Christiaan Heemskerk, who graduated from LSBF in 2011 with a MSc in Marketing, used his knowledge of the most up-to-date theories in Digital Marketing to secure his current position as Business Acquisition Manager at Google European Headquarters in Dublin, Ireland. Studying at LSBF allowed Christiaan to study at one of the few universities in the UK that offers cutting-edge modules alongside a Masters degree. The course also ensured a large amount of practical implementation of course knowledge. The forward-looking nature of LSBF's Marketing MSc gave him the upper hand he needed to outdo his competitors in the job market and step into his new role. “At Google, I am applying all the theories I have learned during my Internet and Digital Marketing Communications and Web Analytics classes at LSBF. They have given me a solid understanding of marketing in the digital environment that is proving invaluable.” “Thanks to the knowledge and skills I gained at LSBF, I now have the opportunity to work with extremely talented people. Even though I have only just joined the company, my ideas and opinions are valued and taken into consideration.” What's your advice for new students? Make sure that you enrol in courses and work experience that prove to future employers that you are proactively developing your skills. Have fun, be persistent and network.
