Student reviews for Kingston Business School
Dan O’ Neil Founder/CEO, LoveBox music festival
I wanted to sharpen my technical business knowledge and become more strategic in my entrepreneurial pursuits, so chose Kingston for my MBA. It was both challenging and rewarding.
Jacqueline McCouat Leader Services and Client Value, IBM Analyst Relations, Europe
The Kingston MBA enabled me to achieve my goals moving from HR to operations, to corporate and then consulting, before moving into my current role with IBM. It was the best option I found in terms of scope and quality, part-time delivery and excellent value for money
Alexey Komissarov Moscow City government minister
While studying for my MBA, I realised the benefits of introducing additional finances and human resource policies, which resulted in a marked increase in productivity at my company.
Imran Khan Managing director, Financial Software Limited & Investment Software Limited
I always knew Kingston had a solid reputation; what I did not know was that the Kingston MBA would turn me from a project manager to a director, then a managing director and now an entrepreneur.
Julie Hopes, CEO, The Conservation Volunteers
My MBA gave me a huge amount of confidence because it gave me the tools to help me get to grips with new situations quickly and also helped me understand my strengths much more clearly. I’ve just made a huge career change, which I don’t think would have been possible if I hadn’t completed my MBA.
Louise Halliday Head of Marketing and Digital at Royal Albert Hall; and Kingston Business School Advisory Board member
Ultimately, the MBA taught me not to be afraid – of presenting, of questioning, of expressing an opinion or of pursuing a new career.
Andrew Haines Chief executive officer, Civil Aviation Authority
My Kingston MBA was probably the single biggest step I took in transforming my career prospects: partly because of the great business grounding it gave me, but also because it gave me confidence that I could hold my own in a diverse business environment.
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.
Mike Adamson Managing director – Operations, British Red Cross
The key for me was that all the Kingston assignments were related back to a real work environment, so they were relevant and useful, rather than purely academic.
Karen McDonald, Willams de Broe
Three main reasons made me choose Kingston Business School for the MBA. Firstly, the location: it’s in a gorgeous spot in Kingston in London, so it’s easy to get to and well secluded. Secondly, it’s well priced; and thirdly, it’s well accredited. So the combination of those three were very important
Danesh Banajee, Full-Time MBA Entrepreneur
Right across the course there was an emphasis on the practical aspect of business rather than just studying theoretical business knowledge.
Neha Dave, Analytics Accenture
The main purpose of the study trip to Moscow was to get a global perspective on business and the interdependency of businesses around the world. The assignment work for the Global Business elective was a good learning experience, with group assignments done by a mix of students from Russia and London.
Alexander Baker, Jubilee Financial Products
Kingston Business School, and especially the MBA, has a very good careers department that helped me choose my next path after the MBA. The careers support you get is fantastic, and I was given excellent advice that helped me progress into my new career. My background was asset management and I was looking to go into management consult...
Angela Jenkinson, London Borough of Hammersmith and Fuham
The Kingston MBA changed my way of thinking. I developed a far more critical, analytical and long-range management approach, and improved my abilities.
Kingston Hill is a very beautiful campus. The newly built Business School and the teaching facilities are a great addition. Voula Loizou, Assistant Branch Merchandiser, Cyprus
My current role is a business manager and my reason for studying an MBA through the distance learning route is basically to fit my lifestyle. I studied with Kingston because it's based in London and they had the distance route. The UK educational establishments have a good reputation all over the world. Tamara Abu, Business Manager from Nigeria
I chose to study the MBA by distance learning because it affords me the opportunity to study and work at the same time. A UK degree is of very high standard and will give me an edge in a competitive market. Adoi Elaigwu, Projects and Operations Manager from Nigeria
All of the staff have been very helpful so far, and are keen to help out. That is something I have previously had experience with: there are always people to help students out at Kingston and they are willing to put the extra effort in to see people succeed. Muneeb Khan, Relationship Manager from the United Arab Emirates
Without reservation, I can say that the Kingston Business School MBA has served as a transformational experience to both my professional and personal life. Not only did the MBA provide a rigorous and comprehensive curriculum, but most importantly it has been the extremely valuable network of peers and professors that have helped give rise to my ...
I studied the Masters of Business Administration (MBA) at Kingston, finishing in February 2010. I'm not going to lie, it was a difficult year but I made lifelong friendships with classmates and lecturers and I know that I would not be where I am now without the MBA. Directly because of my studies, I am now running a project that is connec...
The Kingston MBA was a challenging and enjoyable experience. I chose Kingston Business School for various reasons; however the most important of these was its calibre as a triple AMBA-accredited business school. Other reasons that weighed on my mind were the strength of the teaching staff, the content of the course and as a result, the value for...

The Business School is located in London which allowed easy access to real-world business. S...
Oliver Holliday also took his Global Business elective at the Academy of National Economy in Moscow in January 2012. On a personal level, the trip was a great opportunity to visit Moscow, as I had not been to the capital before. Kingston University organised a night tour of the city – it was a fantastic sight to see Moscow lit up at night. Pa...
