“International Marketing Manager?!”…this could be something many people think when reading this Title.

A general believe is that in a highly globalised world people become all the same around the globe. This is mainly due to the influence of the internet and social networks, where people across the world connect, and share their interests.

However, even though we are increasingly similar, we have differences. These differences among consumers are immensely underestimated by people doing business in international markets.

The environment of consumers contributes significantly to their beliefs, interests, and behaviour. The international markets might have differences in political, economic, socio-cultural, and technological aspects. An analysis of these factors helps marketers to apply an appropriate International Marketing strategy. Marketing activities such as pricing, advertising, or distribution change within cultures due to different perceptions.

I am Namitha Muthukrishnan, a Luxury Hospitality professional and I am currently an MBA student at the University of Salford’s Business School.

Let me begin by saying that I am extremely impressed with women at the University of Salford and here is why. It is only my first week at Salford Business School and the first thing that I noticed during the process of admissions is that our Dean – Professor Amanda Broderick is a woman.

Once classes began I found out that the Associate Dean (Academic) and the new director of the Salford MBA program are also women.

Even the Salford Business School’s building is named after a woman!

The building is named after Lady Hale who is the first Lady Law Lord in the UK. All impressive titles held by leaders in their field.

Paulo Coelho, the author of  “The winner stands alone” said that

“One day, you will wake up and there won’t be any more time to do the things you’ve always wanted. DO IT NOW.”

It is the saying that encourages me to make my dream come true study abroad in the UK. Beside that, since I studied in Foreign trade university in my country Vietnam, I do know that I want to become a Marketing Manager.

As a results of a difficult working and studying period, I chose to study MSc Marketing at Salford Business School as an excellent preparation to my career in the future.

The top reasons why I decided to return to the University of Salford Business School for my postgraduate studies

My greatest experience at University of Salford was my time spent within the Salford Business School.

An MSc – or Masters – is something I was considering doing for some time. I completed my BSc in Professional Broadcast Techniques and afterwards, in all honesty, felt somewhat lost. Something I feel many graduates may be able to relate to.

However, during my BSc I undertook a module in IPR (Intellectual Property Rights), which was taught within Salford Business School. It became clear to me on reflection of my time spent as a University of Salford undergraduate, where my strengths and weaknesses lie.

For example, I was far more interested in my research for IPR than I was in producing my honours video project. This honesty and clarification was a milestone for myself. Working in a call centre for a soul destroying three months after graduating, I definitely knew that a big change of direction was needed!

Is Salford Business School the ideal place to study Business? Let’s look at the Salford MBA!

Hello leaders of the future! I am Sivashankar from India, currently studying on the Salford MBA course at Salford Business School, University of Salford. In this Salford MBA review I have quite a lot to share with you – if you are aspiring to do one of the most prestigious post-graduate courses in business and management – Master of Business Administration (MBA).

An MBA is certainly not for the faint-hearted – you must have a minimum of three years full-time post study work experience with evidence of managerial responsibility. This is in addition to a good honours degree or equivalent in a business related subject. Once you managed these requirements you have to choose your pathways. For example, the Salford MBA offers you the option to specialise in Digital Business, Sports Business or just go for a generic MBA.

As a student who is mid-way through my MBA course, I took some time off to reflect on why I chose Salford Business School instead of other very strong options. This is my Salford MBA review of my experience so far.

Here are some of the reasons that led me choose this particular business school and you can decide whether I was right or wrong.
