businesses face nowadays. The flexibility and understanding
imparted by the lecturers of the programme also allowed me
to think out of the box and conduct research using several
approaches, something which I believe cannot be learned from
other programmes."

"The MMGT programme is unique and different from other management programmes that I came across during my research as it allows students the flexibility to choose to study from a variety of modules according to their interests. Apart from general management modules, the knowledge that I gained from certain specialised modules in the human capital management and non-profit management domains has helped me solve business problems in my current job. The faculty are wonderful, making the evening and weekend lectures interesting with a mixture of theory, case studies and open discussions."
