BA Degree in Business Administration: International Business

"One of the many reasons I enjoyed my time at Richmond was because of the diversity of backgrounds and personalities of the students. Additionally, I recognized the benefits of small class sizes and the opportunities for creating strong ties with fellow students."

BA Degree in Business Management: International Business

Culture, language, political systems, geography, finance and socio-economic factors all shape and influence business. In order to be prepared for a career in any facet of this particular field, understanding and being able to apply business tools and theory with these factors in mind, is critical.

As an active participant in the Richmond Campus life, my days at Richmond were filled with activities and events. I was a Resident Director (RD) and assisted Student Affairs in ensuring the welfare of on campus students. In addition to being an RD, I was also a Student Ambassador Coordinator who welcomed prospective and newly- enrolled students to Richmond. After I graduated Richmond in 2009 with my BA in Business Administration: International Business and a Minor in Finance, I went on to further study at the London School of Economics (LSE). After securing a training contract with magic circle firm Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer I went on to complete my general diploma in law and the accelerated legal practice course at BPP Law School. I am currently training to be a solicitor at Freshfields and spent part of my training contract in both their London and Dubai offices.
A key element of the Richmond experience was that students learn to respect, value and appreciate the diversity of others; something I feel cannot be taught in the classroom.”
