When I heard about the Production Game for the first time in the academic welcome session, little did I know that I would be spending a lot of my time working on it. It is one of the most happening academic events in the Business School.
Meeting new people is exciting. And you’ll meet lots of new people whose accomplishments will blow you away in your first weeks in Edinburgh. Everyone I’ve met seems to be trilingual and has completed double degrees and/or has come from an impressive career. I’m sure I will learn a lot from the diverse perspectives and experiences my fellow students will bring to the table this year.
Doing a Masters or pursuing further study is a significant step to take. It may mean you that you are not satisfied with your current life, or that you want to change something in your life. The Business School provides you with lots of opportunities to make that happen.
One of the optional electives I chose as part of my specialisation was International Business in Context (IBC Colombia). In this course, students have the opportunity to travel to Bogota and Medellin in Colombia to work on a mini-consultancy project with a large local company.
Exploring your self awareness is a lifelong journey and I have come to realise that it is never too late to change things about yourself. After participating in the Edinburgh Award, which supports students to become more self-aware, I have experienced some magical changes and have truly benefited from my increased sense of self-awareness.
You can learn a lot from the academic environment at the School, but to be a successful business person, you’ll need to develop the right personal skills as well. Coaching is one of the key ways that we will help you nurture your talent to help you achieve your personal and professional goals, improve your performance at the School and in your future career.
