The lecturers are excellent, very enthusiastic about their job and always ready to help. I have found help and comfort in my tutors every time I needed their guidance.

I have developed myself as a person by meeting new people coming from different cultures. I have also been starting to learn the underlying concepts of how the business world works and increased my knowledge in this area.

Coming to study at Southampton has undoubtedly been one of the best decisions I have made.

I wanted to study business in the UK and University of Southampton is one of the highest ranked universities in England. The course looked very innovative and the modules seemed to suit me well. Also, the fact that Southampton is pretty close to London, as well as the coast, made the city a good fit for me.

Southampton's global links allowed me to develop both personally and academically; I spent a year in Hong Kong for my third year of study. The opportunities to broaden your horizons are endless.

It is one of the most reputable universities, not only in England, but across the world being in the top percentile.

One of the highlights of my time at Southampton has most definitely been partaking in the Business School Society. Getting involved with a society has enabled me to make new friends.

Business Analytics has provided me with a real technical understanding of both mathematical and computational techniques for data science and general business application.

After completing an internship at Deloitte I was offered I graduate job in the audit service line. Without being exposed to employment opportunities whilst at the University this would not have been possible.

My degree has offered me chances to explore various aspects of business and my placement next year would help me gain practical knowledge of the business world and improve my professional skills.

I’ve most enjoyed seeing how the topics I’ve studied in first and second year were relevant in the workplace during my placement year at Walt Disney. For example, Portfolio Theory helped me to understand foreign exchange rates, which I used frequently in my role.

The academic & non-academic opportunities I have under-taken here has not only shaped my career decisions but has also given me the confidence that I am capable of achieving my future goals

The modules included in the course are so varied and give a complete view of the business world, which makes me feel more engaged in what I’m doing and has broadened my knowledge.

Whilst there is a strong accounting focus, the course’s varied technical content prepares you for many other financial service professions. I spent my placement year at an investment bank, followed by a summer internship at an asset manager, and subsequently accepted a graduate offer from the latter.

Currently in my placement year, I am a Business Operation (Planning and Analysis) Intern at Norwegian Cruise Lines, which involves preparing daily, weekly and monthly reports for Passenger’s Services, across three brands and different countries. I also plan rosters for teams such as Reservations and Helpdesk, and assist the call centre operation on a daily basis.

The business department in particular really makes an effort to vary their teaching methods to ensure the course is as engaging as possible.

The best thing I have done outside of my course is my placement year with BMW. I got to work in their fast-paced events team for a year, taking on lots of responsibility and applying the theory studied in my degree.

Overall I would say Southampton is a place of opportunity.

The University of Southampton offer some fantastic business fairs and events. I’ve met representatives of every bank from Barclays to Zurich, supermarkets from Lidl to Tesco and many others such as Network Rail, Amazon and Jaguar. Having the opportunity to talk to the industry directly about what they are looking for in graduates, really helps shape the person you will become over the next 3 or 4 years.

I chose Southampton because I wanted to go to a University that had a good reputation and high quality staff, who are also active researchers.

The up-to-date curriculum of my course and the passionate nature of the lecturers has allowed me to fully engage with my degree.

The opportunity to discuss ideas, concepts, and assignments with my peers has truly enhanced my experience here at Southampton. Given the technical nature of the Business Analytics course, discussing different techniques and approaches can truly sharpen your critical thinking skills.

My time at Southampton has helped me grow in confidence. Presentation for projects seem daunting at first but once you complete a few, you can do 100! Uni has also helped improve my critical analysis skills, e.g. questioning where the information is coming from, what are the actual statistics etc.

The most enjoyable element of my course is having guest speakers come in and hold interactive lectures. Learning from people who are currently in inspiring job roles is eye opening as to what I can potentially do in the future.

Being around more than 20,000 other students makes it a very inspiring and supporting place to study. I enjoy my course, especially how interactive some lectures are. The highlight of my time here has been my placement at Meridian Corporate Finance.

Being an individual who enjoys in-depth analysis of the business industry, BSc Business Entrepreneurship offers creativity and freedom in choosing the aspects I am most passionate about, rather than having to study standardised topics.

I was amazed by the amount of opportunities and support that University of Southampton offers. I have participated in some workshops such as Deloitte’s teamwork interview, psychometric tests, and been a digital champion.
