The MBA journey is a challenge that requires dedication, drive and commitment to overcome the amount of work involved to achieve the satisfaction of completing the modules and then concluding the quest with the final dissertation. In order to succeed in this undertaking, it requires many hours of work and perseverance, not only yourself but your support team as well. It was therefore a great pleasure to work with highly motivated and committed staff from the university and Stafford Global that provided the support required. Stafford staff were exceptional in helping with the registration, financing and providing the workshops to enhance the experience of online postgraduate study. Highly recommended as this degree is not only career enhancing but opens the mind to explore, question and critically assess your internal and external environments.
The online route to studying, particularly as a mature student, provides a truly worthwhile and valuable experience. It allows you to work at your own pace and at times that are suitable to you. The more effort you put it in, the greater the reward.
The online staff are brilliant. Sometimes I felt stupid asking questions but I never got an annoying reply from any of the online team – they are just brilliant. So yes I would definitely refer this to people who have an interest in studying online – Edinburgh Napier rocks!
I have been working for 15 years now, so it was difficult for me to go for a full-time MBA course. With my limited time available this was the option and I really enjoyed doing that.
Studying the MBA at the University of Northampton through Stafford is a top-notch option for any student seeking individual attention, knowledgeable and experienced professors, and a more personal MBA experience than a larger program could offer. Fortunately, because of what I learned in this MBA program I am able to coach the non-MBA folks through it, helping my team to identify trends and clues and efficiently use the model to simulate the different levers and tradeoffs that drive sound decision-making. I would definitely recommend the MBA program at the University of Northampton through Stafford Global because it’s a good value for anyone who wants to succeed in management and organizational leadership.
Hello, my name is Clinton D’Sa and I am the dep. General Manager at Basem Int’l General Trading Co. based in the State of Kuwait. With being appointed as the Dep. General Manager it became apparent the need for me to broaden my horizons, and learn the hidden aspects of conducting and managing a Business. Hence, an MBA seemed like the ideal qualification required to satisfy my needs. One of the major obstacles I faced was the humongous amount of variety and options of universities to choose from with an insane amount of formalities and documents required etc. A Tough Decision and a tedious time consuming chore to say the least. To my rescue comes Stafford Associates. I first heard of the good reviews of Stafford by word of mouth from close friends located in Dubai itself. After contacting them, they simplified everything for me and guided me from the beginning i.e. selection& enrollment right up till I received my degree in my hand. To put it simply, “Stafford simplified and organized my selection, enrollment and decision process. Coordinated and followed up my requirements on my behalf and just made things overall much easier, plus doing all of this with the highest degree of professionalism and courtesy”. I would definitely wholeheartedly recommend anyone interested in acquiring a MBA degree or other further studies in the Middle East area to contact Stafford Associates.
I started my MSc in Human Resource Management and Training distance learning course with Leicester University in February 2017 with the assistance of Stafford in Dubai. Stafford provided me with extensive information every step of the way starting with support during the process of choosing the right course and university for me, followed by the application and payment processes. All my questions and queries were replied adequately and promptly, I was even assisted during the weekends. I am still at the beginning of my course but enjoying the flexibility of the distance learning option as I also have a full time job. The course is challenging but also very interesting. The rich online resources, continuous tutorial support and opportunities for online interactions with other students are great tools which enrich my experience and help me with my studies.
I opted for this course because I wanted to enter the teaching field. I have a MSc in Finance, but being a mother three young girls I wanted to opt for a career that would allow me to juggle home and work comfortably. I particularly favor the PGCE (PGCert) of Dundee because it gives me the option of returning to the program and completing the diploma or the MED should there be a need. The laws surrounding the teaching requirements tend to change and having this door open allows me to continue from where I have left of. I enjoyed studying both modules thoroughly. Although, I was anxious with having no books in my hands and space to highlight and scribbles notes as has been the case with my previous studies, I soon developed a likeness for reading online. The University Library holds a wide range of books, journals, articles and other sources, which I found extremely useful. The tutors have been supportive and so has the Stafford staff. The workshop in particular was a brilliant start to the program. I have recommended the program to several of my friends and I am happy to continue passing on this recommendation.
As a current student of PGCert, as part of MEd at University of Dundee, Scotland, I have really enjoyed studying my first module of Leadership, Change and Organisational Development and felt that all the information was relevant to my teaching experience. My tutor was very kind and helpful. Due to the fact that this is my first online course, I missed the real contact with a tutor especially while preparing the final assignment. However, at the end, I have successfully completed my first module with a support of my tutor. My current studies of the second module Reflecting Upon Leadership in the IB include online tutorial which is a great help for students. I am enjoying reading the module materials and I hope to complete this module as successfully as the first one and even more successful. All my experience with Stafford has been positive in terms of services and communication. I am looking forward to see the benefits of this program in my further career!
My husband, Rohit Ramachandran and I, both, wanted to do our MBA in 2002 to further our career ambitions. We then came across and were very impressed with the structured learning approach of Leicester University and the support offered by Stafford Associates. We met a group of executives from various fields of work as our colleagues and everyone shared valuable real life experiences across industries such as Oil and Gas, FMCG, Aviation, Shipping and more, during our discussions in class. The program offered us a good mix of best management theories and real life case studies where these theories and principles could be applied for a better outcome. The most important learning from our MBA was critical thinking of and challenging the existing practices and processes. The MBA allowed us to become more confident of turning ideas into reality. It allowed us to develop a network of contacts and build valuable friendships that last to date. We highly recommend Stafford Associates as a valued partner in delivering the MBA course with the help of highly qualified professors and lecturers in a warm and supportive environment.
