Hello, my name is Michelle Meese and I am currently doing my Master’s degree in International Business & Management at Fontys University of Applied Sciences in cooperation with the University of Plymouth.
I chose this study programme because I like the idea of a one-year full-time Master including a stay abroad in Plymouth, Great Britain. Furthermore, I was interested in extending my business and management qualifications in order to perfectly qualify for a management position at/on a strategic level. Moreover, I gained a comprehensive insight into different modules like ‘Marketing and Strategy, Leadership and Management, Finance and Economics as well as Operations and Knowledge Management’. Hereby, I really appreciated the balance between oral and written exams because this is the best way to prepare students for the business world.
Furthermore, the atmosphere among students was very friendly, pleasant and open. If a student had e.g. a problem with a module, another student directly helped out.
The relationship with lecturers was very pleasant and friendly as well, whereby students got well supported at any time. Finally, it can be said that this study programme definitely prepares myself for my future job because it is a good combination of maintaining business and social competences.
