          • Testimony
            1999-2000, M Sc

            Some of the aspects that I liked Bradford the most were the way they structured its academic contents. In addition to that, I had the opportunity of sharing the input and views of key personalities and consultants in Environmental Management that helped us grasp the realm of what this business discipline entailed. This particular MSc degree was also supported by lecturers of the School of Management (known back then as the Management Centre) which strengthened tremendously the business side of the course. Overall, This University promotes diversity and a very friendly environment, reason why in 2008 I decided to enroll as well in their MBA programme.
