Why did you choose to study at LUMS?

LUMS is internationally recognised and highly reputable. After my first visit to the school, I was blown away by the community atmosphere and quality of the management school. It made my decision to join LUMS very easy.

What was the best thing about your course?

The challenging nature of the programme. It has pushed me out of my comfort zone to view two important subjects through different lenses. This has helped me gain a varied skill set, one that is critical and analytical.

What/who inspired you most at LUMS and why?

The students around me. Everyone in the LUMS community has an impressive background. They are all driven and hardworking, and truly make it a special atmosphere to learn and develop.

Describe your time at LUMS in three words.

Life-changing. Challenging. Enjoyable.

What are your best memories of your time at Lancaster?

I will always be proud of the work at the 93% Club Lancaster, a cause I am extremely passionate about. Go check it out on the Students' Union website!

Which parts of your Lancaster experience were the best preparation for your job?

The Careers modules and real-world context of the learning.

What impact has your Lancaster experience had on your career?

All the careers events and the Econ 105/205 modules really equipped me with valuable skills to enter and navigate the job market. I hope to carry these learnings when I start my career.
