Sam Mott recently finished studying the Business Management BSc programme and during his time here experienced some exclusive opportunities that are only available at Birmingham Business School.

Why Birmingham Business School?

I chose Birmingham Business School due to its top reputation, and the opportunity to develop my studies in areas that interested me.

The course also gave me the chance to study a wide range of topic areas, meaning that I now have a greater scope of knowledge and employment options.

The Birmingham experience

The campus location allows a mix of City life, with the distance needed for studying. Also Birmingham itself has such a mix of culture and activity that you always have new things to try. However, for things that you cannot do in the City, which are very few, you can travel to anywhere in the UK or the EU easily and cheaply.

I recommend taking the Capgemini Community Challenge; it's exclusive to this University and gives you practical consultancy and management experience, which is fantastic for job opportunities either in Capgemini, or elsewhere.

The school gave me a great part-time opportunity which involved working on open days. This usually took about 3-4 hours two or three times a term. This role involved great training, and a lot of freedom when working. It included leading campus tours, and managing the overall visitor experiences. It's great experience and the money comes in handy too! 

Tips and advice

My advice to any students is to just ask. In my experience, by just asking you are demonstrating your interest and lecturures can see this. For example, once I'd had my feedback on essays, I always took the opportunity to go and see a lecturer.

In all cases, this increased my awareness on how to improve, and I was given extra information for exams and other modules.
