How did your degree programme help you develop the skills required for your role?
"My degree has taught me main theories which are required in a marketing role. Secondly, group projects have helped me develop communication skills and flexibility. Lastly, my bachelor experience has taught me how to be precise, organised and how to prioritise workload. All of which I believe are the main ingredients of a successful employee."

What advice would you give to future students looking to work in Marketing?
"I would suggest you take a placement year to gain some marketing experience during your degree, to understand more about the subject and apply this to the theories studied at university. In addition, work experience helps you understand if marketing is really for you and helps you discover which aspect of the sector you would like to work in."
