Mr Pantelis Saridis“I chose the Executive MBA programme not only because of the global recognition of the University of Sheffield, but also because it carries accreditations by three prestigious associations (AMBA, AACSB and UK Chartered Management Institute).
I appreciated the extremely high professional and academic level of both peers and academics, but also the ongoing support and assistance provided by academics, and administration staff when needed. The structure of the syllabus and the content of the classes are adapted to today’s era with real case studies, fully interactive sessions and team assignments resulting to constantly challenging yourself. Through the MBA programme I learnt how to act and react as a contemporary manager in terms of multidimensional issues, interpreting data, numbers and dealing with complex problems, while at the same time gained hard and soft skills in order to make well-weighed decisions in my job.
Moreover, the flexible delivery of modules makes easy to combine work and study, given that it is primarily addressed to executives along with the distinguished and outstanding academics.
The MBA of the University of Sheffield enabled me to improve myself as communicator and negotiator, become the determinant in the progress of my career in the enterprise. In addition, apart from the time-management skills, I also gained managerial and leadership skills that have boosted my career so far and equipped me for the future. The programme did not meet, but actually exceeded my expectations.”

The programme allows participants with busy schedule to easily combine work and study . In addition, the programme leads to the University of Sheffield MBA degree that is globally recognised.
The MBA was not only pursuing a degree. Most importantly, is was about making valuable connections and network among colleagues. After completing the programme, I ended up with many business cooperations with my colleagues, who are now my clients.
I strongly recommend this programme to everyone. It is very demanding, yet very valuable at the end. It is not only about the degree, it is about connections, networking and collaborations.”
