"I began studying the online part time Master of Business course in 2019. I currently work full time so time is precious for me. This online course gave me the comfort of being able to study in the evenings, and still work full time. The way the modules are spread out works really well. The lecturers seem really invested in us as students and are always there to assist along the way. We get detailed feedback on a regular basis which is key. I would highly recommend this course for anyone with a busy schedule that really wants to upskill in a flexible environment.”
