The international element of Aston was a very important driver for me as I wanted to make maximum use of the exposure I was getting here in the UK. A second important driver was the orientation of the University in general towards industry and careers. Beginning a career in the UK was an aim for me and I wanted a university that could help me achieve that aim, which it has.
The MSc Business and Management course is a great conversion course from a non-business background since it covers a lot of ground across diverse areas such as finance, strategy, marketing and human resources. While that foundation across subjects is great, the course also gives the student an opportunity to build a focussed career in any one of those areas, which for was finance.
