Case study

MSc Business and Management student — Mohamed Benhmid

Mohamed is studying MSc Business and Management at Plymouth University

Why did you choose this institution and course?

I've always been good at making decisions. Even if I'm put in a difficult situation, I'm capable of critically thinking it through to come up with a logical solution. I recognised that such skills would be very useful in business, consulting and management, and therefore pursued postgraduate study in this field.

The University of Plymouth is known for its high-quality education, and I believed that it would offer me the finest opportunity to develop my skills in business and management. Creativity and innovation can be seen across the university's teaching and research. It has strong connections with the business world, and is also one of the few universities in the world to have received the Social Enterprise Mark.

What does the programme involve?

Students can choose to focus on international business, finance, marketing, or operations and global supply chains.

Regardless of your selection, the university delivers an excellent education, a supportive learning environment and state-of-the-art resources. Its postgraduate programmes give you all of the tools that are needed for business success, such as key management, strategy and analytical skills.

What are your plans for after graduation?

I want to land a managerial job at a multinational company.

Plymouth University graduates have secured jobs with organisations such as DHL, Deloitte and EY, entering various fields of business. These include marketing, project management, financial management, strategic management, human resources and talent management, and operations and global supply chain management.

What advice would you give to those considering postgraduate study?

While many graduates think that their undergraduate degree is enough to get a graduate job, a Masters degree really sets you apart. It doesn't just place you in a higher salary group - it also develops your prospects and opens up a greater number of opportunities.

Plymouth University will help you a long way in life, and I wholeheartedly believe that the education it has provided has prepared me for my future career.
