What two of our past students have to say about studying at Brunel
Mustafa Amin Syed
MSc in Business Systems Integration (using SAP Technology)
Mustafa studied for an MSc in Business Systems Integration (using SAP Technology) and is now working as a SAP Tax Consultant at Accenture.
“My career aspiration to work as an SAP consultant, coupled with my interest to further my academic studies drove me to do this course.
Brunel’s close proximity to London and easy transport links helped me to decide this was the right place to study. The university itself is very large and it is very rare to find a university in London with such a large campus on one site.
I found the course content and teaching approach very informative and highly enjoyable. The course was well structured and the department was very helpful. I especially enjoyed the group project modules, which involved working in teams.
I definitely believe studying for an MSc at Brunel has helped me get to where I am today. Since graduating in 2009, I joined Accenture straight away and have been working here for over two years. I have primarily beeninvolved in global SAP projects within the energy sector. This has involved a lot of travel, allowing me to visit places within the UK as well as abroad (The United States, Dubai, and Qatar).”
MSc in Information Systems Management
Akbar studied for an MSc in Information Systems Management and is currently working as Release Manager for Hewlett Packard.
‘‘ I own the end to end Software Release Process using Agile Development/Testing methodology. I plan, co-ordinate and lead the release by pulling together various streams and stakeholders to deploy new functionality to customers. My current client is Vodafone UK who I have supported for three years since I finished my MSc degree.
I always wanted to go to Brunel for my undergraduate degree, but just missed out on a place. I felt having an MSc from Brunel would differentiate me from many of the other graduates applying for a small number of graduate programmes.
The MSc in Information Systems Management has given me a greater understanding of IT and management fields which made me an attractive candidate to employers. I gained transferable skills in presentation, team working and communication. I also developed skills in critical thinking which enables me to add value in thought leadership and innovation.
I found the course to be varied and each module had specific objectives which gave us a broad understanding of Information Systems, people, process and technology. I really enjoyed the workshops, especially with SAP, where we got to put into practice what we were exposed to using SAP and Business Warehouse.
My greatest achievement was to tackle the dissertation and take part in the SAP TERP10 certification course at the same time via Brunel. I managed to do something that was daunting and get training on SAP which is a professional qualification. To this day I still get emails from recruiters who desperately need staff with experience using SAP.
It was brilliant to be able to work with students from nearly every continent. One of the highlights of my time was meeting so many people of different cultures with mutual interests.
I would recommend Brunel and have done so on multiple occasions because it was a culture where we could develop our knowledge and experience. Every opinion was valid and people invested time in each other to develop mutual understanding. The School has very high standards and Brunel is great for employment opportunities.’’
