“I am undertaking a Global Online MBA because I always try to push my boundaries, push my limits and really improve myself. I believe without challenges, we stay stagnated and I believe that this degree will be one of the greatest challenges of my educational and professional life.”
“I chose to study with Global Online because the MBA is delivered entirely online. Being in a full-time job makes it difficult to find the time to take up additional learning. I was on the lookout for an MBA that would suit my time and needs for many years, and found the one offered by Manchester Metropolitan University better than that offered by any other university.”
“If you are a hectic salesman, as I am, learning online is a good way to achieve your goals. You can access the Manchester Metropolitan platform 24/7, which means you can use it whenever you need it. The relationship with our Student Success Advisor and tutors is also really close, allowing me to achieve an in-depth understanding of the topic I am studying.”
