I was a sales manager for a company in China before I came to study in Lancaster. I opted to further my education in order to aid my career progression, and chose Lancaster because of its good reputation, the wide range of modules on the MSc in Management, and its picturesque location.

The variety of modules on the programme helped me build up a solid knowledge base while the case studies and group projects added a practical dimension. I enjoyed getting to know others on my course as they came from a range of cultures and backgrounds and were very interesting.

After graduating from Lancaster I was selected for the post-Masters exchange programme at IESEG Management School in Lille, France. This scheme enables LUMS Masters graduates to spend another semester studying at one of the School's partner institutions. It was a good opportunity for me to experience a different teaching style and I really enjoyed the programme.
