Career Path: PhD at Northumbria University

"MDI gave me the opportunity to collaborate on projects set by industry leaders, which provided me with the opportunity to develop on a personal and professional level in an environment that is both innovative and supportive. I particularly enjoyed the experience that I gained from working with students from the disciplines of design and technology, which allowed me to improve upon my previous knowledge of business, whilst appreciating where I fit in terms of solving wider innovation challenges."

"After graduating from MDI, I began studying towards a PhD in design. The skills that I acquired through the course were instrumental in reaching this position, with the degree embedding strong research principles and providing me with the foundations to pursue a career in research."
