How did studying at Pearson College London help you get into the world of business?
Getting a university degree is common practice. However, studying at Pearson College London was an experience like no other. Because of the network of hardworking people and industry contacts, many doors are opened by Pearson College London, but it’s every student’s individual responsibility to embrace opportunities available. That I believe I did.
Having completed three valuable internships, learned a 2nd language and met inspirational people, I believe I have more than a BA degree. I’m more confident and self-aware with strong career aspirations. Pearson College London encouraged me to push beyond my comfort zone, challenge my skillset and build my business network. Pearson College London is more than a traditional university experience. This personal and professional development meant I had the experience and confidence to obtain a Marketing Manager role after graduation.
