The Derby Experience
I chose to study at Derby as, compared to other universities' finance-related study programmes, Derby offers the most relevant modules that are fundamental for successful future finance professionals. In addition, Derby is very student-friendly city, located in the heart of England.
I enjoyed each and every moment I spent studying at Derby. One of my highlights was founding a new Business & Entrepreneurship Society together with a couple of other like-minded Business College students. Another one was winning Lucy Ann Butcher Memorial Prize for Best International Business student.
The support that the university offers to its students is second to none. The lecturers, International Students Centre and Careers and Employment Service, were always willing to help on any matter – both academic or personal.
Helping with my career progression
I am currently working as a Finance Analyst at Tata Steel in Sheffield. In addition, I am studying towards the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) professional qualification.
I apply the knowledge and skills I developed while studying at Derby everyday - whether that's at work or my further studies. Choosing to study at the University of Derby was one of the best decisions in my life!
