During my BSc in Politics and International Relations, also at the University of Bath, I built-up work experience across Europe and Asia. I was advised by many Senior Executives that a Master’s degree was essential for a high level career outside the UK, and that Business Management would be the most suitable and complementary subject given my BSc.

I chose the MSc in Management for its comprehensive grounding in all aspects of business management, and close links with hundreds of blue chip companies. Moreover, having recently endured a dissertation, the option to take the ‘Practice Track’ and carry out practical consultancy over the summer was very appealing.

Most weeks involve around 12-14 hours of lectures and seminars. On top of this you have a 2-hour career skills session each week. Having not done Maths since GCSE, I found the Accounting and Finance modules difficult, yet extraordinarily rewarding. Going forward in my career, these hard skills will undoubtedly prove invaluable. Furthermore, working in very international groups is an important skill to learn and can be

I am hugely grateful to the Careers Advisors at Bath. Through this service, I was introduced to the Head of Graduate Recruitment at Dyson and coached through the application and assessment process. I am now a Commercial Manager at Dyson. The two year graduate scheme started at their HQ in Malmesbury, followed by an overseas posting for the second year.

After graduating with a specialised degree in Economics from Delhi University, I wanted to learn more about business management. I saw a Master’s as an opportunity to polish my soft skills and gain experience of studying and working in an internationally diverse culture.

The MSc in Management at Bath is unique and highly flexible. My prior experience of investing in the stock markets helped develop an interest in accounting and finance. At the same time, I also wanted to study business management modules. The MSc in Management allowed me to choose my modules and tailor my course to specialise in Finance. This has helped me to develop a thorough understanding about the financial aspects of business alongside the managerial aspects.

Each module that I undertook was highly relevant in today’s business environment. The knowledge gained through the taught modules and the experience of their practical application through the Practice Track and other projects has tremendously added to my skill-set. I also made some amazing friends from more than 11 different countries across the world. In such an internationally diverse class, I never failed to learn something new from each interaction.

The School of Management has an incredible career service team. Not only was I helped with choosing the right field of work, but I was also supported through each job application. I also hugely benefited from the career development workshops, seminars and company presentations that were regularly held. Being an international student, it may be slightly more difficult to secure the job of your choice, however, it is very much possible if one works for it. I secured a Graduate Auditor’s position with BDO LLP in Reading, UK.
