Marketing and Strategy 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.

Nora Beck

Name: Nora Beck
Course: Marketing MA (is now Marketing and Strategy MSc)
Current position: Project manager (Digital Media) at RED Media Consulting

"After my first degree in marketing, I felt I needed to strengthen my competitive edge to get into a saturated job market in my home country, Norway. I had always wanted to live in London, so Kingston Business School seemed the perfect place to do my MA.

"What really appealed about the Kingston course was the large number of international students. The diversity in cultural, academic and professional backgrounds resulted in a melting pot of exciting and sometimes strange ideas and opinions, which was a motivational force as I progressed through the year. I met many inspirational and committed people at Kingston, many of whom I have since stayed close friends with.

"The course itself taught me how to put marketing into practice through a strong focus on research and real life case studies. I left with better confidence in my academic background and my ability to do a good job in a marketing environment.

"My decision to do the MA at Kingston is the best decision I have ever made and I am now well on my way to achieving my career goals. I never made it back to Norway to try the job market again, as I thought I would stay here for a while to see where London will take me – so far I'm enjoying every minute!"

 

Guy Sheppard

Name: Guy Sheppard
Course: Marketing MA (is now Marketing and Strategy MSc)
Current position: Senior product manager at BankersAccuity

"My decision to do a Marketing MA was motivated by my unhappiness with my then career path and my conviction that I deserved and could achieve more; I just needed a fresh set of skills and outlook to enable that transformation. Kingston appealed as the lecturers were friendly and commercially connected, the course balanced and varied, and the campus buzzed with a commitment to success.

"In terms of content, staff and fellow students, the Kingston MA delivered so much more value than I had anticipated. One of its intangible strengths was the atmosphere it fostered; the people you learn from and learn alongside are an exceptional and inspiring bunch. In brief, the course gave me a solid grounding in management and strategy, practical exposure to research and investment cases, and an understanding of business process – my thanks to Stavros for taking the sting out of statistics!

"Looking back, I would not change anything about my experiences at Kingston or my choice to study there. Its value in helping me achieve my career goals has been unquestionable and it has given me so, so much. I have left Kingston with a close group of driven and intelligent friends, a passport to a new career, the ability to offer my employer a host of skills, and the confidence to push myself to tackle difficult assignments without breaking stride – how can you put a price-tag on all that?"
