The MSc project I did at Manchester Business School helped me to get my current job, as I was able to apply the module learning to my project. The amount of exposure to industry and skills I developed was important for me and for my career.

Current position: Software Developer, Accenture

I did my BEng in India, and decided to get a postgraduate degree after completing my UG. The University of Manchester was my choice mainly because of the reputation of the School of Computer Science. My degree was very flexible and I really enjoyed it. In terms of my career, the most helpful module was Interactive Systems Design; it helped me to learn a lot about working in a team and the lecturer was outstanding.

Since graduating, I have been working as a software developer in a top MNC. My day to day responsibilities include programming, project management and meeting clients. I enjoy the professionalism involved in the role, as well as the flexible hours.

Manchester as a city is amazing. There are lots of career opportunities and you can get part-time work in your own field during your time at university, and the University of Manchester is held in high esteem by most employers
