What our students say...

“Having a cohort starting in January instead of September was very convenient for me; plus the size of the institution, the wide range of courses, the number of students, location, tuition fees and modules of the programme were all factors I considered before applying.

"Having colleagues from a number of countries and coming from different backgrounds increased the learning experience regarding group work between different cultures. The modules of the programme covered the most important subjects about different business areas given an overview of what a company’s leader should know. Birmingham is a well located city full of things to do such as concerts, theatre, restaurants, clubs and so on, plus it is cheaper than London.”
