Case studies are a great way of applying theoretical concepts to real-life examples, and gaining a better insight into the HR system of well-known organisations. Not only did this teaching method help me to grasp complex theoretical concepts, but also increased my commercial awareness – a valuable key skill to have.
For students starting an MSc course in September, I have one piece of advice: be open and curious. You have made it to one of the top business schools in the country, you will get a world class education and all the support you need from the professors and the WBS CareersPlus Team. If you do not have a clear idea about your future plans, WBS is the place to help you figure this out, and if you already know what you want to do after graduation, then WBS is the place to achieve your career goals.
I came to WBS possessing work experience in HR. The decision to join this MSc has proven to be very fruitful as it has not only refreshed my knowledge of Human Resource Management but also, due to the contemporary learning approach of the school, provided me with greater insights into the current challenges faced by Human Resources and the organisational processes as well.
WBS sets a high benchmark in terms of the quality of studies. I enjoyed the case study method the most as it involved interactive learning through discussions and problem-solving. Apart from that, the high-tech teaching facilities available at the school make learning easier and more interesting. WBS has a history of excellence and I feel proud being part of it and being able to study and enjoy student life again.

Having studied at Warwick for my undergraduate degree in Psychology, I knew that the University’s reputation was well deserved. I was worried moving from psychology to business degree would be difficult, and I expected everyone else to have much more experience than me but I was wrong. Quite a few of us had a background in psychology, or even subjects like literature.
