Testimonial

"I have found this MBA to be challenging and brain racking. This is the first full time course which I’m doing while engaged in full time work and I have found it to be very hands-on. My work as an operations executive in a shipping company is very hectic and on top of it I had the weekly MBA activities which to speak the truth I was not able to give complete justice in terms of the quality of work. Overall the study materials and the activities involved were of challenging standard. The modules involved such as marketing, leadership and business strategies made me understand the overall nutshell of business management. Being a man of shipping the first module of shipping and shipping law was very interesting and improved and solidified my shipping knowledge. The various discussion modules and the interaction with tutors were good platforms for sharing our individual views and opinion and for clarification of my many doubts and getting expert opinion on the topics from well experienced tutors. I have enjoyed being part of this MBA program from Middlesex University."
