Life on campus
Coming to Hult should never just be about getting a masters degree—it's about growing as a person, exploring new cultures, opening yourself up to new opportunites, and experiencing a different way of living.
Hult through Jasmin’s eyes
Meet our cover star, Jasmin Manzano, from the Class of 2020. Having gained experience in a social media role in the US, she decided it was time to skill up with our Masters in International Marketing and begin her Hult journey.
Like most students at Hult, I LOVE traveling. I was really keen to visit Brighton, so I went with my roommate and her Hult cohort. At Christmastime, I visited Paris and Bruges, which were beautiful!
One of the most memorable classes I’ve ever had was with our Dean, Sam. She’s a legend. I was fortunate to be in a Leadership Development lecture with her, and I still remember to this day the power of a growth mindset. She taught us how to reflect on our strengths and look at how much we’d changed and matured since the beginning of our course. She also taught us to recognize our weaknesses, so we can improve on them going forward.
Before Hult I was living and working in San Diego, as a social media manager for an e-commerce jewelry company. Although I learned a lot from that role, I was worried that social media wouldn’t last forever. To have a career with a more long-term, stable future, I thought the best thing would be to learn about all areas of business and classic marketing. Hult was always my number one choice. It offered me everything I was looking for: an international vibe and the opportunity to broaden my career possibilities.
My home campus is London and you can’t even imagine how amazing it is to live and study here until you do it for yourself. I love the fact that I’m constantly exposed to different cultures and it’s so cosmopolitan. There are endless things to do outside the classroom—my favorites are exercising in Regent’s Park and hanging out with my friends at The Piano Works.
Diversity is a really strong theme at Hult, and you feel it and see it all the time. Joining in Diwali celebrations, Chinese New Year, and pot luck in my friend’s dorm when I felt homesick has made this year so much more than just getting a masters. Back home in the US, Halloween is super popular, but when I came here, I realized it wasn’t the same for my non-American classmates. So; we celebrated together and dressed up as La Casa de Papel (aka Money Heist).
I’m super happy to say, all my hard work has paid off and I’ve accepted a dream job within the marketing team of a great company. This is exactly what I was hoping for before coming to Hult; when I set my mind to something I don’t stop until I achieve it. Woohoo!
Being a Hult Global Ambassador has been as fun as it has been rewarding. This role is all about representing what it means to be part of the Hult community and to share our insights and experiences. I’m involved in just about everything, from events to social media takeovers to clubs and societies. I believe it has taken my Hult experience to another level.
