Mhd Rudayn Isa MBA
An MBA qualification was on my personal plan a few years ago after establishing a career in the field of human resources management. I completed my first degree in business administration and started my first job in HR with a reputable international company as early as 1999. A few years down the road, I knew I was well suited to HR, where my skills and ambitions met the obligations and requirements for a successful endeavour in the HR world.
MBA Class of 2009
My criteria for selecting the best MBA programme was based around diversity; be it in the curriculum of the programme, teaching techniques and methods, or the people with whom I would work. The Nottingham MBA promised the delivery of all that, and succeeded in living up to its promise. I enjoyed my programme just as much as I found it challenging.
Right from the start I had a clear view for what I wanted out of my MBA, that was to gain a broader view of business and how best it be handled and developed from the perspective of every stakeholder. From there, I sought a balance in the modules I chose in addition to the core modules already fulfilling this balance. As well as gaining wider business knowledge, the MBA has developed me personally; improving my organisation and time management abilities, as well as enhancing my soft skills which will help me to better manage individuals and teams.
The Nottingham MBA has put me on the direction I planned and hoped for. My management project drew upon my experience in the learning and development field and explored in detail the disciplines of knowledge management, learning organizations as potential strategies for differentiation, and achieving competitive advantage through people and their knowledge. I will be taking this to my next job as the Learning and Development Manager for a giant Telecommunications Company in its regional offices in Syria.
