What our MBA alumni say
“The MBA educated me in management and leadership related issues, it gave me credentials to facilitate a career move as it expanded my career possibilities for the future by giving me the big picture and knowledge basis to apply toward a focused career path based on specialised skills. I was actually promoted to a Head of Department while studying for my MBA. Additionally and as an MSc In Information Systems graduate with 3 years' experience in the field of Information Technology, the MBA Program taught me to see the non-technical side of the business, which was extremely helpful in dealing with non-technical professionals. It provided me the solid business background and analytical skills so that I am more effective in my profession.
The MBA at Westminster acquainted me with individuals from other fields where the quality of my cohort members was extremely useful to me. Just the Interaction with other students was a great value to me, as I learned a lot from their various experience and background.
Finally, the case studies from all the subjects were relevant addressing contemporary business issues with a practical focus -from recession to the rising power of china- and delivered by an excellent staffs that are passionate about learning and educations.”

“My career ambition is to be able to bring the best practice from the private sector into the public sector and have a more commercial approach. We don't at the moment, in the public sector, have the corporate mindset to help us be more productive and efficient. It also gives me great opportunities in the future if I wanted to move out of the police and into a private sector environment. The MBA helps with the translation between the public and private sectors.”

Part-Time MBA 2011
“When deciding which business school to study my MBA, here were number of things that appealed to me about the University of Westminster. First, the AMBA accreditation, which meant the programme was recognised externally for offering something of merit and appropriate to an ever changing business environment. Second, the social entrepreneurship module that I was interested in taking, offered a practical element, that wasn’t the case with other universities around the country. The course itself was intense at times, but extremely rewarding, and I would highly recommend the University of Westminster Business School to anyone looking to study their MBA.”
“Having spent the past 15 years working for number of non-for–profit organisations, I decided it was time for me to get back to school and give a serious boost to my career. Studying at a university that was internationally accredited, multi-national and that offered a diverse environment was important to me.I wanted to develop an international network and to learn about and to experience different elements influencing the business world, and the University of Westminster, Westminster Business School offered all this and more.
Yes, the course is intense and challenging and it has been very rewarding stretching myself beyond what I ever thought would be possible, and essentially enriching not only my core strengths and professional development, but augmenting a sturdier career path.”

“The Westminster Part-Time MBA is a rigorous academic programme in business administration that enables me to enhance my general management skills and to apply them at the workplace right from the start of the programme. Firstly, the programme offers a holistic exposure to how businesses can sustain and succeed in the midst of economic and competitive forces. Secondly, the programme builds the confidence and drive to position myself ahead in the game towards applying strategic thinking at work place to drive efficiency and effectiveness and to progress in a general management career.

“The Westminster MBA was an amazingly rich and rewarding experience. Equally challenging in content and enjoyable, filled with larger than life characters and experiences that stay with you for life. Now you have a chance to relive the highs and lows of being an MBA by participating in the Wbs MBA alumni events. There is the added bonus that they feature guest appearances from westminster teaching staff and legendary management guru's such as Neil, and after all networking is fundamental prerequisite to career success...”
“The MBA provided an excellent opportunity to develop a strong network from a wide range of industries. The focus on networking was further enhanced through the MBA Tuesday evening club where guest speakers presented on current business issues. The strong focus on group course work enabled a diverse range of professional experiences to be shared and applied to the concepts and theories learned in lectures. This approach allowed me to develop the practical skills needed for business analysis whilst developing insightful solutions to the challenges faced by today’s organisations.”
“I chose Westminster because it is AMBA accredited, in a good location and is a well known place and name. It's giving me a grounded and complete view of business processes and opportunities.”
