I chose Cranfield because it's a very versatile course, it gives you a lot of background in environment and sustainability in a very broad sense. Cranfield has helped me step out of my comfort zone and push myself towards being a better version of myself. The intensive year really helped me a lot. It was a great experience.Vivek Jha, Alumni, (Environmental Management for Business MSc 2022)
