I’m an engineer, but I want to move into management. The Essex MBA will help me change careers. Essex Business School is an amazing place to study. I’m learning from experienced academics, but I’m part of something much greater than an academic community. By learning about sustainability and ethics, I’m helping to change business for the better. I find that really motivating.
