Why study Global Media and Management at Keele University?
"I chose to do this MA because the media study allowed me to explore my desire to move into advertising and look into the nuances of that industry, and the management study provided an opportunity to explore the wider context of international business and business leadership. The media element has provided me with a greater skillset on industry standard software, as well as more insight into things like creating and planning an ad campaign. Whereas the management side has provided a well-structured insight into being involved with, and leading, a company."
