BSc (Hons) International Management & Modern Languages (alumnus)

Dan O\'GradyI felt the main strength of the programme was the excellent placement links it had with well-respected international companies. This was reflected in the impressive list of companies that students graduating from IMML had gone on to work for. As well as developing my business knowledge and French language skills, the IMML degree also taught me how to improve my time management skills and work under pressure; these skills have served me well in my job.

During my year abroad I worked for Danone, Paris in the Corporate Communication department. I thoroughly enjoyed the year abroad as it gave me the opportunity to use the skills and knowledge that I’d acquired through my degree. In addition Paris is a brilliant place to live! It was really easy to settle in as many of my classmates were also in the city but I made a conscious effort to meet new people and speak French socially. After graduating I secured a job at Danone Dairies UK- my placement certainly helped me to get my current role.
