Masters sets graduate on the road to business success
A Master’s degree in business management from the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) has helped a Sale man find his flair for business.
Having already obtained an undergraduate English language degree, Nick Marron returned to the University to study for a postgraduate qualification, which he hoped would help him change career path and move into business.
It was a move that paid off and Nick is now three months into a business development role at Preston-based Envirosystems.
He said: “I wanted to improve my job prospects, learn more about business and ultimately obtain a qualification that would allow me to move into role within world of business.
“The business management programme appealed to me as it was a wide-ranging course, covering a range of business disciplines, allowing you to find your niche. In my case that was business finance and strategy.”
"The memories of the stressful times will stay with me; however it’s certainly worth it in the end. The reward and esteem that comes with a postgraduate qualification lasts forever."
The 25-year-old former Sale Grammar School student, who now lives in Preston, found postgraduate study stretching, but believes he wouldn’t be where he is today without it.
“There were lots of late nights and it was certainly hard work. The memories of the stressful times will stay with me; however it’s certainly worth it in the end. The reward and esteem that comes with a postgraduate qualification lasts forever.
“I would also like to thank the fantastic staff at UCLan. The course team were so helpful. Their doors were always open and they were so good at guiding you through your studies and providing you with one-to-one support,” added Nick.
Watched on by family and friends, including his girlfriend Cass, Nick was one of 1,500 graduates who donned the cap and gown to receive their awards at Preston’s Guild Hall.
