Public Affairs & Government Relations Manager - ORGANIC FOODS & CAFE
“Initially, I had my doubts about the effectiveness of a 100% online MBA course, especially since I had a full time job and a family. However, I was impressed from the start of the programme to the finish. The quality of interactions with the professors and the course materials couldn’t have been better. The challenges the course presented translated effectively into the business world and my current role. My insights into relations, and management of affairs were instrumental in my ability to distinguish myself in this role. In my position as public affairs and government relations manager, I have been able to shape a new trend in corporate relation management. And I see no reason why anyone shouldn’t aim to replicate this through MBA in International Management courses that are affordable and accessible irrespective of your location in the Middle East and beyond.”

Early on in my career, I had hit a roadblock and was sure I couldn’t get the chance to pursue my dreams of climbing higher in sales. Starting as a cold caller with little to know experience in sales required a lot of hard work, which I was happy to do. However, I’ve only been able to see the upward trajectory in my career after my formal education in the blended MBA course. I no longer had to worry about the usual challenges of onsite lectures. This freed up my time to focus both on studies and work. Today, I love my job as a sales executive and I know I am very well positioned to take full advantage of all the possibilities that come with this job. The company values my effort and supports my career objectives knowing that they take nothing from my professional obligations.

Dr. Mishal Tariq
NMC Royal Hospital
I wasn’t a born leader. I was a minimum wage worker while caring for a family of three at the same time. That was by no means easy to combine. The demands of family life and work were always hard to balance. But I knew I wanted more out of my life, not only for myself but also for my loved ones. A trusted friend introduced me to the online MBA program offered by Lincoln and the rest became history. Through my time at Lincoln, I feel blessed to have experienced a whole new old of possibilities that gave me the grounds to overcome so many adversities on my road to becoming a sector leader. The best part, I didn’t have to spend exorbitant sums of money to get my degree.”
“Looking back at my time with Lincoln, I remember so many things very fondly. Scheduled online sessions, challenging assessments, and brainstorming sessions with colleagues. With the sheer amount of experience the online MBA course brings to learners, the course flies by, making it a very fast learning experience. One word of advice, buckle up and enjoy the ride because it will be over before you know it. Though it’s been a fast-track programme, the intellectual development I gained have transformed my entire adult life. Today, I am proud to emulate the assistance that professors, mates, and TAs have given me that helped me to make the most of my online learning experience.“
Asst QA Manager, Americana Food Company
The kind of insight I’ve gained through consensus building, team working, and collaboration has taught me how to bridge individual differences of groups and bring all parties onboard projects. My job as assistant QA manager couldn’t be any more exciting with an MBA in Quality Management. The concept I learnt during my studies came in handy when I first took the role. They’ve allowed me to unite the departments within my organisation around the common goal of maintaining the highest standards of quality. In these turbulent times, the bonds of old are even stronger and I will be forever grateful for the different friends and colleagues I met through Lincoln University of Business and Management. Leveraging my network for growth, international opportunities, and expansion required no extra work since these bonds last for a lifetime.
“To put it shortly, my MBA conversion taught me how to lead with a servant’s heart. It has become the guiding principle around which our organizational culture has been built. This tells you the level of influence the course had on me. Imagine moving from an entry level position to managing director. I communicate daily with colleagues, employees, and clients with world class proficiency. If you ask me, everything that makes my online studies unique are the same things that had the most profound impact on my life. To say the least, the entire experience challenged me and pushed me to the edge, but I leaned into the challenges and in the end, they were all worth it. I guarantee they will be worth it for you too.”
Feras Al Din
The affordability of this blended Executive MBA played an integral part in my decision to complete enroll in the course. I applied for several other programmes but once I did the comparison, this one became the obvious choice. Good thing I didn’t regret it. The value for money was unbelievable and I am still reaping the benefits of my time in the programme. It offered exactly the kind of flexibility I was looking for and enabled me to juggle other responsibilities. Also, I heard it was a “top” MBA course, I didn’t understand what that meant until my first class session. I was struck by the amount of detail and time taken to explain concepts and the practical examples used. All these helped me translate what I’ve learnt to my current role effectively.
