    MBA student

    The Middlesex University MBA course touches upon all subjects including HR, operations, finance, strategy, marketing and management perspectives. As my aim is to be an entrepreneur, it is best I have an understanding of all subjects rather than going through one specific avenue.

    The course allowed me to do my project in consultancy and has a number of practical case studies, which allows us to think along the lines of the real world rather than being immersed in our books and theoretical knowledge.

    Elizabeth Solaru

    MBA student

    The Middlesex MBA suited me; it was a way to change direction. I found the MBA gave me credibility as a Recruitment Consultant as I could talk to employers and candidates in-depth about any industry.

    I've found that as an MBA you're not just another head in the business; you're seen as a strategic operator who can drive change. But it's not the MBA, it's the person behind the MBA that counts.
