MSc in Management (Logistics and Supply Chain Management)

Founder/CEO Gilbert Agri-Food UG
Remshalden Germany

“The MSc in Management (Supply Chain and Logistics Management) programme was a great academic experience. I really enjoyed the high quality of lecturing and the regular company visits and guest lectures by representatives from Greek and International corporations - who often happened to be graduates of the International Faculty and gave us valuable insight into how what we learned in the programme actually applies in the industry. Enhanced knowledge of Supply Management and Procurement are the key skills I gained and I now utilize as a entrepreneur. Also I found the particularities of logistics in the South Eastern European region very important and useful. To study in such a professional environment in the centre of a city that never sleeps is a opportunity not to be missed.”

“When I reflect on the time I spent at the International Faculty CITY College, during my master studies attending the MSc in Management (Logistics and Supply Chain Management), all I can say is that that year was a turning point in my life. And this is because during my studies I built significantly my academic and practical knowledge. After completing the programme not only did I get the courage to start my own business, but also I gained the skills and abilities to reflect and deal with any unexpected situation. Today, one year after my graduation, I have a healthy business that provides the latest trends of porcelain and ceramic tiles from different countries around the world (Italy, Spain and India), all this is a result of my time at the International Faculty, as I was taught that with good supply chain and logistics planning the world can become so small.”

“As student at the International Faculty CITY College, I was encouraged to become a global citizen with independent way of thinking that enabled me to build a strong foundation for a successful career. The University of Sheffield International Faculty is a thriving intellectual community of students and staff offering a top line academic experience and a supportive environment to students. I'm grateful to be part of the International Faculty CITY College, not only because of the academic knowledge I gained, but also because of the mentoring and the guidance I received for my career path from some great minds, my professors. Despite the challenging parts of a master programme, the MSc in Management (Logistics and Supply Chain Management) gave me the opportunity to extend my knowledge in Supply Chain and to expose myself to professional cycles due to my dissertation, which was published in less than a year after my graduation. In other words, we could say that the International Faculty CITY College is a career "boarding pass".”

MA in Counselling Psychology with a Practicum

“Thessaloniki is much larger than the city I completed my Bachelors in back in the UK. It is an exciting city with a great community feeling and is an excellent place to be a student. There are many apartments in the city for students and staff at CITY College are always ready to help international students find a place to live. My apartment was right in the centre, a short walk from the sea front and the Ladadika District, where there are tavernas with wonderful, reasonably priced Greek food. Thessaloniki has an amazing night life and is a great place for both shopping and sight seeing. The Student Union of CITY College plan many events for the students, I took part in the Alexander the Great 5k Marathon with some friends. This is something I used to do back in the UK so was glad to have the opportunity to continue in Greece. During the weekends and holidays I travelled to many places in Greece outside of Thessaloniki.” Read more...
