'Starting my career in Product Engineering and technical roles, I progressed my profession into the world of Product Management. Currently working as a Senior Product Manager for a market-leading electrical manufacturer supplying blue-chip retailers across the world this enabled me to develop my management and leadership skills. With Product Management at the heart of the company and interacting with all business functions and aspiring to take my career further, I realised I would benefit by developing and extending my knowledge in other business areas, allowing me to have conversations with all stakeholders at all levels.'

'The MBA programme at the University of Wolverhampton was especially interesting as it enables me to study part-time whilst still focusing on my full-time job and applying the taught material right away. Although demanding, the University provide very good facilities to ensure you reach your goals at both a career and academic level with tutors having great industry experience, supplemented by a vast amount of online material. The new invigorated course provides a deep understanding of the core business functions with a modern twist and the Master's Research Project lets you focus on something of your liking. The course onboards students from a huge array of backgrounds and industries making networking and classes very interesting due to a wide range of experiences.'

'With improved knowledge and ability to liaise with senior leadership, I hope to secure a leading and strategic role myself in the future, largely benefited from completing this MBA.'
