Dr. Iain Kaan
Managing Director, Aeolian Logic Pte. Ltd. (Roehampton MBA Alumnus)
I was motivated by my desire to learn and grow as an individual. I chose Roehampton University because it has a good reputation, affordable fees, and the flexible class schedule suited working professionals like me. After completing the programme, I experienced career progression. People started seeking my advice for their businesses. It also laid a strong foundation for my current pursuit of a DBA, and I'm about to start a new business in Corporate Training. Studying and working simultaneously was made easy by Aventis and the University. I loved the weekend daytime classes, which allowed me to focus on my studies while building bonds with my classmates. The lecturers and staff at Roehampton University and Aventis were helpful and made learning enjoyable. I would definitely recommend Roehampton University to others, especially senior business leaders. The curriculum is well-structured and relevant. During the programme, I faced the challenge of managing two businesses simultaneously. However, with the support from the university and Aventis, I overcame the difficulties. I'm still in touch with some of my classmates, and I'm excited to work on a new business venture with another Aventis alumnus. Overall, my journey with Roehampton University was transformative, providing me with valuable skills and opening doors to new opportunities. I am grateful for the experience and encourage others to embark on this educational path.
