“I am really proud and grateful for having been selected to receive the prestigious Worshipful Company of Marketors Award for my Dissertation from the MSc Marketing Programme at Queen Mary, University of London (Dissertation Title: “Friend or Foe? The Influence of Luxury and Sustainability on Consumers’ Willingness to Pay”)!  This work required a lot of hard work and dedication, and I could not be more happy with the result!   Also, I want to thank my supervisor Dr. Stephan Dickert who provided guidance throughout the whole process in regards to creativity, contents and any further insecurities I was fighting.   Being given this award has and will surely continue to help me gain an essential advantage in the business world and in the future in general - it showcases essential personal as well as professional strength”.
