Recent graduate Jiyao Xun, credits the course in helping him find a career in Brand Management. After enjoying a successful trainee placement with the Tesco marketing and advertising department, he plans to return to Tesco's head office in Shanghai as a junior brand manager.
'The course excelled in giving me both theoretical and practical perspectives. It gave me an edge in getting one of only two trainee marketing positions on Tesco's first international graduate programme.
I benefitted significantly from the course as I believe it taught me how to dream big, grow from failure and achieve success. I'd never have got where I am without the preparation I received through my studies at the Business School'.
I chose Nottingham to continue my studies due to its reputation as a leading UK business school, promising me the opportunity to progress academically.
The city of Nottingham itself was also an attraction. Its vibrant and diverse offerings cover all interests, and provide a location which can be both lively and relaxing.
The MA in Marketing has offered a balance of theoretical and practical components, which in combination have allowed me to gain a deeper understanding and appreciation of the materials covered. This has been very interesting and insightful to me both academically and in preparation for my future career in marketing.
After completing this course I hope to become a business advisor for a company close to my home town which specialises in supporting new business ventures.
