IT & Strategic Innovation Masters (MSc): What our students say

Student profiles

Don't just take our word for it – here's what students say about what it's like to study at Kingston University.

Yinka Salami

Name: Yinka Salami
Course: IT and Strategic Innovation with Management Studies MSc

"In September 2012, I completed the IT and Strategic Innovation with Management Studies MSc, and I thoroughly enjoyed my experience throughout the year. This masters programme was very interesting, as well as being very challenging and academically stimulating. One of my many highlights was the final project, because it required maximum effort and concentration to complete its development. I immediately realised that each module provided its own individual challenges, such as developing a new system, or learning how to solve scenario provided problems. All my modules required me to conduct background research based on that topic, while the research helped to improve my knowledge and understanding about that subject.

The decision to choose this particular MSc course was based on the context and the features of the course. At the time, I thought that this course would allow me to expand upon my knowledge in both IT and business and enable me to continue on from my undergraduate degree, while providing me with further challenges, theories, and new concepts. This type of course would benefit people who are interested in establishing their own companies, because it provides you with the fundamentals of how to compete within an industry sector, or market place.

I am currently working as an engineer for Dell. I have a few years' experience at the company and throughout this time, I have been assigned to various companies and organisations. My assignments include the NHS, borough councils and some prestigious companies for several months at a time. However, my objective is to obtain a full-time position within the IT industry to obtain more experience for the next couple of years. There are areas and roles that I am keen to get into, which include DB programming, software developing, and systems architect etc. Then my aim is to try to establish my own company, of which my ideas and the blueprint is yet to be finalised."

Name: Isha Nunkoo
Course: IT and Strategic Innovation with Management Studies MSc

"I completed my IT and Strategic Innovation with Management Studies MSc in 2008 and am now working as an IT consultant for Fujitsu UK, the third biggest IT consulting and services firm in the world.

"After completing my BSc(Hons) in Information Systems at the University of Mauritius, I worked for a year in industry on Oracle Technologies. I decided to do a masters degree in the UK, but was quite specific about finding one which deals with strategic decision making.

"I am convinced I made the right choice by coming to Kingston. The lecturers are highly qualified and involved in relevant research projects. They bring a lot of enthusiasm and current knowledge to their lectures, and their learning materials are of very high quality. I was awarded a teaching assistant scholarship, which was a great relief financially.

"As an international student, an important part of my time at Kingston University was meeting people from around the world and sharing experiences. I made so many friends that I never felt too far from my country, Mauritius. It's been an unforgettable experience.

"It would have been extremely hard for me to get work experience in the UK without my masters degree. I strongly recommend Kingston University, which has paved my way into a challenging career in such a highly respected IT company."
