Graduates’ Testimonies

MBA must fundamentally be a journey of mental, physical and emotional nourishment … of knowing oneself and how one blends with other like-minded individuals. The WIM-UEL MBA provides an excellent medium to complete the journey, in all aspects of programme substance, delivery and support, found lacking in many other programmes. Lecturers challenge the students, so that when the time comes these students become worthy to be called a Master of Business Administration.”

Pursuing an MBA may be a tough decision for many that includes me. I was lucky to be introduced to MBA with WIM- UEL as throughout my working life attending this was among the best experience I’ve ever had. The intensity of it was mostly felt through active interaction with fellow classmates and professors, and this continues after graduation. Most importantly, I am now an MBA graduate from WIM-UEL with an improved networking connection, excellent socialising skills and this has definitely raised me to another level of lifelong education achievement.

An MBA programme is all about continuous life-long education in personal and career development. Thus, an MBA programme enables the graduate to learn the skills required to be a well-equipped person and even better employee in the workforce. The WIM-UEL MBA programme just exactly that and more! With a high calibre team of academic staff as well as competent and friendly administration staff, it was the best decision I made in my career to embark on this educational journey. With the flexible schedule for lectures and the opportunity to mingle with peers I highly respected from various industries, I thoroughly enjoyed attending each MBA session at WIM’s dedicated learning facility.

I wish to affirm that the WIM-UEL MBA programme absolutely delivered its promise of quality lecturing and coursework. I felt very proud to have accomplished with distinction what I initially thought was beyond my reach. It would have been so had it not been for the remarkable opportunities and strategic tools offered by WIM-UEL. The quality of the dedicated and committed lecturers with their interesting insights surpassed my expectations. Their ever-friendly and reassuring guidance deserves full recognition. By far, the most motivating part of the programme was that the carefully planned classes were held during alternate weekends which suited the working executive comfortably. The group presentations, furthermore were a phenomenal way to bounce off ideas and the courses to life while simultaneously contributing in a real sense to the companies that we work for. It has been my pleasure indeed to have journeyed with WIM-UEL as it has greatly enriched my experiences and widened my understanding of the various perspectives. WIM-UEL provides a framework to identify the key business challenges illustrated with several cases studies of the successful and failed organizations that unlocked my thinking to address the problems.

The MBA journey is truly inspiring. It is not just a step in the right direction but a quantum leap towards enhancing your career and professional goals. The WIM-UEL MBA programme is therefore, highly recommended in this pace paced and dynamic environment. I wish to sincerely extend my deepest appreciation and gratitude to the principal and staff of WIM. I wish WIM every success in every way.

The MBA programme offered at WIM College provided me with the invaluable opportunity to be exposed to parts of a business organisation beyond my area of specialisation. Though the programme was challenging, the stimulation and interactions I had with my course-mates who came from diverse industries made learning fun and captivating all times. Lesson learned in and out of class with the many friends I had made here, provided me with the necessary exposure to do well in my workplace.
