academic research and more on tutor-led learning.

international students staying in Halls of Residence at the
beautiful High Melton campus or in accommodation in the town

"I had a great position - I was a shareholder in the company, I
had a great job and was on good money, but I wasn't getting any
satisfaction from my job - the main thing was that I didn't like
the industry I was in. I came to Doncaster Business School and
signed up for the Full Time BA in Business Studies. I was
fascinated by the area of Marketing and worked on projects and
dissertations in that area whenever possible. It totally changed
things for me.
After my BA, my new company was more engineering orientated,
they had a great specialist product, but they were weak on Sales
and Marketing. In my new role I was given total responsibility for
the Sales and Marketing function. My training in Marketing on the
BA is what made me successful. I applied what I had learned on the
BA, and it was very, very successful for the company. I won new
national accounts with high profile companies such as Selfridges
and with the City of Westminster for example.
I became very well respected in my company and a valued member
of my organisation. My BA gave me an edge I wouldn't have had
It’s an investment, I was self funded, but for me it was well
worth it. I'd recommend the investment in the course - Because
you're worth it!"
