Why Essex?

With students from over 140 different countries, Essex is the world in one place. We're top 20 for the most international student community in the THE World University Rankings 2018. 
I manage the foreign trading department of a textile company back home in China. I moved to the UK to undertake my MBA because I wanted to develop my career potential. I chose Essex Business School because there is such a close working relationship between my tutor, the support team and my classmates; it makes studying abroad much easier. I enjoy the group work and the social events during Welcome Week helped me to settle in.
