Jakob Rametsteiner
MSc Marketing & Strategy (2021 - 2022)

While gaining theoretical knowledge might seem like the foremost learning of a postgraduate degree, I approached my Master's at WBS intending to develop and grow as a person.

I like to offset many hours spent in the library and on group work with engagement in the wider Warwick community as a postgraduate representative at the Professional LGBTUA+ and Allies Network (PLAN), or as Course Representative of the Marketing & Strategy cohort. Both roles have allowed me to grow my network by meeting WBS’ brilliant students, academics and visiting professionals. I’ve also evolved my leadership and organisational capabilities in interactive sessions such as chairing committee hearings or delivering workshops.

Aside from education and development, there are also some great social and cultural opportunities. Most recently I enjoyed two WBS-organised trips to Warwick Castle and Stratford upon Avon, which gave me the chance to mingle with other WBS postgraduate students. We spent two lovely afternoons touring the castle grounds and the historic Shakespeare town, which I felt students that had not been to the UK before particularly enjoyed.
