Jonathan Dabernig Business Interface Director, Atkins Plc
I was keen to study for an MBA because, as an engineer, I wanted to demystify the language of areas such as finance, marketing and strategy. I chose Kingston because the School had a good reputation, the location suited me and I liked the fact the lectures were held at weekends.
