My OU tutors were fantastic in understanding my unique circumstances
I decided to study with the OUBS because I was an athlete representing Great Britain as a Pairs Figure skater. I wanted to be able to challenge myself mentally as well as physically. Along with giving myself the education and opportunity to move in a different career direction after I retired from competitive skating.
During my MBA education I was working on various Royal Caribbean cruise ships as an Ice Skater Entertainer and Manager. I had an extremely difficult time being able to get consistent Internet access, but my OU tutors were fantastic in understanding my unique circumstances, allowing me to work asynchronously whenever possible.
Along with being an athlete, getting an MBA was always a dream for me, and the OUBS made it possible for me to achieve both of my dreams at the same time.
I am now excited to move forward with the next stage of my life, with a career move in to management consulting, which I would not have been able to do without the OU!
