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.
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.
Distance learning seemed like the best fit for me at the time, with two young sons aged five and seven, a full-time job and a sick husband who was already undergoing chemotherapy; it was really the only option.
The MBA is recognised globally and will open up doors that you never knew existed. My qualification and study experience have helped me to achieve senior management positions in the NHS at a much earlier age than most of my peers. It has also led to a national clinical leadership position with the UK’s leading first aid charity.
