“If you want to move forward in your career, you need to be able to adapt to change and use it to your advantage. The online MBA gives you that. You learn about finance, management, human resources, leadership, and innovation. It gives you the knowledge and tools to make better, faster decisions in any number of fields.”
Master of Business Administration (MBA) graduate
After several years working as an accountant in Malawi and Mozambique, Tanyazi Chirwa was looking to open up more opportunities in his career. He’d been taught from a young age that “the future belongs to the learners”, and he was keen to implement this ethos in his own life.
His existing job involved working long hours into the evening and over the weekend. To progress his career, he knew he needed a higher-level management qualification that would give him an edge in the job market.
By studying an online MBA with Roehampton, Tanyazi saw an opportunity to gain a credible, quality-assured masters-level qualification with the potential to transform his life and his career, while continuing to work.
Even before he graduated, Tanyazi was able to start implementing the knowledge gained on his programme within his job, developing a benchmarking system that earned him recognition from his bosses.
Since then, he’s taken it one stage further, getting a new job as a financial analyst with a development finance institution – something that wouldn’t have been possible without his MBA. His office is responsible for sub-Saharan Africa and part of Southern Africa, and he travels regularly, including to Europe.
