MSc Management 2015-16

Product Management Analyst

Prior to starting the MSc course I had completed my BSc in Chemistry at the University of Sheffield. 

I was attracted to the Management School due to the accreditation of the school and the broad coverage of business topics on the course.  Also, having lived locally for many years I knew that Liverpool was a vibrant and welcoming city.

I received a scholarship as I achieved first class honours in my undergraduate degree. After the completion of my MSc I also received the 'Student of the Year' award for achieving the highest mark on the course.

My postgraduate study at the university was a challenging yet worthwhile experience.  Despite the fact that I completed my undergraduate degree at a different university and in a completely different subject area (chemistry), I found I quickly adapted to the city of Liverpool and the change of subject was refreshing. 

I currently work at Lanxess, a specialty chemicals company, as a 'Product Management Analyst'.  The broad exposure of the course equipped me to work with and understand different business functions - without completing the MSc I wouldn't have the knowledge to do my current job.
