The degree which Dimitri studied, MSc Operational Research and Management Science, has changed its name to MSc Business Analytics.
There are many reasons that made me feel confident to study at LUMS. Its international reputation and high rankings among top universities ensure high-quality studies and great support. Also, LUMS has an excellent record of career prospects, with many of its students signing employment contracts earlier than the completion of their studies.
As part of my dissertation I worked for North West Ambulance Service NHS Trust. It was a great opportunity to work on a challenging client-focused project. This live summer project allowed me to put everything I had learned during the course into practice. During the project I worked closely with the client and advised senior management on how to achieve their objectives in the most efficient and effective way. This summer placement helped me develop core consulting skills and see where I could fit best in my future career.
My time at Lancaster University has provided a great opportunity to develop my skills and integrate with students from all over the world.
LUMS Careers support services provided great advice and guidance. Using the team's insightful information I had the opportunity to see what I was best suited to and what type of career path I would like to follow. I received great support throughout the application process and I was able to secure an employment contract before my graduation.
All the LUMS advisors are well experienced and help students to achieve their goals. I would definitely recommend everyone attending LUMS to visit the LUMS Careers service, from the very beginning of their studies to the very end when seeking advice on future employment.
