“Basically what I am doing is conducting research with quantitative and qualitative methods to measure and analyse strategies and innovation in high-performing companies. The job that I do and the output I produce have definitely benefitted from the numerous exercises, group work, reports, presentations and the wide range of business-related issues that I have been exposed to during my studies.”

“The strength of the programme is its practical approach to complex ideas and issues. Visiting lecturers from different companies in various industries and positions add great insight into the problem solving of strategic issues in practice.”
