We spoke to AIB MBA Graduate Bianca Pedrosa about her experiences with the programme and learnt of her reasons for choosing AIB.

Why did you choose AIB as your provider?
I was attracted to AIB as it was an accelerated 12 Month MBA. I also liked the fact I could do it by distance learning as I am from the Philippines.

How did you find the AIB experience?
I found AIB fantastic particularly as a distance learning student – if I encountered any problems whatsoever I could always go onto the forum and ask, or just email student services. They’d get right back to me either on the same day or the next day with feedback from the professors which was really helpful.

Did you enjoy studying via distance learning?
I did – it has made me more independent and self-reliant. I also feel more responsible in a sense because I had to manage my time wisely and be really organised to be able to get all of my materials together and submit everything on time.

Was the AIB MBA practical to you?
I was able to immediately apply the knowledge that I learned. Growing up with my family business also helped me understand the concepts more and apply the principles – it was great.
