Business Owner – Refund Home Loans – Brisbane West

What was I doing when I decided to do the MBA
I was an Engineer working as a Production Control Manager in the Machine Tool industry in Yorkshire UK.

Why I chose Cranfield
I chose Cranfield from reputation at Central London Polytechnic where I had done a Diploma in Management Studies 3 years earlier and because it was possible to do a 2 year Harvard course in 1 year at Cranfield

What I got out of it
A broad understanding of business areas I had not been exposed to before, e.g. Accounting, Economics, Operations Management and HR. Also the opportunity to work as a University Lecturer in New Zealand which is what I did immediately following the MBA.
