“The MSc in Management Consultancy was the perfect place to start my career. The combination of academic learning and practical experience enabled me to grow as a person and allowed a smooth transition into the professional world by providing me with critical skills and a professional network. I learned a great deal from working with people from different cultures and backgrounds on real client projects. I leave this master with a variety of great memories, friends and experiences ready to start my professional journey.”

This is no ordinary Masters, as it combines an excellent opportunity to build relationships with a diverse group of people, who I am still in contact with four years later, with really employable skills. I feel that my time under Kathy’s direction has served me well to develop my career, where I have progressed with Grant Thornton’s Business Consulting Team over the last three years.”
