"I chose to study at Essex Business School as it was highly ranked and a lot of alumni had gone on to become senior figures within their industries. The modules offered were a great fit for my business aspirations, and the opportunity to create a business plan meant I had a launch pad ready for when I was ready to start up my own business. I now own a number of businesses and hope to grow them and sell on in the future. I also advise people on how to start businesses using the techniques and knowledge I gained during my time at Essex."
