Taking a year off work to study for an MSc in Food Economics and Marketing at Reading was a big decision, but one that I haven't regretted for a minute. The course modules really helped me to develop my analytical thinking and build on my food industry experience, thanks to the relevant content, the challenging and supporting staff, and the wide variety of experiences brought to the course by the international student body. I have returned to work in a new, senior management role as Customer Agenda Manager in the Food Strategy Team, a role I would not have been able to undertake without the skills I learnt at Reading.
