Niyada Wongprompreeda, L’Oreal

Senior Product Manager, L’Oreal Thailand

Niyada chose to study MSc Marketing at Exeter due to the university’s global reputation and the generous scholarships on offer.

“Before studying at Exeter, I was a Media Planner at Maxus, a GroupM company. I felt like I wanted to specialise more in the area that I was interested in – Marketing. I chose to study at the University of Exeter as it is one of the leading universities in the UK for Marketing. Also, I was lucky enough to be awarded a scholarship from the university.

Since leaving the Business School, I have worked as an Online Marketing Manager at ZALORA Thailand, a Product Manager and more recently as a Senior Product Manager for L’Oreal (Thailand). This was within the Maybelline New York and YSL Beauté brands.

My Masters degree has not just taught me academically, but also given me vital life skills during my time studying. Masters degrees can be overwhelming if you don’t plan your studies well and I have learnt to juggle my studies with socialising. During the course, I’ve made friends who I still am in contact with. It is indeed a lifetime experience!

I would definitely recommend a Masters at Exeter to anyone thinking about studying here. There is such a large range of optional modules allowing you to gain knowledge and skills to suit your individual interests. I felt well supported throughout my programme and thoroughly enjoyed my time here.

For any students who wish to pursue a Masters at Exeter, I would recommend working for a few years after doing a Bachelors degree. That way you will know what you like and what you want to do for a living in the long run. Without having worked for a while, it will be hard to understand how theory is put into practice in reality.

My advice on becoming more employable would be to remember that interviews are very important. They are the first impression you create with your prospective employer. Giving a logical and straight to the point answer is important as it shows your rational and strategic thinking. Nonetheless, the most important thing is to be yourself, and remember that the best dress you can wear to your interview is your personality.”
