(Student Profile)

May Zhang (MA International Public Relations)

I chose Cardiff University because it is one of the leading schools in the United Kingdom and it has a high ranking and good reputation in China. Longer term, I want to become a marketing or branding manager in the fashion industry. For this reason I took two postgraduate programmes at Cardiff and I firmly believe they will help me to fulfil my career ambitions.

Sharifah Adlina Syed Abdullah (MSc International Economics, Banking and Finance)

"I have very much enjoyed my course and the facilities (computers, libraries and lecture theatres) in Cardiff Business School are excellent. I have also found the city of Cardiff to be very friendly. The university and the city centre are very close to each other and, to help you feel at home, there is also a range of different foods available, including Asian, Continental, Caribbean and Western. During my time here, I have found a good balance between studying and doing social activities with my two children, husband and friends."

Geraint Harvey (Human Resource Management)

“I initially decided to pursue a taught postgraduate course to enhance my employment potential, but decided to stay on and read for my doctorate because of the encouragement and enthusiasm offered by members of staff at all levels within the School. Cardiff Business School has an enviable reputation, both in the UK and abroad, and the support offered to postgraduate students in the School is exceptional.”
