Why did you choose to study at BU?

Studying a Master’s degree was the priority for me after I graduated from university. I studied business administration for my undergraduate degree, so I wanted to choose a specialism. Marketing management was the first option for my career development. BU was the perfect fit for me, both for the academic lecturers and the city I wanted to live and study in.

What did you gain from your student experience?

During my studies at BU, I had both academic and practical experiences in a multinational environment. I always say that the first five years after graduation from university is an essential milestone for career development. It was a good start for my career by building all this expertise in marketing theory, and exploring case studies in different areas such as marketing communication, marketing in a cross-cultural environment, e-commerce and strategic marketing planning.

What advice do you have for other international students coming to study at BU?
