I had been searching the internet for a while, looking for an affordable online Master’s degree which I could do without leaving my job and worrying about the fees. Then School of Business and Trade, a true implementer of article 26 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, introduced the tuition-free Master of Science in Business Studies. I have just finished this programme and one of the things I like, is that the material is excellent and very rich, could outdo a good number of expensive universities/institutions where they charge several fees at exorbitant rates. In addition, the online exams are very challenging and will bring the best out of someone. You study and write exams at your own convenience yet come out fully equipped. Thank you SoBaT.

School of Business and Trade is outstandingly up-to-date. Each module receives careful and comprehensive treatment and consideration through its emerging online technology to provide free education to students all over the world. Some courses can be challenging, however, it provides a great thought provoking learning experience as it gives a well rounded but in depth understanding and testing of each subject. The programme is very well devised: coherent and wide-ranging. More importantly, it is rigorous and challenging. Thank you SoBaT.

I have always looked into taking my education to the next level; however due to lack of financial support it was difficult to do so. Many thanks to School of Business and Trade for meeting my educational needs through their free online bachelor and master’s degree program offered to candidates like me. I just completed my Bachelor of Science in Business Studies, and my dream is to go on to their offered MSc. Program. My hope is that this endeavor continues to grow and benefit others who like me desire to fulfill their dreams. I will recommend School of Business to all those who are coming from the same background as I am. It was great to study at SoBaT.

I was looking for an affordable online master degree. However, most of the online master courses are very expensive and not everyone could afford. One day, I discovered a free online master degree offered by the School of Business and Trade (SoBaT) and I decided to give it a try. Finally, I have successfully graduated with a Master of Science in Business Studies. I hope SoBaT can continue to provide free and quality online education to everyone. Thank you SoBaT for helping me in achieving my dream!
