I truly enjoy the Executive MBA programme from the University of Hull. When I enrolled in the programme, the fee was sponsored by my employer and I was truly blessed to have the opportunity to place the time and effort to enroll in an MBA. To me, an MBA is a personal challenge and I consider it as a personal development. Since, I need to work during day-time; I would not prefer programmes with a busy schedule. After going through the schedule, I think it is quite easy to handle as a part time study. Moreover, I believe a high quality face-to-face interaction between lecturers and students can greatly elevate my understanding throughout the programme. Concerning my career development, the programme covers various skills, including decision-making skills, leadership skills and management skills which is greatly applicable to my work. Meanwhile, the programme also provides me with a professional network. Most of the fellow students are working in management or senior level at their respective work, thus it helps me to branch out for a broader network. The programme truly helps me to achieve a remarkable success in my career development. It is definitely worth it for me to put in the time for this quality MBA Thanks Kaplan! Executive MBA of University of Hull is definitely an exceptional programme!"
