Youhan Doctor a Middlesex MBA Graduate and  Account Manager at DP World summed up his experience at the University “ The whole idea behind doing an MBA was to improve my business and professional acumen and give me a cutting edge over the competition. The Middlesex MBA, surely has contributed to this, and I can see the benefits now. The whole approach was not one of studying an MBA, but actually experiencing it. All relevant management models were illustrated in a very practical way, and ensuing projects and assignments highlighted effective use of these. Currently, in my job profile, where I have been able to get more involved in strategic planning, credit goes to the Middlesex  MBA”.
