Lifelong Learning ….
… is a term that is often used to refer to self-motivated, on-going and voluntary pursuit of knowledge for either personal or vocational reasons. And distance learning is exactly one of the ways in which this is achieved in the 21st Century.
This is an area in which University of Leicester has created a formidable niche of excellence, and The Guardian University Guide 2014 give credence to this achievement. As I work towards completing my electives, I look back with nostalgia at the enriching experience I have enjoyed applying my learning to work experience and other professional pursuits I have engaged in since I commenced my MBA by Distance Learning.
With all its challenges of time management, commitment and demands on self-drive, I wouldn’t trade this experience for anything and given another option, I know for a fact that I would chose this method of learning over any other.

I hope you make a choice to join the movement!
