I wanted to become part of a school that produces successful alumni.
Having completed some valuable courses in marketing at my undergraduate institution, I discovered I had a passion for this field of study and wanted to expand the knowledge I had already gained.
I received an ‘early bird’ discount and a Kent Business School Excellence Scholarship that greatly helped my family financially.
I am glad to have experienced both the American way of teaching and the British way. I noticed that I had a lot more freedom to choose the most suitable way of studying and preparing for classes during my postgraduate studies in the UK.
I was keen on delving into consumer behaviour, innovation management and new product development and, surprisingly, financial and managerial accounting.
I was so impressed with the facilities that the University of Kent provides for its business students.
I benefited from attending the numerous events and classes provided by the University of Kent’s Careers and Employability Service and found them useful when applying for internships and graduate job positions.
I am planning to stay in the UK where I will hopefully start an entry-level position in the field of marketing.
I will employ all the skills that the Careers and Employability Service taught me while finishing my degree. I feel confident applying the knowledge that I have obtained in class in a real-life professional environment. I believe confidence is the key to successfully advance in my career.
I would encourage aspiring postgraduate students to research what Kent offers as each student has their personal needs. I believe Kent provides a great foundation for postgraduate students which can help them jump-start their careers.
