(MSc Consumer Analytics and Marketing Strategy 2020), Marketing and Customer Success Manager at White Label Loyalty.
“My experience with dissertation projects exceeded all my expectations. Not only because it ended in a job offer but also because of the incredible learning and development experience it presented itself to be. I worked really close with White Label Loyalty throughout summer.
“My project was to develop a digital marketing plan for them, focusing on content and paid advertising. Whilst doing all my research and creating the strategy, I was asked by the team to apply my tactics directly into action. It was such an incredible opportunity to apply all my theoretical knowledge of PPC and other digital marketing learnt at University.
“It was certainly challenging as I was dealing with a real budget and had little experience but that’s what taught me the most! As mentioned, I was lucky enough to be offered a job as a marketing manager at White Label Loyalty at the end of my successful summer project. I will never cease to be grateful for this opportunity that started with LUBS offering an applied dissertation option.
“If I should have one advice to give to students thinking about doing a project, I’d say give it a shot; you might be positively surprised about the outcomes of your decision.”
