My time studying Business Management (Marketing) at UEL allowed me to gain both theoretical and practical knowledge that has been extremely beneficial within the workplace. The network the course enables you to build is invaluable in the current employment market. The marketing industry is growing rapidly and UEL has prepared me to enter this industry confidently and successfully.Helena Crabtree , BA Business Management (Marketing)
