guyWhy did you choose to study the International Marketing programme?

Instead of choosing a city or a university name, I searched for high quality programmes. The programme at Mälardalen University was perfectly tailored for marketers’ needs, nothing more or nothing less, like an exact match. I also had a chance to write my dissertation while taking my courses.

What did you learn, in general, at the International Marketing programme?

A successful marketer has to live a colourful life to better determine the needs of a segment group. I had a colourful learning experience at Mälardalen University and the International Marketing programme gave me a sense of being an international marketer and understanding the needs of different consumer groups.

What was best about studying at Mälardalen University?

Campus was not isolated from the city, which made my life so much easier. Also, the Student Union worked perfectly. I am sure every single student in the programme enjoyed the Student Union’s events and met lots of friends from other countries.

What is your current position?

I work as marketing manager at Google headquarter in California, US. Currently I am working for a brand-new product called Google Offers. The core responsibility is to position the product for the market, decide and execute go-to-market marketing strategy.
