Northumbria University First Class Honours Graduate (2021)

Attaining a Degree has always been a personal goal of mine and achieving it has proven my capabilities. It has served as a ticket to job interviews and opportunities for career advancement. As my Diploma was in Legal Studies, it meant that I had no business-related background. Knowing that attaining a Bachelor of Arts in Business Management would add value to my portfolio, I chose a University with modules with real-world practicality.

Northumbria University was my choice as it is well-established and recognised worldwide, holds the Dual AACSB Accreditation and offers a Direct Honours Business Degree.

Through this journey, I learnt the important life skill of time management, as I had to manage my full-time job while attending classes at night and on the weekends.

I stand by the belief that the decisions I make today will determine the direction of my life tomorrow. Even though the journey was not smooth sailing, the support given by the University was immense and I am proud to have completed my programme with First Class Honours.

I had completed my Master of Science in Marketing during the pandemic and decided to further fortify my credentials by pursuing a Murdoch University MBA Degree, which will help sharpen my business acumen and broaden my horizons across leadership, finance and strategy domains.

My job requires me to work extensively with C-suite leadership, including the marketing, finance, corporate strategy, human resources and operations teams. My team plays a pivotal role in driving the organisation’s marketing strategy by providing valuable insights to cross-functional teams for performance steering. So, it is a huge plus if I can understand their lingo and appreciate their perspectives. This would allow us to collaborate better and work towards a common goal.

During the MBA programme, I addressed real-world business challenges, which honed my ability to see beyond my role and understand how organisations operate. This also increased my exposure to diverse perspectives on global, social and business issues as I collaborated with peers whose backgrounds, experiences and career goals differ from mine.

Given that I work in a super fast-paced environment, the MBA programme’s flexible schedule and highly relevant course content, that balances theoretical and experience-based learning in both a classroom and ‘real-world setting’, allowed me to complete the programme in a way that was suited to my work commitments. Upon completion of my Murdoch MBA this year, I was promoted to Vice President of Marketing Analytics.

I decided on Northumbria University because I liked the University’s approach to my programme, even within each module; and I chose my major because it perfectly complemented my career aspirations.

The programme has helped enhance my job performance. I now take steps towards self-improvement in my problem areas and continuously learn by setting personal benchmarks and reviewing them regularly. Learning leads to a better quality of life, boosts confidence and aids in personal development.

I would recommend my University to others as my overall experience was fantastic! I made a great group of friends as my class was big, and we always had laughs with the tutors.

Thanks to my tutors’ help and the content delivered, I exceeded my own expectations by achieving excellent grades. The lessons are completely related to the job you want to do, and the programme has made me rethink what career I want to pursue because it has opened the door to so many higher-paying jobs!

Northumbria University First Class Honours Graduate (2020)

I decided to study with Northumbria University at Kaplan in Singapore as it is among the top 1% of elite institutions worldwide*. I was also attracted to the largely assignment-based learning, which allowed me to better plan my time around my work schedule to complete and submit assignments. As for my choice of major, I chose it as it is related to my current job and I wanted to enhance my knowledge in the field.

The programme has helped to strengthen my job performance. With its assignment-based curriculum, it gave us a more practical education, allowing students to apply the knowledge learned in classes through the assignments given, which were similar to projects assigned at work. In addition, all the research done based on real companies or situations gave me much exposure to current market sentiments and trends, to learn and improve on some “outdated” practices.

Given the good reputation of Kaplan and its collaboration with reputable universities, taught by very knowledgeable lecturers, I would recommend Kaplan.

Northumbria University First Class Honours Graduate (2021)

My first choice was Northumbria University as it is one of the largest universities in the UK, and its programme structure was suitable for me as a working professional. The subjects offered in the Business with Logistics and Supply Chain Management Degree programme were diverse in scope and relevant to my current job in the Service industry.

While pursing my Degree, I had just started a completely new job after working for more than twenty years in the military. However, I succeeded in balancing the challenges of my new job and coping with lectures and assignments at the same time, which eventually led to me graduating with First Class Honours.

I would recommend my University to others as it is a widely recognised University with a good track record and the curriculum offered is relevant to today’s industry context. The lecturers are specialists in their own fields and are always willing to share their wisdom.

Northumbria University was my top choice because of the Degree programme’s industry relevance – learning the essentials of business strategy and management, as well as understanding how supply chain processes can be optimised, adds value to my current role as a continuous improvement lead.

As a leader, I can deliver better results for my organisation through the Japanese concept of kaizen, or continuous improvement, and the application of lean management. The effectiveness of my training programme has also improved with my new wealth of knowledge.

Another reason for my choice is due to its location – the University is in central Singapore, which made it optimal for my part-time study efforts. The overall travel time was not excessive.

Programme taken: Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in Business with Logistics and Supply Chain Management (Top-up)

Being a customer-centric professional and having a passion for the logistics industry, I chose to study for a Business with Logistics and Supply Chain Management Degree.

My work in the oil and gas industry is very demanding, which means I often work long hours. During class hours, I had to leave the classroom to answer calls from clients and calls about work operations. Having to do this while the class was in session was not easy as it meant missing a fair bit of what the professor was teaching. However, the programme’s assignment-based curriculum, comprising self-paced research and project work, enabled me to get through this period of struggle and learn more effectively. Despite the difficult circumstances, I eventually completed my programme with Second Class (Upper) Honours.

On the whole, the programme has taught me several important lessons, including the need to collaborate well with clients so as to nurture better working relationships. The knowledge and skills that I acquired through the programme have helped me to build a strong rapport with my clients and established a more credible and trusting relationship with them.

Northumbria University First Class Honours Graduate (2021)

I chose to study for my Bachelor’s Degree at Northumbria University because of the programme curriculum and its flexible schedule. Even while having to juggle between studying, a demanding full-time job, and supervising my child’s studies, I managed to complete it with First Class Honours.

Upon graduation, I was promoted to consultant, tasked with handling global portfolios, and received a significant increase in salary. Additionally, my company has agreed to sponsor my upcoming MBA Degree programme, where I have been accepted by another overseas university using my current qualification.

I would certainly recommend Northumbria University to others. It has maximised my post-college and career opportunities, allowing me to have a better grasp of my future.
