What was your time at university like?

I started my bachelors at the Business School (formerly Cass) in September 2017. My journey there was both enriching and exciting. I was able to meet people from all over the world with whom I became friends, some of them also became like family.

I learned a lot from my time at the university. I was able to develop my knowledge in different areas. Indeed, the formation that the Business School proposes allows you to learn how to become effective in the labour market handle as we are constantly confronted to real life situations, and therefore, we need to learn to work in teams, and to have a critical mind.

Hence, I can say that my time at the university allowed me to grow personally as well as professionally.

What was the most memorable part of your university experience?

My most memorable experience at the university was when I co-created with two friends of mine the society “CASS-Morocco”. It was a really exciting experience because I was able to present all the aspects of my culture to my fellow friends.

We worked very hard to create this society, therefore, we were really proud of ourselves when the society started to become popular. In order to raise money for events, we were selling Moroccan food which was really fun because I had the impression that I was at home.

What has your career journey been like since graduating?

I made the decision to start a Masters rather than apply directly for a job. I want to deepen my knowledge in the business sector before entering into the labour market.

What advice would you give students who are thinking of studying here?

The advice that I can give to the students who wants to start their bachelor at the Business School (formerly Cass) is to not leave anything until the last minute. Indeed, I truly believe that the secret to achieve a high academic performance is to be up to date. This will permit students to be less stressed when exams approach and therefore, it will maximise their ability to get higher grades.

The second advice that I can give is to enjoy London and your time at the university. It is a one-time opportunity and a unique experience that will mark you for life.

What is the one thing you can’t live without?

The one thing that I can’t live without is my passport. I am someone who is in constant search for new cultures to learn from. Therefore, being able to travel the world and discover new things each time is something that is really close to my heart.

For this exact same reason, London was the perfect place for me to flourish. Indeed, it is a really cosmopolitan city, hence, I was able to connect with people from all over the world.
