Senior Business Consultant, HSBC
The course that Ged did, BSc Management Science, is no longer available. It has been replaced by BSc Business Analytics and Consultancy.
I enjoyed my time in Lancaster immensely. The city is easy to get to grips with and the collegiate set-up at the University fosters a real sense of community.
The Management School equips you with the skills you need to become a highly employable individual. Since graduating with a BSc in Management Science I have joined the consulting practice within Deloitte, one of the world's leading professional services firms.
I believe the BSc in Management Science gives an excellent grounding to students who wish to pursue a career in consulting. The degree produces graduates with a good understanding of project management methods, strong analytical skills, and an excellent grasp of the way in which IT systems underpin organisations.
During my time at Lancaster University the Management School went from strength to strength, in terms of its profile within industry and the recognition it received for its first-class teaching and research. I have personally been very impressed with how relevant my degree has been to the first 18 months of my career as a consultant.
Since writing this profile, Ged has become a Senior Business Consultant at HSBC.
