What's it like to start a course in January?

"I applied to Birmingham City University directly and believe the MBA International will give me an international, professional qualification.

I want to make use of it in the managerial area, perhaps within marketing, and it gives you the extra edge needed to create opportunities."

Mickey Hisaria, International MBA, India

"I chose to study here as the course has a good reputation and Birmingham is a multicultural city, which I knew would be welcoming.

In 10 years time, I want to have my own business or upgrade myself to a higher level, such as CEO of a company. The International MBA gives you practical experience of knowing more about global business operations across the world."

João Alcantara Junior, MBA, Brazil

"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. 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. I have lived abroad before and I love travelling; therefore I believe having an MBA from a British University had prepared me to develop an international career."
