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 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.
As an international student, I found the UK to be an attractive destination for higher education for several reasons. Firstly, I wanted to study in a country that has a reputation for providing high-quality education, with a strong emphasis on research and innovation. The UK is known for its world-class universities, which offer a wide range of courses and programmes to cater to diverse interests and career goals. The academic standards are high, and the universities follow a rigorous curriculum that ensures that students are well-prepared for the job market. Another reason why I chose to study in the UK is because of its multicultural society. The UK is home to people from all over the world, which provides an excellent opportunity to interact with people from different backgrounds and learn from them. I believed that studying in such an environment would broaden my horizons and prepare me to work in a globalized world. Additionally, I was interested in exploring job opportunities in the UK and abroad. The UK has a strong economy with plenty of job opportunities for graduates. As an international student, I was eligible to work part-time during my studies, which helped me gain practical experience and earn some money. Moreover, the UK has a friendly and welcoming environment for international students, with a well-established support system in place to help them adjust to the new culture and lifestyle. In terms of job opportunities, the UK has a diverse and competitive job market, offering opportunities in different sectors and industries. As a graduate of an international business programme, I could pursue careers in multinational corporations, financial institutions, consulting firms, government agencies, or start my own business. The programme also prepared me to work in different countries and cultures, which could broaden my career prospects and open up new opportunities. I am now working as a Business Analyst at Metlife India.
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.
