Tina Scherer (centre with Professor Tom Thomas) has been awarded an MA in Marketing Management from Southampton Solent University.

ICM’s Chief Executive, Professor Tom Thomas, attended an awards ceremony on Friday 23 May at Southampton Solent University to present the ICM-sponsored ‘Best Fast Track Student’ award to Tina Scherer.

Tina studied for a Masters degree in Marketing Management and received the award in recognition of her achievements during her studies at the university.

As a ‘fast track’ student – an option available to students holding a Professional Postgraduate Diploma – Tina has studied Research Methods and written a comprehensive dissertation.

Professor Tom Thomas commented: “I was delighted to present Tina with this award – I understand that she has performed consistently well during the course and has produced work of an excellent standard. ICM is proud to sponsor awards such as these and to recognise the hard work and dedication of all students, both in the UK and abroad.”

Tina is now working as an International Marketing Manager at Siemens Financial Services. She added: “I very much enjoyed the fast track programme at Southampton Business School, and found it a very unique and rewarding experience. The course is well structured and the teaching is of a high standard.

“I would recommend the course to people looking for a comprehensive academic and practical way to broaden their marketing knowledge. Particularly the dissertation which gave me the opportunity to combine my practically gained marketing knowledge with the theory, which stimulated new ways of thinking.”

As part of the award, Tina received a cheque from ICM for £100.
