Why Essex?

With students from 140 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 chose to study The Essex MBA in order to broaden my knowledge of different business sectors, and was very impressed by the breadth of study options offered. I gained vital skills through intriguing modules and also had opportunities to gain valuable experience through organised visits to HSBC, through which I was introduced to the banking industry. With the knowledge and skills I gained, it was wonderful to graduate with so many different sectors available to me in which I could develop and excel in my chosen career. I'm currently working as a Senior Business Consultant at Virtusa UK LTD, which I could not have done without The Essex MBA.

Hear from our Indian students

 

I particularly like the fact that the course covers a wide array of topics in telecommunications. As we are able to choose from a selection of optional courses, it is easy to tailor the course to my interests. The staff members in the Department are highly qualified and experienced in their area of research. They are extremely helpful and I have gained a great deal from their knowledge and experience. The course itself has given me good breadth of knowledge in the field of telecommunications and helped me to make an informed decision about my research area, enabling me to effectively carry out independent research in the future.
