Careers and employability

"Nottingham Business School's EMBA stood apart, as it gave me the opportunity to join a cohort of professionals from across various industries and sectors, and study the theory and practice of broad, business-focused syllabus, both in the UK and internationally.

From start to finish the course structure was clear and defined, and crucially helped me to manage and balance academic study, work schedules, and my personal life. From the outset of my studies and beyond, I found myself applying course learning in my day to day work and personal life with tangible positive effect."
