Temitope Ola Fadeyi

"Two good degrees in three years and the opportunity to serve my colleagues as undergraduate and postgraduate student representative on senate and council were the highlights of my success story at the University. I am now a proud alumnus of the University and I won't trade that for anything in the world. The teaching, support and attention I got from my tutors at the Business School was amazing. The University was definitely a good value for my money during my time."

(Student Profile)

Yvonne Wangechi Migwi

"When I reflect on my one year in the MSC Management in a Global Service Economy programme I must say I have matured intellectually and socially which has prepared me even more in unpredictable ways for my career.
First and foremost, the learning environment that the University of Buckingham offered was very conducive. I found myself enjoying the peaceful neighbourhood and welcoming community that gave me a sense of belonging which was ideal especially being an international student. Working with students from diverse cultural backgrounds was insightful and listening to their different outlooks communicated across the multi-cultural teams was revealing and at the same time enjoyable.
My highlight of the programme was the quality of the content delivered by the lecturers who have extensive professional and academic experience. The practical case studies carried out in groups covered the missing gaps and linked the different business topics together, leading me to have a macro view on todays globalized realm essential for the continuation of my professional career. In addition, carrying out a self –independent six month research was at first challenging but with the supportive administration and encouragement from my peers, the journey proved to be informative and enlightening. I can honestly say, the programme has really helped me look at things differently with more perspective on one hand and a distinction on the other hand!!"
