MSc International Technology Management (INT) “ Each module was fascinating in its own right and I liked the way the programme brought technical and business subjects together into one unified whole. It taught me that to gain a competitive advantage in today’s international environment, companies need to continually focus on their ability to innovate and apply new technologies across both their products and operating processes. For me, the best thing about the programme was that it focused on the application of ideas on a global business scale. As I discovered after I left Warwick, this means that you can apply what you have learned quickly once you’re in the real world of industry. I would definitely say that my MSc has helped me immensely in my career – not only in terms of gaining my positions at Ansell and Unilever, but being able to quickly make an impact on the business too.
