Sussex MBA students explain how they’ve been inspired and supported by academics

  • Video transcript

    I've been inspired by the academics at Sussex because of their enthusiasm for the subjects that they're teaching.

    What I know, from experience, the little issues I've had, they've always been so helpful in helping me.

    You can also work with your professors on building your future career, network with them, ask them how to move things around, where they think you should be placed next because they are very senior industry professionals as well as academics.

    They are always there for me, with an open door, when I go with my crazy ideas, they always have time for me.

    Sussex academics have inspired me to dig much deeper into topics that interest me. A number of ideas and theories have been shared with me that I had never come across before.

    I think one of the best things about Sussex is their faculty and it's what makes Sussex what it is today.
