Why did you decide to study your MBA at Bradford?
I chose the MBA course for my personal satisfaction and to add another level of reassurance in my career. My primary reasons for choosing Bradford were flexibility, since I'm in a full-time occupation, and the structure - I was fascinated by how the course was structured and the flexibility around it.

I felt that the University had taken into consideration that students were in different regions. During my studies I was working out in Saudi Arabia, and I was able to work and travel whilst studying.

The flexibility of the course allowed me to balance study with work and family life. I've got a big family, demanding job commitments, and I also like to travel, but I found that I didn't need to compromise any of that.

Advice for future MBA students
Just go for it. Set yourself a target. It's about organisational skills as well, which are helpful in life - in work and in family, so get organised and just go for it.

What made you choose Bradford?
The fact that the University of Bradford MBA course has the triple-crown accreditation played a significant part in my decision to enrol onto this course too.

How have you found distance learning?
Distance learning has provided me with the flexibility to work through the modules at my own pace. I have found all of the lecturers to be engaging, whilst also building connections with fellow students.

As a mother, wife and someone working full-time in a very demanding role, having the flexibility to tailor my learning and study time has enabled me to have a good work/life/study balance.

What's your fave thing about your course?
As a senior manager the course has reinforced my current knowledge, whilst expanding my horizons and challenging my ways of working. The ability to apply my learnings from each module has allowed me to gain better insight and propose new ideas within the company I work for.

My journey through this MBA course has been fantastic and I would happily recommend it to anyone looking to further their business management knowledge and expertise.

Do you think the course will help you to achieve your career ambitions?
The course has already helped me apply various learnings in my current role and I hope it will continue to raise my profile within my organisation and the marketplace in general.

Whilst my personal life will always take precedence, having a successful career and moving up within my professional setting is hugely important to me as a woman.

Having the ability to back up everything I do with an MBA diploma will only help me to achieve my ambitions.
