Irfan Arif was a Senior Manager, Customer Care at Mobilink Pakistan and based in Lahore when he joined the USQ Australia masters program at MDi Business School. Like many other telecom executives from Mobilink and other telecom companies, he had a very demanding work schedule and was looking for an MBA program that provided flexibility for working professionals, a contemporary curriculum and an internationally recognized qualification.

He graduated from the USQ MBA program (with Project Management specialization) in June 2013 and this is what he had to say about his experience:

As a working professional, you don’t just need another qualification; you need that competitive advantage that can take you to a higher profile in your professional life. The USQ MBA at MDi Pakistan provided me that competitive advantage and that too with a flexibility that enabled me to manage my time and balance my commitments at work and study.

However, the real value of the program is in the quality of the course materials that are not only of very high academic value but also provide great insights into today’s business issues and thus prepare the student for the challenges of the real business world.

And of course, getting an International degree right here in Pakistan while continuing the job is of great value in terms of the significantly lower investment compared to going abroad.
