Hear from our students
I was influenced by the professional academic environment in Stirling Management School when I made my choice to study this course here. As an international student, I have been enriched by studying in a multi-cultural environment as well as improving my academic knowledge. I particularly enjoyed the Flying Start activities at the beginning of the course and the Personal and Professional Development module has really helped me to build my confidence and improve teamwork skills.Zhuqing Shen, postgraduate student, Business & Management
