Choosing Imperial and the Global Online MBA
Choosing to do the Global Online MBA was a self-development move to broaden my knowledge and develop new skills in new business areas. Also, it was an initiative taken towards career progression and acceleration. Combining a clinical research background with the commercial and business management knowledge the Global Online MBA offers will provide me with a unique set of skills that will unlock future career opportunities and enable me to look at the bigger picture in a wider business context. I chose to study this programme online because I wanted the flexibility to manage my own time and simultaneously progress my professional career.
I am a returning student to Imperial. I did my PhD at Imperial a few years ago and I loved the time I spent here as a student. I witnessed students receiving excellent support and the positive culture I personally experienced made Imperial my first choice. In contrast to other online programmes from other schools, the content at Imperial looked very exciting and interactive. I know the progressive nature of Imperial in terms of leveraging the latest technologies and due to the established name of Imperial, it was an obvious choice.
Global Online MBA experiences so far
In addition to the theories and their applications in the offered courses, I also learnt very important things about myself; my strengths and weaknesses, the leadership qualities I have and those I would like to develop. Some of the modules forced me to take a closer look at myself in the mirror which was not always very comfortable but proved to be incredibly rewarding.
