'With supportive lecturers you can do it all'

"The lecturers are world class - you won't get any lecturers better than those in the Business School. They are very determined, motivated and push you to do your best."

Kenny Okeowo, MBA Finance

'With supportive lecturers you can do it all' says a Staffordshire University graduate who juggled work and family commitments alongside full time study to complete her MBA.

Kenny Okeowo, from Stoke-on-Trent, was inspired to complete an MBA in Finance at Staffordshire University's Business School because of the 'world class' teaching that she received during her undergraduate degree.

“I didn't think twice about coming back to do a postgraduate course here.” she commented.

"The lecturers are world class - you won't get any lecturers better than those in the Business School. They are very determined, motivated and push you to do your best."

Kenny completed her postgraduate studies while working for a property maintenance company and looking after her family. She said: “It was difficult because postgraduate study is more independent but with supportive lecturers you can do it all.”

“If you need any help just ask because your lecturers are there to help. I will miss my tutors because they are so kind.”

Kenny graduated this summer and is now studying for a further qualification through the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants [CIMA]. She also has a new job as an EMEA Accounts Assistant at Nantwich based company Genus plc.

She added: “Just give it your all because the sky's the limit! My ultimate goal is to become a Management Accountant and I'm on my way to getting where I want to be."
