Lea Annandale, Applied Leadership & CoachingAfter considering various options to pursue my interest in management and leadership, I selected Monarch Business School as the most suitable for completing my doctorate. The DOAL programme, which is very practice-orientated, creates exciting new career paths and has enhanced my ability to lead with confidence. The programme is very convenient for students who work full-time, as you are allowed to study at your own pace. It offers a demanding curriculum and you have access to learning resources on-line any time you need them. I especially appreciate the dedicated faculty who provide excellent supervision and guidance.
