Aisha Legge, MBA

I wish I’d started my MBA years ago. I feel like I’m part of a community.

I created a WhatsApp group for students based in the UAE and we physically meet up regularly. If I can’t watch any lectures live because of the time difference I can watch them on demand and our tutors try to be flexible with their office hours.

Even though we’re miles away from the Essex team, they’re always willing and able to help with any issues or questions I have. My student adviser, Marie, replies promptly, is always able to assist me and offers support in my studies.

My hope is that my MBA will help with career advancement and open doors to opportunities with potential employers in the future.

Janice Evans, BA (Hons) Criminology and Criminal Justice

Since starting this course, I have found out things about myself, which I was not aware of previously.

Erin Lovell, MBA

I chose to study my MBA because I knew that ultimately, I'd like to own a number of businesses and work for myself.

Grace Araba, BA (Hons) Business and Management

I am inspiring people even outside my family already. They believe if at my age I am doing a degree, then why not.
