What you studied at UG

For my undergraduate degree, I studied Accounting and Financial Management at Sheffield University Management School.

What you studied at PG

I decided to stay on at the Management School and do a postgraduate degree, MSc Management and Leadership. I wanted to broaden and deepen my knowledge in these subject areas and have a chance to undertake my own academic research, in the form of a dissertation.

Why you decided to stay on in Sheffield and move department/stay in their department

Having completed my undergraduate degree here at the Management School, I knew first-hand the fantastic facilities and great reputation that they have. Living in Sheffield I have found my second home so I was comfortable and excited to continue my studies here.

What you have liked about PG studies

During my MSc in Management and Leadership, I have enjoyed the multicultural dimensions to learning, including making lots of friends along the way. It has been really interesting learning the theory behind leadership styles and theories and applying it in practice. Additionally, it has been interesting learning about new areas of management, such as marketing and entrepreneurial ventures.

What additional skills/knowledge you have developed

Throughout the year I have thoroughly developed my communication skills, in particular, intercultural communication. It has given me extensive experience and tools necessary to be able to reflect upon my actions and experiences as well as enhancing my cultural awareness.

What your career plans are (Maybe you are already in work, if so where)

When the course concludes, I have a job arranged in Internal Auditing for Mazars, based in London. Both my undergraduate and postgraduate courses have given me the confidence to take on this role and go forward to be successful in an international company.
