How did you find out about Warwick?
I first heard about Warwick from some colleagues back at home who were studying, or had studied, a Distant MBA Program of the University.
Did you consider applying to anywhere else? What made you choose Warwick?
I considered studying at IE Business School and London Business School, but Said Business School, Cambridge Judge, Imperial College and Warwick were on my short list. I chose Warwick because of its high international ranking, the length of the program and the school's location in dynamic fintech and start-up environment of UK. The age distribution of the students and, in general, the diversity of previous cohorts and very positive feedback from current students were decisive factors for me.
How did you apply? How did you find the application process?
The application form and essay questions were mostly similar among all 4 schools that I decided to apply, so applying to Warwick was not particularly difficult for me. I used some online resources to better understand essay questions and how to tackle them but didn't use anyone's help while writing them or filling out application forms.
Who is funding your studies?
I received a partial scholarship from Warwick Business School and I pay the rest myself.
How was your arrival? What were your first impressions/highlights?
I arrived from the Heathrow Airport to the campus on one of the coaches that had been contracted by the university. The volunteer students were also in the airport to help the incoming students and direct us to the coaches, so my trip was very relaxing.
What is the best thing about Warwick?
I like many things about Warwick but if I'd to choose only one thing - it would be its campus! Besides the fact that all the departments are located on one location, the place itself is beautiful and there are plenty of things to do on-campus.
What are you impressions of your accommodation?
I stay on-campus at Lakeside Residence. In general, it is a good place to live and study, close to WBS and sport facilities. But, there are little things that could be improved in order to further enhance the positive experience from staying here.
Have you joined any clubs or societies?
I have joined Warwick Finance Society and Warwick Entrepreneurs. As a member, I join various events that they have been conducting on-campus, include workshops, meeting with various companies and guest speaker events.

We had an interesting 2-day trip with peer MBA students to Wales and climbed Snowdon last term.

What one thing makes you happy about Warwick?
The great people that I had a chance to meet here.
If you were giving advice to a study considering studying here, what advice would you give them?
Warwick is a great place to live and study. The opportunities here for personal and professional development are so many that you will regret having just 24 hours in a day. It is pleasantly located in a peaceful and scenery place away from stress of a big city. So I would advise to give a good thought about Warwick when choosing your school.
