Find out why Alexander Zaman prefers Loughborough University to his previous university and what he thinks of our MSc in International Management.
MSc International Management
My name is Alexander Zaman. I do an MSc in International Management and I am from the UK.
I chose to study an MSc at Loughborough because I have always lived in Loughborough since the age of 7 so it was really convenient for me. Also, I saw that Loughborough does really well on the university rankings and I thought it would be a really good opportunity for me.
It’s really different from where I did my undergraduate degree. I find the professors are a lot more helpful here and you can go to them a lot more easily if you have any questions. There is also a lot more group work at Loughborough and it really helps you with your teamwork and leadership skills.
The best thing so far is that I became a programme representative and it really helped with getting to know everyone on the course. I've been able to involve all the international students and build relationships with the teachers and really try to help develop the course for the future.
Last term my favourite module, which I know a lot of the students found, was Marketing Management. I kind of underestimated it before university, but it really allowed you to be more creative and come up with an idea for a rentable electric car for businesses around London and taught you how to best market that. I found it really interesting.
This term I'm studying a module in Enterprise and Employability. That really helps develop your CV and tailor interview questions to a chosen industry, and also in many of the courseworks you can choose industries that you are interested in that could help you with future employment so it’s been really good for that.
I would say definitely apply to come and study at Loughborough; there’s loads of great opportunities for you. It’s also really good fun as well; you’ll make loads of friends and you’ll gain a lot more information about management in general as well as developing yourself in terms of your personality as well.
