COURSE:

MA Intercultural Communication and International Business, Class of 2015

I chose to study at the University of Surrey due to the interdisciplinary nature of the course and the international environment, as well as how close it is to London. The best things about my course were the people in my class and learning about how to teach other people.

At Surrey I learned a lot about how international businesses work, which was very useful for my future career. I now work as a HR manager at Automobili Pininfarina, a new start-up business with a very international background. It’s an Indian corporation with an Italian design history and a Munich-based office. I love working here because it’s a highly dynamic environment. I get to work with great people and I learn a lot.

Through my course I became more open minded. My advice to future students would be to be more open minded themselves.
