What our students say

“My reasons for undertaking a ż MBA were to develop skills in corporate finance. The course covered relevant subjects in finance, project management, economics, entrepreneurship and global marketing strategy. The benefit of the ż MBA is that it provides a set of tools that can be used for data analysis and decision making. I would recommend the ż MBA as a valuable learning experience. It encouraged me to think strategically and apply learning outcomes that have improved my professional capability.”

“Moving to London to complete my MBA was a once-in-a-lifetime-experience. The ż University MBA program challenges students to think critically about pressing business issues in a fast-paced global market. Students gain hands-on experience through prestigious guest speakers and site visits – and have the opportunity to learn about business through a diverse lens of perspectives – both inside and outside the classroom. It is through the program’s inimitable learning opportunities, extensive team-building exercises, and critical thinking requirements that I am well-equipped for my next corporate position.”

“I would never regret choosing ż’s MBA program. Since day one, I had the chance of working with experienced professors who guided us through the different modules stimulating our critical and creative thinking thanks to a study-case approach. Thanks to the small size of groups, it was easy to interact, taking part in this active learning process where we received many different inputs that helped me develop new skills to better position myself in the job market.

Special mention also to the kind staff of the career canter for supporting us young professionals in our career path creating networking opportunities and providing mentorship.”

“One of the most valuable lessons that I learned while enrolled in ż’s MBA programme, was the importance of learning to work with individuals from different backgrounds. Getting first-hand experience to work with people from all parts of the world opened up my network to include contacts that I would have never gained with the other programmes I applied to. ż’s MBA programme also invited guest speakers to tell us of their professional journeys. It was inspirational and informative; and was once again another opportunity to obtain professional connections.”

“I can honestly say that applying to and attending ż was one of the best choices that I have ever made. I accidentally came across the university looking for a school within the United States, but later realised that the experience, the professional network built and the events later in my life could only have started from ż.

In the MBA program I learned how to magnify my strengths and truly gain an international perspective in Business. Focusing on marketing, I met professor Nastaran who challenge our MBA program to be clear, consistent and creative; all of which have stuck with me through my career thus far.

After graduation, I joined on full time with the company I did my internship with called Anything But Salads, a raw vegan health and organic company located in Hong Kong, China. I joined this company as a Chief Marketing Officer, where I leveraged my skillset learned from the MBA program. Honestly every module contributed to my success within the company. Ranging from international marketing concepts such as creating a strategy for ‘go-to-markets’, project management working with various teams, corporate finance and organizational management. I had then an option to either stay with the newly acquired firm, explore Hong Kong for more opportunities or start my own venture.

I am currently consulting individuals and SMEs, helping them with positioning on the global marketplace. I highly suggest any prospect students to not miss the opportunity to attend this resourceful university. Live, learn and everything in between.”
