Since the Online MBA really is 100 per cent online, it’s not often that we get to meet our students in person. Earlier this year, five students visited campus for an optional workshop with Deloitte – and we felt that it was only right that we seized the opportunity to interview them about their MBA experience!
We’ve created a short video which gives you a real taste for what the Birmingham Online MBA is like, through the eyes of our students. Watch the video and let us know what you think by leaving a comment below.

HARRIET JECKELLS: What surprised me most was how global it was and how media it was. And when you're on the discussion board, you are chatting to people from all over the world.
DR. OMASANJUWA EDUN: There's a very close relationship and interaction with module leaders and module tutors.
ALEX SINCLAIR: Understanding different cultures, yet at the same time the same level of expertise, constantly collaborating, constantly feeding information back and forth.
MARK CANNELL: The university has great industry connections. The Deloitte Consultancy Challenge is just one of the many opportunities that students can come on campus and interact.
ONUR KIYICI: They can share their real experience, what happened in their case. And then you're able to compare those with your experience.
DR. OMASANJUWA EDUN: And you're able to immediately apply those learnings to work, and then immediately see the results.
HARRIET JECKELLS: I think students choose the University of Birmingham because they want a combination of factors. So they want the Russell Group, they want the rankings.
ALEX SINCLAIR: I think it's a level of prestige, but also high-caliber learning.
DR. OMASANJUWA EDUN: I was looking for a university that was well-grounded in research, entrepreneurship, and innovation.
HARRIET JECKELLS: It was the first to have AMBA accreditation. I think that's why students choose it.
ALEX SINCLAIR: Over time, you are slowly progressing, slowly gaining confidence and understanding.
HARRIET JECKELLS: It challenges you. It pushes you.
DR. OMASANJUWA EDUN: It may change your entire perspective for the better.
