Nils Steuber

I’d already studied at Newcastle Business School during an undergraduate term abroad – attracted by the state-of-the-art facilities and IT infrastructure. So I knew Northumbria University well.

The MBA programme has benefited me by teaching content from a managerial, rather than purely theoretical, perspective. It’s something I’m confident will support my future career in general management. Staff support has been tremendous, from the application process right through my studies. Both academic and administrative staff are always available.

Being a postgraduate here is a very positive experience and the programme has fully lived up to expectations. Newcastle is a great city for students – there are around 50,000 here – and it’s fairly cheap compared to other cities. There are also a lot of things to do outside the University, including great opportunities for travelling and exploring other areas in the UK.

When it comes to jobs, I’ve already been offered a position as a buyer with one of the biggest food retailers in Germany. It’s an opportunity that came up when I visited a career fair in Germany during semester break – but I’ve not really started applying seriously as yet.

My advice for prospective MBA students? Just go for it!
