Alumnus, Elliott Parsons (Executive MBA 2017) was welcomed back to the Business School to share his career experiences with the current MBA cohort. Elliott who will complete his MBA at the Business School this year is now an Operations Manager at Amazon.
Elliott joined the British Army after finishing school however after five years he was ready for a new challenge. He joined the University of Leeds and embarked on a BSc in Aviation Technology with Management. Upon graduation he joined QinetiQ briefly, before moving to AirTanker to take on the role of Project Manager. He spent a lot of time travelling internationally, spending much time on Ascension Island.
In 2015 Elliott began his Executive MBA at the Business School. He joined Amazon for a three month summer internship and was so successful he was asked to stay permanently as an MBA Pathways Graduate.
The session was a great opportunity for students to learn more about working in a managerial role as well as the company culture at Amazon.
