MSc Enterprise Management
Having previously been a hotel manager in London, Daniela took a big leap of faith when she decided to pursue a new career in auditing and consulting.
Completing her BA in Hospitality Business Management at UCB, she followed this up with a master’s and now has her sights on working for a high profile, international firm.
The “inspirational” modules on the MSc course were a particular attraction for Daniela.
“I was aware of the University’s areas of expertise and all the advantages for students,” she said. “In addition, this particular course had a really inspiring range of modules – pushing me not only to sign up for the course, but to strive for a distinction grade once I was there. The possibility of a six-month work placement was also really appealing.
“I really enjoyed the ‘hands-on’ element of this master’s. Not only are you given industry knowledge, you are given the opportunity to apply that knowledge to real-life projects. This gave us a chance not only to consult and advise companies of the problems they were experiencing, but also to network with major industry figures.
“I thought changing industries would be a challenge. But, if all the positive responses I have received when applying for jobs is anything to go by, taking this MSc has actually increased my employability in both fields. What excites me most is the chance to use the finance and strategy elements of my degree in the working world.
“Anyone thinking of taking this course is to go for it. It’s a great opportunity to enhance your knowledge and make it big in whatever enterprise you decide to delve into next. Not only do you receive support from your lecturers and colleagues, but you get the chance to build a network of contacts that could come in handy for life.”
