Education
    BSc (Hons) Business StudiesDe Montfort University
     - Leicester, United Kingdom
    This degree prepared me for a career in business development and management. It equipped me with a broad, integrated understanding of the key aspects of business and the ever changing environment in which businesses operate. It focuses on applied research and management models which can be used to improve business performance. I also learned to analyse quantifiable information in order to make decisions. As part of my studies I had the opportunity to work with business professionals and local communities on live projects. This helped me to gain valuable experience and learn to critique business theory in practice.
