AIB MBA graduate Alwin Long chats with us about his MBA journey, how it has changed his career and his experiences at the AIB graduation. 

What did you enjoy most about the AIB MBA?
I’m not the most studious person, I’ve never been the kind who would just sit down and read books, however this MBA course is totally different. It is extremely practical – if you go through the textbooks and the type of assignments that I wrote during the degree they are very, very practical.

Has the MBA helped you in your career?
Throughout the entire 12 month programme, I felt that my knowledge grew in leaps and bounds. Whatever I learned I put into a paper, and then that particular paper became a proposal to my boss and my superiors. I definitely believe that the day will come where they will look at implementing some of my ideas in the future.     

How did you feel at your graduation?
It was fantastic – I wouldn’t have missed it for the world. I was there with my family who are the most important people to me and it was a wonderful occasion.
