(Student Profile)

Richa Misra; MSc in Technology and Innovation Management

3670.jpg ‘I can without any doubt state that studying at the University of Sussex has been one of the most profound experiences of my life. Be it the international environment or the comprehensive list of options to chose from to pursue academic interests, I believe every programme at this University has its own unique offering.

‘I had a fantastic time studying on my MSc in Technology and Innovation Management. The classroom environment was friendly, and learning was kept interesting by means of various activities and exercises. The faculty members are also very inspiring and readily available to offer help.

‘There are also great opportunities available to students. One of these was Enter-priZe 2010, a student ideas competition, which I participated in and won the first prize. More than the sense of achievement that this experience instilled in me, it was the exposure it provided me with, the opportunities it opened, and the knowledge I gathered while I was preparing for the competition. ‘Overall, I am really satisfied at having had such memorable experiences during my stay here, which I am sure to cherish all my life.’

(Student Profile)

Felipe Jara; Director of Innovation Management Projects and Consulting, Fundación Chile

3671.jpg ‘I came to study at the University of Sussex because the professors at my undergraduate university really recommended it. My expectations were very high, but totally fulfilled once I arrived.

‘My MSc in Technology and Innovation Management at SPRU, Science Policy Research Unit, allowed me to make contact with cutting-edge researchers and practitioners in a vibrant community focused around the issues of innovation. My degree opened up lots of opportunities for me. After completing my studies, I had the good fortune to work in a number of very interesting projects and places: within social technological innovation for schools; as an innovation manager practitioner in one of the biggest copper companies in the world; and now at a large technology transfer institution.

‘Sussex has definitely had a big impact on my career, and on my life.’
