MSc International Business


One of the greatest influences in choosing to study at the University of Stirling was definitely the beautiful Campus.

As a self-financing student value for money was very important to me, at the same time as securing a degree from a well-recognized University, so the value for money ratio seemed excellent to me. Some of the great benefits of studying at the University of Stirling were the closely intertwined course and teaching content with a broad international scope of study. Furthermore, I appreciated the support of all teaching staff and their constant availability in case I required help. I particularly enjoyed the variety of assignments such as presentations, individual as well as group reports, class tests, and exams and also the diversity of learning styles offered by the use of case studies, business simulations, specific questions, open questions, group work etc. The great support and motivation from some tutors during the year, aroused a great deal of interest for the field of research. I would advise prospective students to embrace the opportunity of participating in the free academic events which the University offers as well as joining a couple of amazing student societies and/or the University’s modern sport facilities during the one-year programme.

After completing my course at the University of Stirling at the end of August 2016, I moved to San Francisco where I am currently undertaking an internship in IT and Innovation Consulting to gain further work experience in the field of Technology and Innovation Management. I would not have secured this internship opportunity without my internationally orientated Business Degree from the University of Stirling. The MSc. will also be of great advantage to me securing an exciting and well-paid job in Berlin when I return from the US next year.
