What attracted you to the Business School?

I liked the fact that the MBA class is quite mature and diverse and I felt I would be able to learn a lot from my classmates. The MBA has offered me the chance to get further international exposure through the exchange programme option, which fits perfectly with my career goals.

What has the Edinburgh MBA allowed you to achieve?

Personal development is a key aspect of the MBA. In addition to the theoretical concepts that I have been exposed to on the range of subjects that I am taking, I have been able to enhance my soft skills. I have also had numerous opportunities to network within and outside the School.

Edinburgh is a beautiful city and it is a joy to visit. It is highly cosmopolitan and the people are friendly – they are always willing to give a helping hand when you cannot find where you are going!

How did you find the application process?

The application process was straightforward. The staff that I interacted with during the process were friendly and encouraging, queries were answered promptly and this enhanced the positive feeling I had about the School.
