MBA Advanced Farm Management

My RAU experience

Before studying at Cirencester I worked in a number of financial and retail strategy roles. I saw that the agricultural industry could be an ideal opportunity to use my commercial skills in a very different environment.

The MBA in Advanced Farm Management combined in-class activities with weekly farm visits. As I learnt new theories I was given ample time to consider my past experiences and how I could grow as an individual. The staff were always willing to discuss work on a one-to-one basis.

I’m certain that without the MBA in Advanced Farm Management, I wouldn’t be where I am today.

Through the RAU’s industry connections, I made contact with a start-up agricultural media/finance business who helped with the background for my dissertation. I now work full-time for this company and am excited by the opportunities this new career direction brings. I am certain that without the MBA in Advanced Farm Management, I wouldn’t be where I am today.
