The programme is rigorous and very demanding.

Courses are very rich in content, providing a wealth of knowledge and practical skills in the fields of business, leadership, and management. One can only pass the online exams by working very hard. SoBaT provides me flexible study opportunity which suits my Work schedules, family life and is very affordable. Without this free study opportunity, it would be difficult for me to come this far.

Flexibility allocated in course components

I was a returning student who hadn’t been in a classroom setting for many years and this was critical to my comfort level and success. Going through the course content level, I found it interesting and got engulfed in the contents. I appeared for the master's course, most of the subjects are linked. The exams were not that easy too to pass.

Please continue offering this excellent opportunity

I can honestly state that the SoBaT's MSc is a demanding program that will test one’s knowledge and resolve. I rate it among the top similar programs offered by reputable business schools globally which charges exorbitant fees for the same quality education. SoBaT satisfies a great need for quality and affordable education globally.

Very robust and challenging programme in every aspect

I am glad that we have institutions like SoBaT that are making it accessible to many. I completed SoBaT's Master of Science In Business Studies and can attest that it is more challenging than other MOOC courses out there. In some instances, the SoBaT curriculum had more detailed information than other reputable business schools.

Study and write exams at your own convenience

I have just finished their master's 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, online exams are very challenging and will bring the best out of someone.
