One of my career aspirations is to go into more strategic roles in a multi-national company and this Manchester program has helped me achieve this goal.

This Manchester program is not an end in itself, but a means to an end. It has given me the ability to develop my career to its fullest potential, at an accelerated pace. These include the "hard skills" of economics, finance, marketing, operations, management, and accounting, as well as the "soft skills " of leadership, teamwork, ethics, and communication that are so critical for effective management. Manchester MBA students acquire these skills inside and outside the classroom. It also offers access to a network of MBA students, alumni, faculty, and business and community leaders. This network has been very useful to me when developing a career path, building business relationships in my current career, or pursuing expertise outside my current field.

The Manchester MBA degree is a recognized brand that signifies management and leadership training. It has brand associations It has provided me with technical skills and opportunities for personal growth, and the reach of its alumni and industry network.

And I'm confident that it will continue to give me the flexibility to make changes throughout my career.
