After the MBA Course

"Every day I apply learning from the Hull Executive MBA to my business life." Rory Clarke, who has a credit and finance background, joined Hull group JR Rix and Sons in 2001 and has been on the main board since 2006.

  • With Rix having multiple business units, from shipping through to property and caravans, Rory wanted to broaden his focus when he enrolled on the Hull Executive MBA in 2010.

"The course was on my doorstep, but convenience was only part of the story," said Rory. "It was the course's high-level accreditations and its structure that sold it to me.

"It was helpful to have four-day blocks of lectures and I found it particularly useful in revealing a greater understanding of the complexities of business and the strategy involved.

"A lot of it is to do with the soft skills around the business environment, the importance of change in an organisation and what stops them functioning properly during change.
