About You

I graduated from Stirling University in June 2015 with a degree in Accountancy, but wanted to learn about other areas of business, such as marketing which I knew this course would offer. I knew someone who put me in contact with Richard Bent, the programme leader, and after having had a meeting with him, decided that this course would be beneficial.

 

"I think this QMU degree has further improved in me the skills that employers and looking for, such as teamwork. The advice that I would give prospective postgraduate students is to definitely undertake a master’s – they won’t regret it!"

The Course

I am confident that this course will lead to a good job at the end of it. The work load is manageable as long as you start tasks early and do not leave them to the last minute. I am undertaking a part time weekend job whilst doing the course. I think this QMU degree has further improved the skills in me that employers and looking for, such as teamwork.

Life after Graduation

I would like to get into a general management role, but not sure in which industry at the moment.
