Timothy Liddle, MBA graduate from the Australian Institute of Business (AIB) discusses his experience during the programme and how the MBA degree has changed the way he runs his business. 

Why did you choose to study the AIB MBA?
For me, I felt that I had hit my glass ceiling in business expansion about a year ago. I wanted to further my skills, and the AIB programme looked like a really practical way to be able to do it. I was able to work at the same time and really apply the knowledge almost immediately.

How did you find the AIB experience?
I found it very different to a traditional university. I have been to university before and I didn’t like the heavy academia based structure. This programme is very practical, you’re talking to professionals who have been there before and they’ve succeeded. You’re talking to the real deal.

What did you think about the programme content?
It was extremely relevant – if I learnt something on the weekend, by Monday or Tuesday it would be a new policy within my company. To reap the rewards that quickly out of a course, that was something very critical for me. I didn’t have three years to invest in a course, so to be able to do this in only 12 months was brilliant.

How has the AIB MBA helped your career?
As I said before, I was able to apply the knowledge almost immediately – the benefits to my business have been significant. We’ve actually had a 55% net profit increase over the first year since being an MBA graduate which is something I am extremely pleased about.

Would you recommend the AIB MBA?
Definitely – I would tell anyone who is in business to get on board with this course. The rewards that you get out of it are just phenomenal. I would say anyone who is in business and who is serious about business should be doing this course.
