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.

Though my journey here at Essex was short, it was very engaging. I pursued a full-time MBA while also actively taking part in sessions conducted by Essex StartUps. It is indeed an amazing platform for learning. I attended Business Weekender, Non-Technical App Development Worship, and the highly regarded 10-week group consultation project, ITeams. Doing these sessions in parallel to my MBA led me to active thinking, application of theories in practice, and refining my management skills. Apart from this, I also got a unique opportunity to be part of EIRA Innovation Weekender 2020, a platform where I met like-minded people from different universities, who came together to pitch an interesting business idea to solve a current problem. I got a chance to work on Pepsi - Quaker Oats, providing me with a fantastic opportunity to network, hone my entrepreneurial skills and explore my maximum potential. With all this experience, I feel more confident to undertake my consultancy project as part of the MBA Project work.
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.
