What do our learners say about Nexford?

Hear from our global learner community — from over 110 countries — as they discuss their Nexford experience (spoiler: happy learners!)

Meet Michael, Nexford MBA graduates from Indonesia

Michael Ariel is a General Manager Sales & Marketing for a global company in Indonesia. He realized that to get ahead in marketing he needed to procure a Master of Business Administration degree from an American online university. So he turned to Nexford because he realized that to be the best you have to learn from the best.

As a net result his sales have improved day-by-day and he got promoted, which he puts down to his Nexford education and the vital skills he learned during his MBA. He says he can’t wait to share this new-found knowledge with his peers.

Meet Malan Kouame, a Nexford MBA graduate who hails from The Ivory Coast

Malan Kouame is proud of his heritage and even prouder of his achievements that led to him becoming a standout graduate at the Nexford US graduation ceremony.

He is a Senior Investment Manager at GroFin and is hopeful that his Nexford MBA will earn him more promotions and pay raises. With his MBA he is also hoping to expand his influence in the financial industry by operating across most countries in Sub-Saharan Africa.

He feels this is possible as he says that his Nexford education has equipped him with all competencies and skills to make it happen.

Meet Tolulope Babatunde, one of our recent MBA graduates from Nigeria

Tolulope Babatunde works at a global wealth management company and is seeing her career go from strength to strength thanks to her Nexford MBA. Plus she is seeing her leadership skills improve.

She chose an American online university because she did not want her learning to be affected by the ongoing academic strikes at the traditional Nigerian universities and because Nexford allowed her to learn at her own pace, she did not have to take a break from work, or leave her country to get a word-class education.

Meet Sarah Kamau, a current Nexford MBA learner in Kenya

Sarah Kamau is one of our go-getting MBA learners in Kenya who truly believes that she is accomplishing so much more and furthering her career since enrolling at Nexford.

She is doing an MBA, specializing in Global Business, and was interested in Nexford straight away because it was affordable and she saw the value in getting a world-class education that would provide her with the learning style which was far better and more prestigious than that of the undergraduate degree she did previously in Kenya.
