MSc e-Business Management

When did you study at the University of Warwick?

I attended the University of Warwick between 2008-2009.

Did you consider any other universities when you applied? What made you choose Warwick?

When I applied I considered the University of Manchester too, but at the time I enrolled, Warwick was one of the best Universities in the UK. I had checks the Times, The Guardian and some other publications for Warwick’s rating. As much as my parents wanted me to attend Warwick, I also had to do my research about my course (e-Business Management) and University of Warwick. This also encouraged my younger brother to apply to Warwick having read the success stories.

Did you receive any help with your application to the University, or your visa application? Did you contact the University to find out more information?

When I discovered the course, I contacted Warwick Manufacturing Group (WMG) and Warwick Business School to find out more about the course. I also contacted the Africa Team for information and advice, and they put me in touch with the accommodation team, who advised on the requirements for the accommodation application.

I applied online for the course, and did research on the internet for information on the visa application process as well.

What were your first impressions of the University when you arrived/during orientation?

I just thought 'Wow! What a beautiful school!'. Campus has lots of pleasant green spaces to spend time. My accommodation at Lakeside was also impressive, it was one of the best things about my time at Warwick.

Were you a member of any societies whilst you were here?

Yes, I was a member of the Nigerian Society, British Computer Society and Association of Women in Science.

What did you go on to do after graduation?

After graduation, I proceeded with my internship with African Development Bank (AfDB) in Tunisia, Worked as Research Assistant on Donor Funded Agencies and Presently with National Health Insurance Scheme in Nigeria as an ICT Specialist

What one thing makes you happy about Warwick?

Seeing a lot of people being successful after graduating from Warwick.
