Choosing to study at Lancaster University is one of the best decisions I have ever made! Friends and professors have made a lasting impact on my career and my life. The highlight of the programme for me was the consulting project, which provided real-world work experience that was invaluable to me upon re-entering the workforce. I am now employed by Deloitte Canada as a consultant in the human capital consulting practice.

I found LUMS to be a good place to study because of its reputation all over the world. I chose this particular programme, as it includes practical projects which were very beneficial for my development. Not only did I learn from my tutors, but also from my classmates. Outside of studies, I enjoyed sitting in the sunshine in Alexandra Square and watching the Roses football matches. After graduating, I intend to go back to China and work in Human Resources.

I chose LUMS based on its position in the rankings, and referrals from my very close friends who had enjoyed a boost in their career after being part of LUMS. I mostly enjoyed the multicultural mix of people, the teaching methods used in the programme and being part of a real-life consulting project. To be honest, every single second spent at Lancaster was a refreshing experience!

The opportunity to study overseas at a prestigious business school was one I could not pass up. The programme at LUMS was exciting because it was not only theoretical; there was a lot of practical work which involved dealing with real businesses as an outsourced consultant. Moreover, working with people from all around the world encouraged me to become more open-minded.

The programme is well-designed for students to learn practically how to be a good consultant by working with real clients. I enjoyed working with my international classmates, learning from my tutors and working on consultancy projects.

I had previous experience in the HR field before coming to LUMS, which I chose because it was the only business school to offer the particular mix of courses I wanted and because of its consistently high rankings. The degree is a hugely marketable one, aided by the real-world consultancy project.

LUMS offered me a great opportunity to pursue a degree to help my career progress as well as to build up a strong international network. The programme also has an excellent reputation. I appreciated the feedback given by the client for my consultancy project and was pleased to continue working with them for my dissertation. I now run my own coaching and HR consultancy business called Reflective Coaching.
