What made you decide to pursue a Durham MBA?
“The MBA was important to further my career in terms of seniority and to broaden the scope of potential work. And in my case, to help me specifically explore the whole energy sector, not just oil and gas.”
Why did you choose Durham as the institution to attend? “I chose Durham University Business School after doing a vast amount of research. I found that the Durham MBA had an excellent reputation, great value and a programme design which suited many of my interests - for example, international business trips, leadership classes and many optional routes. In addition, my choice was also driven by the excellence and reputation of Durham’s Energy Institute.”
