What our students say

Moving to London to complete my MBA was a once-in-a-lifetime-experience. The Richmond University MBA program challenges students to think critically about pressing business issues in a fast-paced global market. Students gain hands-on experience through prestigious guest speakers and site visits – and have the opportunity to learn about business through a diverse lens of perspectives – both inside and outside the classroom. It is through the program’s inimitable learning opportunities, extensive team-building exercises, and critical thinking requirements that I am well-equipped for my next corporate position

Angela PascarellaMBA Study Abroad

My reasons for undertaking a Richmond MBA were to develop skills in corporate finance. The course covered relevant subjects in finance, project management, economics, entrepreneurship and global marketing strategy. The benefit of the Richmond MBA is that it provides a set of tools that can be used for data analysis and decision making. I would recommend the Richmond MBA as a valuable learning experience. It encouraged me to think strategically and apply learning outcomes that have improved my professional capability.

David LongbottomMBA 2013-2015

The professors I had were absolutely wonderful and full of knowledge – one of the things I liked most of all about Richmond. Being actual industry professionals, their approach is very much applied. This was really important to me. As someone who wishes to pursue strategies as a career, the professors helped me understand how varied the knowledge I need actually is. The teaching groups are so small, each student gets full attention; it is possible to learn so much more. I really liked the fact that Richmond has two campuses; one in Kensington and one in Richmond, I felt I had lots of choices, variety and opportunities; I see my future in London because of this. Studying at Richmond University was a great experience.
