Kelliann Flies High: MBA enrichment weekend activity


MBA High Flyer Kelliann

Kelliann, like many Royal Holloway MBA students, likes to take the opportunity to maximise her UK study experience by taking in as much culture as possible.  Pictured here in front of Stonehenge, about an hours drive from campus, the world heritage site was the key pull factor behind a weekend visit to the west country, which also included the chance to visit the Christmas market at Bath.  (Bath was founded in Roman times and named literally because of its source of warm water)  

Early December is the business end of term 1, with MBA candidates fully engaged with challenging group projects, individual assignments and preparing for in class tests.  However, achieving an appropriate balance of personal development also includes taking time out to recharge the batteries and clearly there is a long list of world famous "must see" attractions and experiences that form a crucial part of living for a year in London.   

Kelliann hails from South Florida, USA and is using her Royal Holloway MBA experience to broaden and deepen her general management skill set with a view to helping her move industry and fast track her promotion potential as a strategic marketing professional in music and film.

Of course, studying at a prestigious University of London College gives her access to one of the worlds mostly culturally diverse cities, which is also replicated by a very international group of fellow MBA students who come from as far afield as Chile, Nigeria, Thailand, Saudi Arabia, India and China.
