Hello, my name is Faith Ajari. I am Nigerian. I am currently a student in the MSc Economics and Strategy for Business programme at Imperial College Business School. I am highly interested in a career in consulting; therefore, as soon as I discovered the ESB programme, I immediately “fell in love” with it and applied. I love the fact that the course is very practical. In addition, I couldn’t ignore the fact that Imperial College London is a highly ranked university.
The first day of school was pretty amazing! I met and talked to people from various countries. So far, I have tried Lebanese and Spanish dishes, which I probably would never have tried had it not been for my culturally diverse course mates.
My classes have not disappointed at all. They are even better than I anticipated them to be. My top-notch professors don’t just teach the theoretical aspect of strategy. They also teach the practical aspects. What I love most about the ESB modules is the fact that I can relate what I am being taught in these modules to real life events.
This year, I decided to step out of my comfort zone by being active on campus. I successfully applied for the position of a Business School Ambassador. Through this position, I would be able to meet new people and hone skills such as communication skills that I need to be an excellent consultant.
I have only been here for a little over a month and Imperial College London has already given me the opportunities that I need to achieve my goals through employer events, student clubs and much more. Now the ball is in my court and I am definitely planning to take advantage of the many opportunities that are coming my way.
