More about Annie
“I chose Nottingham Business School because the course gave me the opportunity to take a year out in industry, as well as the chance to gain extra qualifications alongside my degree. The best aspect of studying in NBS was the great location - Nottingham city is great if you are looking for a fun and inexpensive nightlife.
The modules were so relevant to the modern and ever-changing business environment. The majority of tutors who taught me were very supportive, especially during my final year when they gave up their free time to offer 1-2-1 sessions when needed.
I completed a placement year during my course. As the PR and Marketing Intern at Savse, the UK’s fastest growing smoothie company, I assisted the team with various activities, campaigns and projects with a view to improve brand awareness and perception. This placement year was a solid foundation for my future career in marketing, learning which areas of the industry I did and didn’t want to go into.
I was involved in the Thinkubator Challenge whilst in my final year and attended multiple CPD and PDP events throughout my time at university.
NBS gave me the encouragement to find a placement year by myself, complete additional qualifications such as CIM-CAM and Google Partners, and to achieve my target of a First-Class Honours degree. I believe my time at NTU has provided me with the knowledge, experience and qualifications needed to gain a great job. I recently became an Events Marketing & Campaign Assistant at Hearst UK. Based in London, Hearst publishes numerous magazines including Cosmopolitan, ELLE, Women’s Health, Esquire, Red, Harper’s Bazaar and more.
My advice is to take any opportunity that NBS offers you as it will give your CV valuable advantage in an increasingly competitive job market.”
