Why did you choose to do a Masters at Brighton?
“I had been working as a Human Resource Management officer in the Ministry of Finance in Thailand. I won a scholarship to do a Masters degree. I searched a lot of universities but chose Brighton’s course because it offered a public services management course in the business school and not in public administration. I was attracted by the fact that Brighton’s course applied to the practice of all of the management functions.”
How did the course help your career?
“The course opened my mind so I did not just see experience from a Thai perspective. It helped me to see things from the perspectives of different places in the world. I learned from the opinions and points of view of my classmates of other nationalities on the course.”
What did you find most useful from the course?
“The course also increased my knowledge of how public services are managed in England and in other parts of Europe. In my previous studies I was only assessed by tests. But on Brighton’s MSc Management I learned a lot from the varied and different assessments. I learned by doing research, and from the case study examples in the course.”
“My learning was not limited to the classroom. I also learned from the course experiences visiting companies and talking to practicing managers. The tutor-led study visits to companies were particularly useful experiences.”
