Ross’s master’s degree gave him a whole armoury of transferable skills - many of which he is currently using as President of University College Birmingham’s Guild of Students.
With aspirations to go into the education sector, his MA taught him how to write reports, conduct audits, navigate public speaking, deliver presentations and instigate negotiations, all key elements of his paid role representing more than 7,000 students at the University.
Within his role, he has worked on campaigning for student rights, feedback on important issues and acted as the main point of contact between the University and its students.
Ross said his MA made him aim as high as possible.
“My goal is to continue to grow and develop and take every opportunity possible and University College Birmingham helped me achieve this mindset,” he said.
“My MA helped me flourish as a person, giving me the confidence to aim high in my ambitions.
“Highlights included a trip to Dubai with great exposure to international commerce and the opportunity to work on live business cases during my studies, which helped prepare me for work.
“I feel the course provided me with a step up and transferable skills that I can use in employment.”
