Whilst looking at potential universities, my first instinct was to approach a careers counsellor to understand my options for studying abroad. I was initially attracted to WBS because of the plethora of opportunities, and extra-curricular activities that WBS offers. The course content and module structure also appealed to me, along with the international reputation of the business school, and the expertise of the professors. I also found the testimonials from previous students really useful when deciding where to study.
The competitiveness and collective calibre of my classmates inspires me, and keeps me motivated throughout my studies. My classmates are very hardworking and knowledgeable, and I have found there is so much to learn from one another. My professors have also inspired me, they are always very approachable, and provide me with lots of guidance and support.
Having the opportunity to study MSc Management has provided me with opportunities to work towards my professional goals whilst expanding my academic ambitions, and I have been given the opportunity to be part of a community of change makers.
The study week that that the programme offers gives you the great opportunity to complete a short programme at a different university across the world. I am really excited to have successfully gained a place at the IE Business School in Spain later on this year.
For students that are starting in September, my advice would be to attend the huge variety of networking events that the WBS CareersPlus Team organise to gain insight into different business areas and to create a network of business contacts for your future.
There are many great things about the programme, such as the wide variety of elective modules and the opportunity to meet classmates from different parts of the world, but if I had to pick out one thing, I would say that the international study trip to Cape Town would be the highlight. As part of the MSc Management course, you are given the opportunity to apply for a place on an international study trip to one of a few locations, such as Cape Town, Buenos Aires, Rome and Brussels. Students get the opportunity to gain a snapshot of how business is conducted in these regions and get the opportunity to understand more about the challenges facing the economy of the relevant location. The trip is funded by WBS which is amazing for students who may be a bit tight on cash!

I previously worked as an engineer with Honeywell in Dubai, working on projects including the The Dubai Mall and Dubai World Central. But I wanted to broaden my perspective. WBS is a global brand recognised all over the world, and studying here prepared me for the competitive business world.
WBS offers many different opportunities to help boost your career: support with job and internship applications; career guidance to help you determine your career path; and practical help with CVs and cover letters.
My Warwick year was a memorable experience in many ways.

I have an undergraduate degree in humanities, and this course allowed me to add a business dimension to my skill set.; the teaching style really accommodates a lack of previous business knowledge. WBS taught me about how business works, from knowing what a balance sheet is, to understanding how modern firms market themselves, and made me more comfortable and less intimidated by the world I entered.
I knew I wanted to go somewhere that would count. I believe the MSc in Management secured me interviews I would not otherwise have got.
