MBA student story: Samia Atif
Course: Bristol MBA (full time)
Samia Atif describes the challenging aspects of the programme: "My lifestyle completely changed, from being very active and working under pressure on the oil rigs, to coping with a totally different environment: 'student life', but at the same time having to think as a professional!
"I've really enjoyed the MBA and mixing with people from other cultures has helped me to discover a new way of thinking and for every day that I was on the programme, it felt like an adventure.
"The MBA has helped combine my technical expertise with knowledge gained during the programme. As a professional, I intend on using these advanced skills, to raise my prospects of working on an international level. I feel a great sense of achievement knowing that I am better equipped to steer my career in a direction that will achieve my long-term goals."
