Helena Feibert, Senior IT Consultant, Pandora, Denmark

Testimonial from Helena Feibert, Senior IT Consultant, Pandora, Denmark, student at University of Birmingham Online

"The online MSc in International Business felt more suited to my current career level. It will solidify my academic foundation and help to take me through the next stages of my career.

I did an extensive amount of research before choosing where to send applications. I searched for a university with high standards, a schedule that accommodated my own, a course that was within my budget and a curriculum that would meet my expectations. So far I have not been disappointed."

I find this enriching to online sessions, discussions and networking. I did an extensive amount of research before choosing where to send my applications.

"With an online MSc in International Business my options are not limited as this course allows anyone who studies it to work in career fields such as; Marketing, Import and Export, Finance, Entrepreneurship and Logistics just to name a few.


The University of Birmingham applies a great ‘hands-on’ approach to teaching online - whether through online sessions, via email or even Skype. There are also great networking opportunities which come from studying online - the most effective I believe is through the various group projects. I have been extremely pleased with the University of Birmingham and their course offerings."
