Studying the Online MBA helped me as a person and it helped my business. For every module I studied, I was able to do something to positively improve my business. For example, when we completed the Strategy module, I re-developed my company strategy. With the Marketing module, I redesigned the marketing plan too. After completing the Operations Management module, using the knowledge I had gained, I re-designed an operation in order to manage the health service we provide more effectively.
