Student Profile(s)

Olamilekan Chukwuma Iwuamadi

Why did you choose to study at Kent Business School?

I was attracted to KBS mostly by the inter-cultural environment because I believe in networking and human relationships as a yardstick for success. Also, it's a high-level ranking as a top UK business school with relevant and top-notch course modules and a student-friendly environment. Being an international student, I was also assisted in every way during my visa application by the university's representative here in Nigeria.

What attracted you to your programme of study and why?

During my undergraduate study (B.Sc Economics) I felt comfortable working with numbers such as data analysis during statistical course modules. This propelled my drive to pursue a masters degree in Business Analytics, in which I can learn the application of arithmetic, statistical analysis and data analysis in improving my business acumen and entrepreneurial skills.

What do you hope to do after you complete your studies?

I intend to continue my education by pursuing a PhD in Operational Research, also at Kent Business School.
