Tell us about your degree - why did you choose it? What elements of the degree inspired you to study it?
The MBA degree I took with the LUBS opened a great window for me to see the outside world at the time I was with LUBS, which laid a solid foundation for my future development.

What was the best part of your studies here? What did you enjoy the most?
The wonderful classmates who I had been tirelessly working with on each project and assignment, and the professor with a strong Yorkshire accent left me a life-long memory. Thank you LUBS.

What were your career aspirations when you arrived? Do you think the experience and skills you gained here will help/helped you in your future career plans? In what way?
Definitely yes, I would recommend an MBA study to any mature students who pursue a more successful career development.

How has your career progressed since leaving the Business School? Have there been any notable highlights?
It was progressed pretty well, I had a couple of senior manager role in the past, and now I am retired. I am still with a lot of great memories on the time I spent at LUBS.

What are your ambitions for the future?
Spend some quality time with my families.

Do you think your experience and skills gained here will help you in your future career plans? In what way?
It did helped a lot, without my experience at LUBS, I wouldn't be able to grasp those chances when they came, thank you LUBS!

If you are not from the UK, how was the transition to a foreign country? Did the university offer support or services that you found helpful? Can you offer any advice?
I had no complaint on this, totally satisfactory experience, I got all I needed at that time as a foreign student. I miss UK, and I miss LUBS.

What was your impression/experience of the facilities, the staff, your peers, the student union, the City of Leeds and the region itself? What would you recommend to future students?
Wonderful facilities, great people, awesome peer students. My advice is when be in Leeds, be Leeds, enjoy!

What would you say is your defining memory of studying here? (eg friendships made, confidence in your abilities, or any single event that you will always remember?) And would you recommend the Business School to others?
Definitely I will. I love everything about the University of Leeds, the buildings, the facilities, the faculties. I will recommend LUBS to anyone who needs to go extra mile in their career development.
