BA Hons International Business








Why did you decide to study at the University of Greenwich?

I decided to study at the University of Greenwich because it offered me exactly the programme I was looking for: International Business.

In the heart of the Royal Borough of Greenwich, the University is located in a beautiful and vibrant place and with all the international students that come to study here, it really makes such a programme interesting and diverse.

What extracurricular activities did you get involved in while at university?

In my final year, I was Business School Representative and President of the Economics and Business Society. This was an amazing experience which helped me develop leadership skills, but also allowed me to get to know more students studying business and economics courses. I was also the Bloomberg Campus Ambassador.

Through this role I was exposed to the industry and markets Bloomberg is operating in, I informed students about job opportunities through the Bloomberg Aptitude Test (BAT) and hosted information as well as test sessions on campus.

What did the role as a Campus Ambassador for Bloomberg involve?

Bloomberg Institute, the educational division of Bloomberg LP, approached me as the President of the Economics and Business Society and expressed interest in working with us to raise Bloomberg's profile on campus and inform students about their Bloomberg Aptitude Test.

As a result of our collaboration, I became Campus Ambassador here and secured a summer internship with Bloomberg Institute. During my internship, I was involved in various activities and projects that really helped me to develop my skills and employability.

What advice would you give to first year students who are just starting now?

My advice for first year students is essentially to make the most of your time here. Get involved in everything the university has to offer, whether these are talks, seminars, or things that the Student Union has to offer.

Be part of your community! Show what you have to offer, contribute. There is so much to gain from it.

What are you up to now that you've graduated?

After graduating from the University of Greenwich, I completed a Master's in Management at the London School of Economics, and following this, I began my PhD at the University of Cambridge in the field of Operations Management.

I'm now in the last year of the PhD programme and I'm very excited about the opportunity to come back to Greenwich and share this experience with students starting now.
