Student Profile

Samuel Pattison

Graduated in 2021

Having completed my undergraduate degree in Economics at another university I decided to pursue a master’s degree and thought Durham University Business School would be the ideal place for me to do so. Studying at Durham University Business School has not only been engaging and an overall enjoyable experience but it has also helped me land my current role at a prestigious Investment Bank. I am incredibly grateful for the Scholarship I received from the Business School, without I would not have been able to study at Durham.
