Case study

Management consultant — Helle Lyngby

Helle Lyngby studied MSc Supply Chain and Logistics Management at the Warwick Manufacturing Group (WMG), The University of Warwick

Why did you choose this institution and course?

I became interested in supply chain and logistics while studying BSc Business Development Engineering at Aarhus University, Denmark, and decided that Masters study would build upon my technical knowledge. I felt that Warwick’s programme would also develop my business, management and leadership skills.

What did the programme involve?

The course offered great variety, with modules in technical and business-focused areas. The programme’s structure was unlike anything that I’d experienced before. Each module began with an intensive week of seminars and workshops, followed by a period of self-study: researching the subject in more depth and completing a post-module assignment. This way of working was really beneficial. It helped me to build a thorough understanding of each module and enabled me to explore each individual subject area in detail and develop a thorough understanding of each topic.

The teachers are excellent too. They have real industry experience and bring their subject to life, showing how the ideas that you’re being taught are applied in actual business situations to develop working solutions. This takes the theory to another level completely.

What did you do after graduating?

I joined Danske Bank as a business process graduate. My job involves developing process improvements to ensure that the bank delivers a fast and effective customer experience. I’m enjoying it immensely and my Masters knowledge has been very useful.

What advice would you give to those considering the programme?

Warwick offers a truly global environment, and my time there was stimulating and fascinating. Working with a diverse mix of individuals, with a range of experiences and from so many different nationalities, helped me to develop a broader perspective, and improved numerous skills such as teamwork and communication.
