In every aspect, the OMBA helps you to be more rounded. You learn areas of business that you would otherwise not have contact with – while being exposed to how people from other backgrounds and sectors think and work. My group is very diverse, both from a gender and background point of view.

I really appreciate doing one topic at a time. I work at my own speed – going faster if I want to, or letting things sink in more slowly if needed. The structure helps you to stay on track. I want to launch my own business – or step into a new one – and the online MBA will help me achieve this.
I’m managing two start-ups at the same time as doing the OMBA. And there’s a real benefit to studying and working at the same time. You can immediately apply what you learn in real life – and there is so much from the MBA that I can draw on in my work.
