First class degree and a Graduate job with Sprinklr

Huge congratulations to Year in Business (YIB) student Hippolyte Petit who has just Graduated from Royal Holloway with a First Class degree in Management with Marketing (Year in Business) and who has secured a full time contract with Sprinklr, a Social media management platform which provides digital transformation for enterprise businesses, with a focus on customer-first.



Hippolyte did a Digital Marketing placement year at The Walt Disney Company followed by a summer internship in New York with Sprinklr and then part time work with Sprinklr in London during his final year.

Like many of our finalist YIB students, Hippolyte has been a fabulous ambassador for the YIB programme. Many students have heard Hippolyte speak at different YIB events/ workshops or seen his video profiles and blog articles. http://yearinbusiness.blogspot.co.uk/2016/12/hippolyte-petit-promotes-year-in.html

Hippolyte told us
"Things are going extremely well, I have just signed my full time contract with Sprinklr and am fascinated by the job I am doing. Like at Disney, there is not a day without learning something new and I am getting more and more responsibilities, being in charge of client like Rolex, Swatch and more. I will always be grateful to Royal Holloway's School of Management for letting me seize the opportunity to join the Walt Disney Company after my second year. Since my placement year I have been offered by the College opportunities to share more about my Year in Business experiences, to speak in public and to coach fellow students, which have been fantastic experiences."
