Karunakaran is from Chennai, Tamilnadu in India and completed the Full-time Bradford MBA in 2009-10. He chose University of Bradford School of Management for its value for money, consistent Top 100 ranking, the diversity of students and staff, and the kinds of elective modules which are not available in most of the other UK universities.
"As a software engineer with a unique blend of experiences, I wanted to help organisations improve their operational efficiency. I chose the Bradford MBA because it would help me to explore decision-making methodologies, understand the way in which they help to structure problems and provide real business solutions.
In particular, the management project helped me put my new skills into practice in the real world. It gave me the opportunity to work with the business companies, understand their problems and created a chance for executing my new ideas with help of the knowledge gained through MBA core modules and electives.
The Bradford MBA gave me the unique opportunity to interact with different people from a range of organizations and professions. I was able to share experiences with my peers, discuss business issues that will enhance my learning and capacity to become an effective team player."
