“After a 15 year hiatus from any kind of academic endeavour, I decided to take the Level 6 Certificate in Project Management programme at Malta Business School (MBS). At first, it proved to be a daunting experience, between re-engaging with the basics of a learning environment and juggling demanding work schedules. Over time, I found my feet and began to immerse myself in the programme, consequently widening my horizons and developing my understanding of what project management is all about.
Dealing with the challenges of absorbing significant amounts of information, assimilating complex concepts and negotiating tight deadlines, whilst maintaining other on-going work and life commitments, was a tall order and, at times, I will admit, I was at my wit’s end. It was all worth the effort and sacrifice. On receiving the final result, I felt a deep sense of satisfaction and accomplishment, of knowing I kept my eye on the prize, dug deep and successfully saw it through. It was the most gratifying, proud, and at the same time, humbling moments of my academic life.
I could not have done it without the excellent support provided at all levels by MBS. The programme administrators were life-savers, especially considering the extraordinarily difficult situation due to the pandemic. I found the tutors to be well-informed on all aspects of their respective fields, always ready to coach and guide me with insightful observations and suggestions. They knew when to let me ‘get on with it’ at my own pace, when to nudge me to consider different approaches and when to tell me to ‘pull my socks up’. I deeply appreciate their input which proved to be invaluable.
If anyone reading this is inclined to embark on the significantly challenging and potentially rewarding experience of taking a management programme, it’s a non-decision for me: MBS would, hands down, again be my number one choice.”

“I am a hands-on person. In fact, I obtained my previous qualifications from the Technical Institute, back in the day. I avoid settling within my comfort zone and I am a person who always wants to achieve more. This led me into different jobs with various companies, allowing me to learn how to deal with different people over time. By gaining work experience, I climbed up the career ladder and am now a project manager. I wanted to deepen my knowledge on the subject, so I decided to pursue studies in the field.
After extensive research, I found that Malta Business School offered the best solution for my hectic lifestyle. I enrolled for the Level 6 Certificate in Project Management and never looked back.

I can definitely say that this course has been of great benefit to my career and that this solid certification has helped me think more strategically.
