Five reasons why: The Global MBA
Joining an MBA was not a snap decision.
I’ve been thinking about it for a number of years. Obviously, I wanted to be associated with a programme that stood out in terms of quality and reputation, and that’s how Cass came into my life. But there’s more, of course! Here are the top reasons why I joined the Cass Global MBA.
I currently work at Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts, as the Content Management Manager based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. I knew I wanted to further my studies and I knew I didn’t want to give up my job, because I have bills to pay!
The blended delivery was really an attractive option because it allows me to juggle between my studies and work. Another aspect of the programme that I find interesting is the international electives in which students travel to different destinations around the world and get hands-on experience from those unique destinations.
Plus, when I am in the city for the on-campus sessions I can utilise my staff benefit and stay at our London property!
2. Location! Location! Location!
It’s London! Based in one of the world’s leading financial cities, Cass is perfectly positioned both physically and strategically to provide a top-notch business education. However, it’s not just all work and no play for me. London as a city has given me so many wonderful memories.
I attended my very first concert here at the 02 Brixton Academy to see Amy Winehouse play. I also met my idol Stan Lee here! Now, as I pursue my postgraduate studies, the city continues to provide me with unforgettable experiences which I am sure this programme will do as well.
So far, the support has been phenomenal! The academic staff as well as the support team have been receptive to the cohort’s feedback. When I encounter an issue, they are just an email away and will check up on me to ensure I am getting the assistance that I need.
As mentioned earlier on, I chose Cass because of its reputation. I am officially two months into the programme and I am loving every moment of it! I am learning so much but more importantly, I am able to apply it while at work, which I believe is this programme’s greatest advantage.
5. It’s my birthday!
I wanted to do something significant this year, both personally and professionally, and this felt like it was the best choice. Coincidentally, the first on-campus session fell on the same day as my birthday!
