What students think about Cranfield School of Management

    Alejandro Palacios Strooman (2019 Corporate Sustainability MSc)

    Testimonial from Alejandro Palacios Strooman (2019 Corporate Sustainability MSc), student at Cranfield School of Management

    "During the Management and Corporate Sustainability MSc, we attended a lot of talks with people who are involved with sustainability, people that had a lot of experience, people that were in senior roles in private companies and organisations, people that were pioneers of pushing sustainability into corporate organisations. To hear those people talk about their experiences of sustainability transformation that is required in society was really inspiring."

    Cristina Gavilan (2019 Strategic Marketing MSc)

    Testimonial from Cristina Gavilan (2019 Strategic Marketing MSc), student at Cranfield School of Management

    "Two months after completing the Strategic Marketing MSc, I was offered a Marketing Executive role in a company that manufactures British vitamin supplements. And now, after seven months in the company, I have been promoted to a Marketing Manager. I had to design a three-year Marketing Strategy for the brand; this is the reason why the Marketing Consultancy Project as well as the Marketing Communication modules were really useful and helped me to define the best option for the brand."

    Jakkrit Kingchum - Investment Management MSc (2019)

    Testimonial from Jakkrit Kingchum - Investment Management MSc (2019), student at Cranfield School of Management

    “At the moment I am working as an Investment Analyst, Cranfield has given me the solid knowledge and background to work in this role. In the third term on the Investment Management MSc, we are required to do valuations so I had to use Bloomberg, Thomson Reuters and Datastream so it was really useful for me because I have to use it almost every day.”
