University experience

Francesca had a good feeling when she walked around our campus. She visited us three times, just to make sure we were the right choice for her. We certainly were, as Francesca met her husband at Herts, and after twelve years together they married in 2017. She tells us that some of the friends she met at university, she couldn’t live without.

Francesca enjoyed her studies and learnt a lot about working with different types of people. Having the opportunity to learn business, marketing and French within one degree allowed her to fully understand the career she would soon enter. The curriculum interested her, and she welcomed the relevancy of the modules, such as global marketing and corporate social responsibility. Her placement year gave her valuable experience which helped Francesca find employment when she graduated.

Career progression

Francesca has had a rich marketing career. Highlights include working as a marketing manager for Hamleys and her current role as a Europe marketing manager. Francesca says that the key to her successes have been believing in herself and continuously learning. In the future, Francesca would like to set up her own marketing and events company and hopes to offer internships to students at the University of Hertfordshire.

My stand-out moment was definitely meeting my now husband. After nearly twelve years together we finally wed 19th May 2017.
