Joseph entered the course with a background in accounting, and says the skills and business training he received helped stabilise his career. “I grew more competent in the job, and it helped me become the “go-to” man in the department.” Joseph enjoyed the flexibility of his programme, which provided him with a good work-life balance, and the ability to work at his own pace. “I could study on the road, I could study at home, I could study after work, I could study before work. For me, those are aspects you don’t get on a strict, rigid on-campus programme.” With the knowledge and skills he developed while studying this degree, Joseph says he hopes to go on to become the CEO of his own business. “I recommend London School of Business and Finance’s online programmes because you don’t have to leave your job to achieve your academic goals.”
