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.

My encounter with the OU has been life changing. I have a new voice, new perspectives, and a new invigorated passion to make positive changes.

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.

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.
