My first degree was in pharmacy and while my career at Boots progressed successfully into retail store management, I felt disadvantaged by a lack of knowledge of wider business management disciplines. I talked to Nottingham MBA alumni within the Boots business who encouraged me to investigate opportunities to complete an MBA to overcome these gaps in my knowledge.
Regional Country Manager
Boots Retail International
My Nottingham Executive MBA has enabled me to move out of retail store management into regional management outside the UK. My MBA learning and the confidence I gained from the programme enabled me to research and deliver a proposal for opening International Boots franchise stores. Our group board approved this proposal and I am now the regional manager for a growing portfolio of Boots franchise stores in the Middle East.
