My name is Garet Quigg. I am a 23 year old Masters student from the United States. I received my undergraduate degree in International Business, and I am looking forward to the challenge of completing my MSc Strategy and International Business from Aston. I grew up in a small, close-knit community in central Missouri. When I’m not Skyping with my girlfriend, Valeria (she lives in Venezuela), I enjoy spending time with my friends and family. I go to the gym whenever I can, and I love to watch and play just about any sport. Some of my hobbies include working with Photoshop and Wordpress, and playing FIFA with my friends. I chose the MSc Strategy and International Business program at Aston because of it’s well-rounded and diverse curriculum. The program not only teaches the fundamental principles of strategic planning, but it always students to gain firsthand experience through the consultancy based dissertation. I am really excited for everything going on in the next year! Valeria and I will be living together in City Centre, and we will hopefully have some great stories and advice to share with everyone. I cannot wait to get started and share my experiences of being a student at Aston!
