“I had very good support from the academic staff, who were always just a click away and could answer my questions”
– Neelesh Sawoky

Neelesh Sawoky works as the Head of Internal Audit at Bank One in Mauritius. He studied for his MBA online from Mauritius, completing it in 2010.

Topping up to the MBA in just one year

I already held a BSc (Hons) degree and was ACCA qualified, but I wanted to gain a masters degree to prepare me for higher managerial responsibilities.

Because I held an ACCA qualification, I was able to take a one-year professional top up route.

I'm now a better manager and leader

I now have a better understanding of how businesses are managed, how to deal with their operations, marketing and human resources, taking into consideration the competitive environment.

The MBA has also allowed me to develop my soft skills and also to select the appropriate leadership skills for various situations.

Online study was perfect for my busy lifestyle

I head the Internal Audit Department of a commercial bank in Mauritius so I didn't have too much time to devote to my studies.

The online course meant that I could study wherever I was with an internet connection. So I could study anytime in the evening or at weekends.

I was well supported throughout my MBA

The online teaching material is easy to use, allowing students to browse easily.

I also had very good support from the academic staff, who were always just a click away and could answer my questions. They were also available on the phone everytime I needed them.

My message to students considering the Derby MBA
