I would recommend the OU Business School to anyone because of the high level of tuition and online material on offer. The degrees are recognised worldwide.

I went from a Principal Consultant, to Associate Director, to Chief Technical Officer reporting to the CEO, all since graduating. This would not have been possible in this time frame without the MBA.

I found the MBA programme very rewarding. It made me appreciate learning and exposed me to leadership theories which have practical applications both in the business environment and in life more generally.

I’d come from a council estate in Sheffield and I’d found myself working in the City! But my MBA gave me the confidence to thrive within a very different culture.

Football is my passion – I still have dreams of playing in the Premiership. But with my degree, I hope that in time I can set up a business, maybe something to do with football, so that I have a career long after my days on the pitch.

My studies were excellent and allowed me to focus on areas I was interested in, and which were most beneficial to me. The MBA gave me the confidence to just get on with things.
