"Lecturers in the MBA go the extra mile"
"When the global financial crisis hit, I decided to move out of the corporate world and get a Masters degree. ECU’s MBA program gave me subjects that I was interested in, as well as one that was not too expensive.
Moving into a different country and settling in was a big challenge. At ECU I had lecturers who were accessible at all times, and were willing to go the extra mile to help. The support staff were good and very prompt in responding to any queries.
The facilities were also great. What I enjoyed using the most was the online library. The student portal and intranet can answer questions that one may have. Other good facilities were the Student Guild and the gym.
Completing the Masters degree together with my past work experience has given me a competitive edge over other applicants."
