University of Bolton students on Postgraduate study say:
“Throughout my time at the university, I was full supported and encouraged by all the staff and lecturers and even though some subjects were new and challenging at times, I was always able to ask for support and was taught to think at a higher level in order to approach subjects from a broader perspective and create solutions. The MBA degree has enabled me to look at the business world from a different perspective and has allowed me to broaden my horizons and given me the confidence to start my own management consultancy business.” Omar Anwar, MBA Masters of Business Administration.
