Get a flavour of what you'll study on the Cardiff MBA

Professor Calvin Jones introduces the module Global Challenges and Strategic Decision Making.

The great thing about being a Client Manager at Gartner is that there are no regular days. I might have a client workshop or presentation, an internal solutioning session, research, time spent on client deliverables for an engagement, or many other activities. Studying at Cardiff Business School really developed my critical thinking, problem solving and presentation skills, all of which come in handy every day.
