Michael Donohoe, MBA
I chose to study online because of the flexibility. The ability to work out of hours and over weekends meant that the impact at work and home was kept to a bare minimum. I would not have been able to study any other way.
I feel that my personal approach in business is much more 'holistic' as a result of my studies at the University of Derby Online Learning. I feel much more confident as a person; it’s a great feeling.
