MSc Business with Marketing (2018 - 2019)

I will always remember my first day WBS, it was the beginning of term where I attended a first-term briefing session and received general information regarding my timetable, and the schedule for the entire course. I was a bit surprised when I looked around the lecture theatre because the majority of my classmates were from outside the UK and Europe. Many of my classmates were from China, Thailand, Kenya, Portugal, India and Kazakhstan, and I was excited by the fact that I had joined a truly global institution.

I have always enjoyed meeting new people from different cultures and learning from them, and this happens every day at WBS. During our group discussion on the topic of international market expansion, one of my classmates volunteered to share her opinion and ideas about the East Asian market, which was very different from my perception. By listening to other students whose perspectives differ from mine allowed me to acquire new knowledge, and broaden my international outlook. I believe that this is one of the greatest advantages of studying at WBS, where you are surrounding by numerous international students who you can learn so much from.
