A bachelor degree holder in the business administration from south Asia, I have recently accomplished a BSc (Hons) in Business Studies from the University of Ulster, United Kingdom. While these two qualifications from two different continents are at same academic level, the different learning set up and environment, education system have transformed my knowledge with newer perspectives and better insights. The study has, in fact, driven my academic pursuance with inspiring needs for further qualification at postgraduate level.
When researching on my interests and options, I realized that I could use this opportunity to complement my business area of knowledge with management and finance to accumulate trinity of major business functions and strengthen my academic credentials for competitive edge that could bring me entitlement of maximum employability chances. With so many choices at lots of study places around, The MSc Management with Finance offered at BPP University won my vote of confidence, and I have elected to study this programme over other options.

Due to the practical nature of the learning aims and teaching approach at the university, I will gain efficiency to apply theories to the practice of business, management and finance to develop ability to apply knowledge and understanding to complex issues. The study would promote my academic standing to higher level and provide me the mastery in the role of management for business and finance in particular. I can take leads from my previous and current study areas in business, finance, management at undergraduate levels and gain premier strategic skills by combining and complementing those with this MSc study - the formation and integration would surely enhance my present knowledge and skills and lift my levels to upper points. I can see a clear line of upward progressions in academic depth and bigger qualification that could bring a big change in my future success.
