Being a Peer Leader in my final year was a great experience for me. It helped a lot with building my confidence and working for the University was something I had wanted to do.

My time at Southampton broadened my horizons and accelerated my career. It was the first time I was going to be away from home for an extended period of time. My ability to make new friends, connect with people of different cultures and values, work as part of a team and do a lot of individual research are part of the skills I learnt while at Southampton.

My proudest accomplishment may perhaps be the person I became by being a student here. I came to Southampton to learn about business but I am leaving with a bagful of so much more: a new worldview, new concepts, toolkits, mental frameworks and an incredible network of friends spanning the globe. Coming to Southampton was hands down one of the most transformative experiences of my life.

I was very impressed by the Effective Leadership module which is particularly useful for students who come from different nations and cultures. It combines practical and technical information with soft skills to develop your leadership ability.

..right after graduation I got hired at Johnson Controls in the USA for a Procurement role. I can easily say that my masters degree was a key enabler for this opportunity.

Having been taught by a team of academics who are involved in cutting edge research meant we were able to tap into their knowledge and expertise. Coming here has introduced me not only to a new way of thinking, but also career paths I didn’t know existed.

Studying for an MBA is a real challenge but the staff at the University of Southampton Business School were very supportive and helped to create a real community atmosphere. There was a mix of students on the programme from a variety of cultures.

I would absolutely recommend the University of Southampton to American Students. The possibilities for degree types are endless and the University is very well known in many specialist areas. The city has everything you need and more and we are only an hour away from London which is one of my favourite cities in the world.

I think for the Business School students, it is a good university to enhance the professional knowledge, because we have different optional courses and modules to choose from.

Many doctors are already studying for MBAs so I feel I'll have a head start in my career. Thanks to my management degree, I believe I now have a diverse understanding of people, business and management which I can apply to my future medical practice.

Joining one of the world's leading management consultancies has enabled me to experience and interact with key decision makers across industry and government. This has been invaluable experience.

My time at University wouldn’t have been the same without the amazing people I met along the way, both fellow students and staff. The lectures and their passion for the subjects they teach inspired and motivated me throughout my years at Southampton.

The infrastructure of the university is ideal. We also feel like we always have someone to talk to if we struggle, may it be a professor, a tutor or even an advisor. Southampton has a diverse campus where I honestly feel like I don’t stand out, in a good way, I am free to just be who I am. I never thought I would be able to leave home for a long period of time and not only survive but actually enjoy every single minute of it.

My time during my programme at Southampton helped me to understand how to better position myself at the intersection of technology, business and management. I gained significant subject knowledge expertise, as well as a better understanding of how to transfer and relate skills set in corporate environments.

The MBA was pivotal in my management career,” he says. “I came from a science background but always enjoyed working with people. Studying for an MBA added new dimensions to my career. I found learning about economics, HR management and contract law particularly rewarding.

Having studied Management at postgraduate level, I feel much more confident working at Estee Lauder as I had learned so many things which in practice turned out to be exactly as the theory presented to us by our teachers.

I’d recommend the Southampton MBA to anyone who wants to push boundaries, meet interesting people and come out of the experience more well-rounded and able to think more deeply.

I successfully secured a placement year with Norwegian Cruise Lines with massive help from the Placements Office. I worked as a Business Operation (Planning and Analysis) Intern. Being exposed to the business operation of an international cruise company was an incredible and insightful experience.

My postgraduate study has undoubtedly been worth the cost. I don’t think I would have my current job without my MSc from Southampton, and I certainly wouldn’t know nearly as much about finance as I now do – although, I realise, I have barely scratched the surface.

My University of Southampton experience has been amazing and full of various emotions. It has become a new chapter of my life and I am happy I made Southampton my prime choice of universities in UK.

With all the available reputable universities in UK, the University of Southampton was the perfect fit for everything I was searching for. The University of Southampton gave me much more than a Masters degree printed on a piece of paper but rather a well rounded experience of what it takes to become a better version of myself.

Taking the course was one of the best decisions I’ve made. I enjoyed everything about it: the lecturers, the coursework and my classmates, some of whom have become friends for a lifetime. It gave me all the theoretical knowledge I needed to satisfy my interest, gave me a sound background, and got me excited about the future.

For students deciding whether or not to study overseas, I strongly urge you to take that leap of faith. The British learning environment is truly different from ours, it challenges your opinions and makes you think out of the box...because University is about finding the answers yourself.

What I learnt in the Business School was not limited to the financial sheets or return on investment, but a logical mind set with can-do spirits. The Business School gave me a great exposure to the real business world, such as career talks and networking events.
