What course are you currently studying?
Why did you choose to study a master’s at the University of Liverpool Management School?
I researched the University and the programmes that were being offered. The Operations and Supply Chain programme had the modules that I was looking to immerse myself in. Moreover, it is deemed as one of the top public universities in the United Kingdom while being part of the prestigious Russell Group. I also looked up the multiple resources provided by the university to students which would help me with my studies during the programme.
What’s the best thing about studying your programme?
The faculty is extremely credible and their view on differing opinions on practices that are used in the business world today are very open, they allow students to thrive within the classroom and explore a variety of theoretical concepts that are essential for the future.
How do the facilities in the University and the Management School help you with your studies?
The library has been a great support, the literature available on practically any topic allows me to not only explore within my own programme but concepts that may have links within my studies.
The sports facilities and clubs have provided an atmosphere of openness and inclusivity which allows students to be comfortable within their own skin while also trying out new sports.
What kind of support do you get from academic staff and tutors?
The feedback on the assignments and in-class engagement allows my critical thinking and thought process to evolve at a rapid rate.
Have you accessed any of the support services available to you, such as the School’s postgraduate careers team? If so, how did you find the service?
I have been to the career studio, the ULMS careers team and have used the online CV improvement service offered by the university and they have allowed me to get a better understanding of how to frame my CV in a better way. It has also allowed me to identify what my strengths and weaknesses are through analysing my past work experience.
What do you enjoy most about the whole experience (thinking about any trips, social and extracurricular activities or guest speakers) and what value has that added?
I have really enjoyed the engaging activities on campuses like the part-time jobs fair, the social club meetups and sign-up events and lastly the emphasis on sustainability through the university’s social media platform.
How do you believe undertaking master’s study will help your career prospects?
I believe with this specific master’s degree, I will be able to bring meaningful change within any firm where I am employed as currently the world of supply chain has been disrupted and this allows graduates of supply chain management to make a meaningful impact within the world.
This degree also gives me insight into the world of major leadership roles and how to emerge as a leader within any role that I pursue. The programme allows me to follow routines, enhance my prioritization skills and bolster my technical skills at the same time.
What advice would you give to anybody considering master’s study?
My experience widened my horizon to many things, especially the way I analyse subjects or projects, so anybody pursuing a master’s degree would be subject to this enlightenment. Where their perspective on topics of interest would likely evolve into a different space and make them more agile to change.
