How did studying at Pearson College London help you get into business?
First of all, Pearson College London’s course gave a realistic view of entrepreneurship and the skill set needed to personally develop myself as an individual and stand out in the crowd. There was a lot of room for flexibility within studying and industry events which allowed me to expand my knowledge in London. Pearson College London took a holistic approach and showed all of the different avenues that I could go into - that really caught my eye as I was able to understand a brief overview of different industries.
As Pearson College London was a new institution I was able to start up a society in finance by myself and gather students on board - I was able to leverage and create a platform for students.
What was your favourite part of studying at Pearson College London?
The best part for me studying at Pearson College London was its location. The amount of people you could network with and the opportunities available. This was due to the college being close to a lot of industries and events in the city.
