"I am the Chief Technology Officer for Attivo, a chartered financial planning company."

“The lecturers are the MBA’s ‘secret sauce’, they are so supportive. I got married, renovated a house and ran a start-up business all while completing my MBA. Without my fellow students and the tutors, it could have been a very different outcome.

I wouldn’t be where I am today without my MBA. I’ve always had the drive, determination and intelligence – now I have the confidence, knowledge and skills as well.”
