Not only has my experience at the school given me the knowledge as a base for my career, but it has sparked a confidence in me that I never thought I had. I now know I have what it takes to be a successful marketeer and have already started climbing my professional ladder. Bangor Business School has helped me build confidence and believe in myself and allowed me to find my passion which is now my career.
My MBA Environmental Management gave me leverage to obtain my current role with HALO and it also provided me with some new friends, including University staff who I will keep in touch with going forward. My online communication skills significantly improved due to the nature of the online course delivery and socialising.
Bangor is just a fantastic place to be. The scenery is amazing, and the University itself looks incredible. I’d heard great things about the student experience in Bangor, so I knew it would be a place I would enjoy. There were some really great lecturers that genuinely cared about students success. It’s more than just a job to them. And a lot of them stay in touch after as well!
