Duncan MacArthur

BA (Hons) Business Studies


The Business Studies course offered flexibility with a broad range of subjects covering all areas of management and business organisations. This was useful and helped me to decide on a future career path.

Stirling has excellent on-campus sporting facilities and I was offered a sports scholarship which enabled me to balance studies and competing.  They also have a good Career Development Centre which provided me with help and advice to gain a summer internship at the end of my 3rd year.

The broad range of subjects enabled me to choose those that related to my future career path. We were also given the opportunity to hear from and meet a number of business leaders and see how some course content applied in the real business world.

I will start on the Customer and Business Operations graduate programme with Centrica in October. In particular the management modules that I studied will be useful because I will be leading a group of staff. The group assignments element of my course will also help me in group tasks.
