Why did you decide to pursue an MBA and why did you choose the Manchester Global MBA?
I believe in continuous lifelong learning. After getting my bachelor’s degree in engineering, I knew that pursuing an MBA would equip me with the required skills to take my career to the next level. With the MBA, I would be able to position myself better in the organization, contribute more to the company, therefore benefiting them. I chose the Manchester Global MBA because the programme is one of the best out there. It is well-ranked, world-renowned, and highly-recognized globally with its Triple Crown accreditation. The programme also offers relevant electives such as Negotiation Skills, Supply Chain Management, and Business in Accounting and Finance that would elevate my career significantly.
What is your biggest takeaway from doing the MBA?
The biggest takeaway from doing the MBA is time management. I have to admit that I underestimated the level of commitment needed to study part-time and work full-time, before deciding to pursue the Manchester Global MBA. Nevertheless, I think it has forced me to improve my time management so that I am able to balance my job, studies, and most importantly, family.
Why did your company decide to sponsor your studies on the Manchester Global MBA?
My company strongly believes in the need to continuously improve oneself, especially when it comes to education. As an Operations Leader, my company saw that the modules on the Manchester Global MBA programme and its learning outcome were aligned with my progression and would not only benefit me at a personal level, but would also benefit them in the long run.
