Student Profile(s)

Odusola Abimbola Philips

“I chose to study within the Essex Business School at the University of Essex because of its excellent rating as a top ten university for research. I really enjoy the depth of up-to-date research I am able to engage in, and it is great to get the opportunity to solve real case studies with our lecturers and other students on the course.

What I have enjoyed most about being at Essex is being part of the diverse community at the Colchester Campus. I have had the opportunity to make friends with people from so many different cultures and backgrounds. It has really helped me learn about other people’s attitudes and beliefs and I am sure that the friends I have made will stay my friends for life.

The school itself is very friendly and the lecturers are easy to talk to which has made my time here so enjoyable. The University also provides everything you could need on campus, from shops to the library, and places to hang out with friends.

When I leave Essex, my ultimate aim is to start a consulting firm for creative industries in Nigeria. I have gained so much knowledge from my time studying here and I really believe that this knowledge will be invaluable to the firms in creative industries back home.”
