I play various roles in an international organisation and this gives me the context to asses, reflect and directly apply new information and knowledge acquired. It gives me the theory I missed in certain areas and by being able to apply it, I feel I’m building a better foundation for myself. ” Read more...

“The way we learn in class and the discussions you have with peers about practical examples. You deep dive into personal experiences, and bring in your own business issues and get great feedback from peers or professors to look at the situation from a different point of view. This helps to understand there’s not only one way to solve problems.” Read more...

“The OneMBA has people from aviation, banks and so many other sectors. I know what we do in chemicals, but now I hear different techniques and strategies I can apply into my own job.
