"My degree allowed me to be an entrepreneur. For somebody who was 18 at the time, I never thought in detail what setting up a business would look like. Combining business insights with academia, my degree has put me in a position to reach my goals."

"The University of Greenwich run a business planning competition, it offers students the opportunity to be coached and mentored, to take their ideas and have it turned into a reality."

Yvonne Platt
BA Hons Business Management graduate

"I'd tell other students to definitely apply for internships. You don't want to miss out on the opportunity to gain that experience and it's a perfect way for you to get a little taster about whether you like that industry."

Jake Nunn
