MSc Management 

Why did you choose to study this programme?

It covers a wide range of disciplines from financial information management to delivering performance, from focusing on the numbers in the financial world to leadership in the workplace. This course provides the sufficient hard skills as well as soft skills to ensure the we are confident to deal with real world challenges in the future. 

What have you enjoyed most about the programme?

This programme provides a wide range of knowledge in a short space of time. It's at a sweet spot where the course design is challenging enough, but not to a level that overwhelmed me. 

What has been the best part of your time at the Adam Smith Business School?

There are lots of activities available outside of the curriculum, such as the Graduate Award. This award focuses on valuable skills and experience ranging from academic writing to employability skills. 

Would you recommend it to prospective students?

Yes, I would. The reason is very simple, I haven't regretted a second I have spent here in Glasgow. Of course it is not all fun, there are times where I have pulled an all-nighter for an exam, or there has been conflict during group work. These are all lessons we have to learn and experience somewhere in our lives and this course has prepared me for this.

I appreciate the combination of the management aspect along with tourism as both are vital topics to emerge into the working world. I especially enjoyed the varying tourism courses offered as I feel I received an enriching education. 

What has been the best part of your time at the Adam Smith Business School?

I have enjoyed getting to know my classmates and the varying events I have been able to attend through the business school. It has been a great variation of social/fun as well as interesting and educational events.

What has been the best part of your time at the Adam Smith Business School?

I particularly enjoyed taking part in the Graduate Award. This is a great way to get to know the university, new people and learn new things.
