German MBA student Daniela Rochow recently spoke to us about her reasons for pursuing her degree online, and what benefits she believes the qualification will bring to her personal and professional life.
I enrolled on this MBA programme because I felt I wanted to gather some in-depth knowledge of business and management. Also, I didn’t want to drop out of my job to study, which is why I looked for an online programme. So I did some research and came across the Global MBA programme, which is conducted entirely online.
I felt like this was the perfect chance to combine both my ambitions and aspirations. The main challenge is, of course, time management. I’m definitely a morning person, so I usually set my alarm in the morning to have two hours dedicated to university work before I start work at the office.
During the programme I was able to make great contacts with other students. We could work together and exchange ideas about what’s going on in the programme. We were also able to support and motivate one another.
The big advantage of this programme is that there are specific modules that fit to specific topics, such as luxury brand management or digital marketing communications.
I felt like I could really pick different elements of the programme and combine them with the core study areas. This will really help me apply my new knowledge to my career, and help me develop as a professional in the future.
