As a student in International business, I had the opportunity to study in a dynamic and challenging environment while learning the practical aspect of operations in the international business arena. This program provided me with invaluable insights and allowed me the flexibility to focus on my preferred modules such as Marketing and Human Resource management. The diverse cultural background of the students and rigorous subject matter allowed me to hone my abilities to think strategically, analyze critically and communicate effectively. In addition the students had chance to compete for the Al Tajir scholarship that was awarded based on academic excellence combined with an assignment. This was a very interesting and challenging project and I am grateful for the option to take part in it. Overall the year in Stirling was beneficial on both academic and personal levels and I believe it will help me to build successfully my future career.
