Why did you decide to study for your MBA with Bradford and what did you gain from it?
The University of Bradford gave me the opportunity to pursue my MBA without the need for a Bachelor’s Degree. I took up the challenge and completed my MBA, which was the best decision of my life. The experience and degree has assisted me to become a better decision maker.
What advice would you give current or future students?
Believe that you can do it. An MBA is not the key to everything; it is only the tip of the iceberg. There are many more years to develop one's talents and specialities. Use the knowledge learned in an MBA as a platform to frog leap.
