CASE STUDY: Degrees working for students: Stuart Glover

“Use University as a stepping stone into your career…”

Stuart Glover created a great career opportunity when he graduated from the University of Wolverhampton with a First Class Honours Degree in Business and Marketing Management.

After graduating in September 2017, Stuart applied for a graduate role with local creative agency, 8848.  He secured a position as a Junior Account Executive and has since been promoted to Senior Account Executive, working with clients on a range of Marketing, PR and creative projects.

Stuart, 22, from Wolverhampton studied at the University of Wolverhampton Business School at City Campus in Wolverhampton.

“I’m so pleased that my career has taken off so quickly and that, within less than a year, I’ve been promoted twice.  My degree was so relevant to the work I’m doing now and, without a doubt, it’s worked for me and was a great stepping stone into my career.

“When I was at the University there were plenty of opportunities, the lecturers were all very supportive and the majority of modules on the course were preparing us for the real world.

“The investment in the University is not only great for the City but for all of the students that go there.  What I liked about the University compared with other ones in the region was that it was so modern, so new and its facilities are state-of-the-art.”
