Why did you choose to study at LUMS?

The Marketing Management degree provided by LUMS has been ranked very highly in the UK.

What was the best thing about your course?

The best thing about my course was how professional and educated our lecturers were.

What/who inspired you the most at LUMS and why?

Victoria Metcalf and Jekaterina Rindt. They care about students so much. Guiding students to become successful is what they value the most. They both inspired me to not give up on what I wanted, and made me believe that I have the ability to achieve everything during my time at LUMS.

Did you do a project, placement or study abroad? What did this involve and what did you gain?

I did a placement year at Sony Semiconductor Solutions Group as a Marketing Analyst. The placement year boosted my confidence and self-belief. I did my placement year during Covid-19, so despite working from home, I managed to learn a lot about image sensors and the semiconductor industry.

Describe your time at LUMS in three words.
