James Selby

BA (Hons) Business and Marketing Management, graduated 2009

I graduated and joined Electronic Arts (EA) as a Product Marketing Associate. I soon became a brand manager of the FIFA video game on mobile and Facebook. The strategic marketing and communications modules I had studied at Brookes really helped me in planning the brand's three-year strategy.

In 2012, EA offered me the role of Senior Business Lead and moved me to San Francisco. Oxford Brookes gave me incredible experiences, including studying in Australia, and taught me about business models and strategic thinking that have been invaluable in my career.
