Why I started in January? "I researched business schools in the UK and their rankings. I discovered Aston had very good ranking and was located in a city that is central to the United Kingdom, Birmingham. It also had a good academic curriculum with the exact combination of knowledge I was looking for - I immediately fell in love with the school and with the city. The option to start my studies in January was an additional benefit. I enjoy the teaching method, the lectures were made easy to relate to. They were as clear as can be and most of all, the lecturers/teachers were pro-active in knowing if we had questions and endeavoured to answer them as adequately as possible and where necessary point us to helpful material."
