(Student Profile)

Bashirat Oluwafunmi Alabi

5272.jpg My decision to enrol into the University of Bristol is to date the most crucial decision I have made regarding my future. Following my decision to embark on a post-graduate degree after close to two years in the corporate world; my main focal points in determining my choice of university was the reputation of the school and comprehensiveness of my intended course ‘Management’. Based in part on my research, soaring recommendations from my friends and alumni of Bristol I swiftly decided the University of Bristol encompassed all I needed in a university.

Without a doubt my decision has proven to be the right one as the school provides an academic environment that challenges its students in a rewarding way. The schools dedication to academic excellence and diversity are important ingredients for a comprehensive learning experience. The rich student and faculty body have broadened my spectrum on managing different types of issues. As a result, I am able to share views and ideas in the interactive classroom environment. I am continuously fascinated and challenged by the opportunity I have been given to learn from the best teams at Bristol.

An added advantage is the university’s proximity to the city center, shopping malls, cinema and museums which is where I spend most of my leisure time. In addition both the university and the city have rich cultural and historical heritage allowing me to immerse myself in various cultural legacies and engage in the annals of history.

Upon completion of my MSc program in Management at Bristol, I hope to have acquired as much management, organisational and financial skills as possible. Thereafter, I intend to establish a Management Training Institute in Nigeria. This Institute will serve as a means of disseminating knowledge and expertise in a manner that will positively impact the development of Nigerian professionals as they aspire to become leaders of tomorrow. The University of Bristol’s academic curriculum focuses on courses that provide a comprehensive grasp on management issues which will be critical and relevant to my objective. In addition, it provides a suitable environment for me to enhance my social and interpersonal skills in both my professional and personal life.
