What Attracted You to the Course at Kingston Business School? I chose to study my MBA at Kingston Business School after looking at many of the top business schools because it offered more value for money, it is extremely well regarded, highly accredited and has a superb reputation. It is very well located in its leafy green campus, which made a nice change from the City and a great place to study.

Kingston offers a rich MBA experience, I was able to draw on the vast experience of my cohort from very different backgrounds and business experiences, choose from a variety of modules, and was given excellent advice that helped me progress into my new career.

What Was Your Experience Like on the Course? I was able to draw on the vast experience of the other people on the course from different sectors and backgrounds – which is hugely important. The volume of work is immense, but with discipline and routine, you get through it, and even have time for some fun!

There are a good number of electives – I chose entrepreneurship. All the tutors have real life sector experience. I would really recommend Kingston Business School to anyone interested in doing an MBA.

How Did it Help Your Career? They really do help to pick out your individual skill sets and develop them. The careers advice and support you get is fantastic and I was put in touch with the company I now work for. I am a Director at ME-A Resources (an upstream oil and gas investment company) and Partner at Jubilee where I am responsible for corporate development.
