Hello~ Very welcome you to my blog~! I am Vincent Gan, a Chinese student who studied Accounting in the United International College for my bachelor degree. It is my first time to study abroad which I believe will be a fantastic year.
Why ESB programme?
Before I came to Imperial College, I learned this course by reading its brochure online. Taught by faculty ranked 4th in the world, I thought this ESB programme would assist me to lay a solid foundation for pursuing a professional career, while also helping me attain a global perspective. Courses, such as “Corporate Strategy” and “Business Economics”, were likely to provide me with a strong footing in both theoretical concepts and practical applications. Imperial College also had a lot of world-class professors who were technically competent, efficient and possessed a good work ethic. This college chose the best graduates from universities around the world as well so a lot of things I could learn from my teachers and classmates.
After having studied here for around 4 weeks, I find many things exceeding my expectations. For instance, I have a fixed group which consists of six team members (including me) for the whole year. It is a quite international one since we have friends from Armenia, Croatia, France and the UK. After collaborating with each other, you are likely to obtain substantial amounts of international teamworking experience which in turn is a great asset to your CV. Secondly, our programme also offer free business cards printing service. It is pretty cool and professional when you present your cards to future employers, isn’t it? Additionally, the programme team here is supportive, helpful and efficient as well. When students have any study related problems, you can just go to Sue’s or Dr. Bakhru’s offices. Sending emails or posting a message on the hub are also available options. Usually you will get reply within one day. Next time, I will show you more about our Business School and what we have been taught for the two courses “Business Economics” and “Economics and Strategy for Innovation”.
