree behind me. As an international student I’ve had to deal with the challenges arising from the differences in culture and teaching styles. Fortunately, the lecturers in Brunel understand these challenges and have been very supportive. Opportunities to learn are not just confined to my degree course. The free language courses on offer at Brunel have enabled me to start learning Mandarin.
I’ve aspired to join an MBA course for many years as a formal, structured and well-rounded programme towards a senior manage/director role.
Following appointment as an Operations Director for a small family firm, I recognised that there was a vacuum in my formal business qualifications. I was seeking an opportunity to develop my significant business experience in a positive learning environment where I can share with others of a like mind and varied business experience across different sectors and industries.
After attending an open event at Brunel University, I enquired about the Brunel MBA and I was impressed with the course content and structure, and with the staff presentation and openness. It appeared to me to be a well-structured, open, honest MBA tailored towards students with significant business experience. The opportunities to learn with others, and apply shared knowledge back to the workplace left a lasting impression. The course timetable and geographical location were also reasons that attracted me to the Brunel MBA.
I have now managed to secure a new role and position as Director of Operations at Oxford Instruments, now a FTSE 250 company, which has been enhanced by my MBA experience and study.
I really enjoyed the course and the experiences and knowledge gained so far. Working with other students on the programme has benefited me greatly, and I have built new friendships and network links as a result.
