Student Profile(s)

Sam Feathers

“I chose this course as I had never studied business management or bioprocessing before, therefore immediately studying the two subjects in addition to science/biotechnology at Masters level was a challenge I wanted to succeed at. My highlight of studying here has to be the amount of resources available for students to study; compared to other univerisities, Warwick just seems to have something that supports you throughout your studies.

I have gained a working knowledge on how science and business are intricately linked, with both aspects influencing each other much more than I previously anticipated. The course has many, many real world applications so you really get to understand industry much better. By the end of the year it felt like second nature to stand up and talk for 10 minutes or so. This degree impacted me in multiple ways, but importantly it gave me a reinforced determination and mental resilience.

The course is hard but worth it, you will meet a lot of people at Warwick both on and off the course from all over the world, some of whom will end up being friends for life. Warwick will give you the opportunity to achieve to the best of your potential and maximising your time here will benefit you greatly. “

“After finishing my studies in Biology, I realised that I had to turn my wishes and talents into a career. Marketing and Communication seemed the perfect choice and made me search for a Masters degree in Business Management. But I chose Warwick’s degree as it has two major advantages; it’s top 10 in Business Studies and in general in the UK. It also provides a Masters degree which combines Biology & Business Management!

This degree offered me not only deep knowledge about Business Management but it also broadened my horizons in several ways. Firstly, studying abroad helped me improve my English and learn how to communicate effectively, both written and orally in a different language. Secondly, diversity was so high, in terms of nationality, within the students, thus you are brought closer to different cultures from across the globe! Thirdly, studying in Warwick made me gain and work on several skills, such as team-working, being able to present in front of an audience, time management, multitasking etc.”

“I wanted to move into the ‘business’ aspect of science, so I began researching what further studies I could do, both to improve my understanding, and to improve my chances of getting hired.

The best thing about the course and Warwick were the industry experts coming in to teach us, the community feel of the course and all the things that Warwick does for its postgrads.

I gained a stronger work ethic and a working understanding of the business of science. The MSc helped me progress faster as I am now a Junior Strategic Planner and I think (well as far as I am aware) I'm the youngest one in our global network.
My tip for prospective students is don't do it if you're not prepared to put the work in. But if you are it will be one of the best years of your life."

“My first impression of the campus was that I thought I would never fit in but the highlight of this experience are the bonds that I formed with people from different nationalities as well as the skills and life lessons that were gained in a relatively short period of time.

The best thing about the course was the broad spectrum and depth of knowledge that I gained after completing the course that will certainly be utilised after the course ends. I have now developed a passion for industrial processing and one of my future goals is to now own and manage my own company in Jamaica.

The dissertation was very instrumental in my choice of future career plans. I gained a lot through independent reading and research and I hope to utilise what I learned through the course and the dissertation to guide me in establishing my future company.”


Patrick Mwirigi

“This is the best course for anyone who has a passion for both science and business. Especially if you are passionate on health-related field and you want to start a business around that area. Every module was fun and fascinating with valuable information. After doing the programme I can comfortably say that I have transformed and I am DIFFERENT.

The first few days of the programme were difficult and it took me time to get used to the tutors' accents. However, over time I was able to acclimatise and everything became normal. The course is quite intensive and I was busy, there were assignments, presentations and deadlines to be met. However, looking back I can comfortably say that I have gained the necessary skills to succeed in both the scientific and business world and I can't wait to go back and start building my bioprocessing company with my new knowledge and mindset.”
