'At 18, I knew I wanted to study business. At the same time, I was not sure which stream within business I would be interested in. As such, I wanted as much flexibility in terms of career choice and as wide of an exposure to different areas of business as possible. Upon reading modules offering of BSc Business Management programme at King's, I was impressed by the number of subjects choice, the level of subject specialisation available, and the employment rate of the students after graduation. During my 3 years at King's, I have chosen modules spanning from accounting and finance to economics, marketing, HR and law. Being in London is also a deciding factor for me.
At King's, as the number of hours attending lectures and tutorials is quite small relative to what I was used to, I have learned to independently study and do my own research. I have also built on my teamwork and leadership skill through working with other student to produce a written essay and deliver a presentation. Taking my own initiatives and actively asking questions are important skills I have gained during my time as an undergraduate student.
Outside of class, I founded a volunteering society through KCLSU in my 2nd year in collaboration with a London-based community organising group to help underprivileged students fulfill their potential. I am also a member of King's Vietnamese society and King's College London Business Club (KCLBC). In my spare time, as a student ambassador, I lead campus tour, give talks about King's, and visit schools around London.
The best thing about King's, however, is the opportunity to work alongside people with diverse backgrounds whose academic interest is different from mine. Listening to them passionately share their thought on a current topic relevant to their field of study is interesting and intellectually stimulating. Some of my closest friends actually do not study business - they are not even based at Waterloo where I study!
After graduation, I hope to begin my career in financial services and pursue a professional qualification.'
