BA (Hons) Business Management (2 Year Accelerated)

I grew up in London but I went back to Nigeria to work when I left school. I was working in a bank but I wanted something different for my life…

I looked at the location – central London, surrounded by great universities. Oxford St just down the road. I was shown round the campus and I liked it… I felt listened to from the first time I stepped through the door.

Doing an accelerated course is fantastic – doing a 3 year course in 2 years is fantastic. There’s not many places that let you do that.

The link up with KPMG is a big deal. They come every few weeks to give us presentation skills, interview skills, how to talk in business situations… This type of inside knowledge – how to stand out from the crowd when you’re applying for a job – is so valuable.

If you want to do a masters at Birkbeck you can get a place – that’s a big advantage with Bloomsbury Institute.

If you’re thinking of coming here, get ready to engage. Get involved. Talk to people, network. Think about it – Apple, Google, Microsoft – they were all started by people who met at university.
