Jack Whittaker
BSc International Business and Management and MSc in International Business

"I chose to stay and do my masters degree at Aston because I felt like whilst I had developed a solid foundational understanding of my subject, I really wanted to develop that knowledge further. At this point, I also started to take an interest in exploring a career in academia meaning that this was the next logical step for me. There was also a specific module that I had particularly enjoyed during my undergraduate study and I was keen to write my dissertation on a related area so having staff members at Aston with that particular research interest was important to me."
