Student Profiles

Juliette Engelhart

I decided to do a master's degree to become better qualified and have more opportunities in the job market. Since I had a broad bachelor's degree in International Management, I wanted to specialise in a field of my interest. The MSc in Operations, Logistics and Supply Chain Management offered me the chance to do this.

I had heard about the expertise of the teaching professors at Bath School of Management and my first impression, during a Skype interview, convinced me to apply immediately. I liked the concept of studying in a small class with peers from diverse backgrounds. I was particularly interested in the one-year practicum, because it allowed me to work with a real client in a safe environment.

The MSc in Operations, Logistics and Supply Chain Management offers great hands-on experience. The faculty are leaders in the field and we had guest lecturers from different industries. Classes were taught from a theoretical viewpoint but also showed, through interactive learning sessions, how theories turn out in practice.

The School of Management emphasises self-studying; which means you need to prepare for class, participate during class, and study afterwards on your own terms. In the first term, we had a great amount of group work, which we coordinated in a way to meet up after class, enjoy lunch together and then return to the library to work on our projects.

I was very fortunate, living in Bath, to experience one of the greatest places in the UK. The international atmosphere on campus and in the city made it easy to make friends. I enjoyed meeting up with my new friends, going to the local cinema, or chatting in one of Bath's many cafes or restaurants. Society life is also an important part of being an MSc student and it helped me to maintain a work life balance. I joined the Ballroom society and Mountaineering society, which were both amazing.

There are so many skills I have learned throughout the year; negotiation, theoretical concepts, writing skills, project management, time management, research skills, problem solving, group working and cultural awareness are just a few examples.

I'm currently studying a PhD in Supply Chain Risk at the University of Bath.

One of the biggest reasons why I chose this course was that it offers a unique practicum unit. This lets students participate in a real-life project and work with a client throughout the course in a controlled environment.
