My Surrey experience: Rhian Jones, Executive MBA

"The Surrey MBA has had an immediate impact on my career. I was able to leap ahead of competition and have been promoted before I even finished the course!"

Rhian is now the Lakeside Restaurant and Coffee Shop Manager here on campus at Surrey, and Interim Director of Hospitality.

"What first attracted me to Surrey was its fabulous reputation, inspiring academics and blend of real life business scenarios. I found the Executive MBA programme fits in with a busy life, which was essential for me.  

After studying the Surrey MBA, I am more confident in my own abilities and feel I bring real credibility to a team.

The biggest benefit of my course is the networks I have made. The cohort learns from each other in the classroom and I have made connections who will help with mentoring and career development in the future.

After studying the Surrey MBA, I am more confident in my own abilities and feel I bring real credibility to a team. It has also made me think about organisations in a more holistic way, something I had not considered before.    

The broad spectrum of modules covered were very useful and the opportunity to work with a culturally diverse cohort, on a variety of projects was a definite highlight.

I found I could almost always implement what I had learnt in the class room at work. Particularly around people development and understanding how to develop others."
