Job: Market Research Consultant, The Nielsen Company  

I would not have got the job I have today without my postgraduate degree from Swansea.

Staff from the Business School gave me great support during my studies, and the skills I gained were a key factor in getting a graduate job.

After graduating I accepted a job as a market research consultant at The Nielsen Company - one of the world's leading market research companies.

Every day I get the opportunity to work with many of the world’s biggest brands which makes my job exciting and interesting.”
