"(After graduating) I went straight to work for a social media startup in Silicon Valley, California, which was then purchased by Google. Understanding the jargon of the core principles of marketing helped me hit the ground running and standout from peers… It's more than semantics though - some of the constructs we used to analyse businesses marketing moves have been useful in helping determine market segmentation, competitive advantages, etc. in my real job."

"It was extremely challenging at times, but this is how you develop and once you’ve mastered the challenge, it gives you confidence for the next, even bigger challenge. Every tutor at LUBS was highly capable and knowledgeable, which gives you the confidence to change your own view point."
