Julian Fieres, from Germany, is a 25-year-old International Postgraduate Management Trainee with ZF Friedrichshafen AG. We asked him a few questions about studying a postgraduate business program at the University of Glasgow.
Why did you choose your course?
I chose my course out of interest for the complex interplay between management methodology, psychological aspects of leading & motivating employees and the organizational environment & strategy.
What was the best thing about your course?
I really enjoyed the topical and highly practical debates in class which are encouraged by lecturers with relevant business backgrounds as well as the mix of students from all over the globe who shared their insights from previous jobs and studies.
Why did you choose the University of Glasgow?
I chose the University of Glasgow because it blends tradition with innovation in a stunning and inviting setting and because of the recent performance of the Adam Smith Business School in academic rankings.
Do you have any advice for students considering studying at Glasgow?
If you are from a Non-UK country, prepare yourself for a rather practical and self-directed approach to learning and make sure you take in all aspects of the truly unique and beautiful Scottish culture. Also don’t forget to get involved with one of the many student clubs at University of Glasgow to make new friends and gain some practical insights!
