Tell us about your course – why did you choose it? What elements of the course inspired you to choose the Business School/University?

I was looking for an MSc Organizational/Occupational Psychology course in the UK and Leeds University's course was the most convincing. It offered what I was looking for; a systems perspective. It became clear from the modules that the course would equip me with both theoretical and practical knowledge. The modules embraced all levels of organizational operations which was evident from the module descriptions and titles.

Do you have any noteworthy achievements from your study at the Business School that you can tell us about?

Best Dissertation Award.

Were your career aspirations expanded by studying here?

Absolutely, I have started working at a small consultancy firm and my aspirations to do a PhD have been affirmed.

What is your current role and with which employer? 

I'm a Product Owner at a start-up company. I'm working with partners and clients as well as developing the product. I am also responsible for training.

What did you learn at the Business School that has helped you in your current role?

I gained true insights into a wide range of business topics and I also learned to approach them critically. I enjoyed the dissertation project, throughout which we had to think as both a consultant and a researcher. At the moment I am working as a consultant, and whenever I have questions and queries about the process, I still use my experiences from the dissertation project.

What was your experience of the facilities, the staff, your peers, the student union, the City of Leeds and the region itself?

Members of staff were always very helpful. Facilities were of a high standard. The Union was simply amazing.

Would you recommend the Business School to others?

I would fully recommend the Business School to others because of the high standard of teaching and the professional attitude of the academic staff. Professional staff were always open for discussions and feedback.
