Headshot “The Essex MBA is an international course, grounded in the entrepreneurial spirit of the South East of England. With a global cohort, students develop a detailed understanding of international issues, while the local region gives them examples of growing businesses. We create a dynamic learning environment in which students learn as much from each other as they do from faculty and visiting speakers. We’re careful about the students we select for the Essex MBA; if you think you can contribute to the learning experience of others as well as take hold of your own future, please get in touch.”
