"This challenging, one-year programme has given me the advantage of learning current business subjects in a global setting. Before coming to St Andrews, I worked for five years in an international firm. The knowledge gained through my studies has truly complemented my practical experiences. A real bonus for postgraduates is that most taught classes have two academic staff per course, allowing students to receive high-quality lectures from multiple perspectives."
