My MBA allowed me to think more strategically and introduced me to many useful management tools. It also helped me to think about which parts of business school learning actually pertain to SMEs. Financial Management helped me through our MBO. Being an engineer, the soft side of strategic thinking was particularly useful to me.Tony Snowden, Managing Director of FTL Technology, Executive MBA
