0:11 I've learnt a lot, whether that's finance, accounting, marketing, e-marketing, brand management.

0:26 I think what I enjoy about it the most is the fact that it's broad.

0:30 So I can decide to specialised any way I want to basically.

0:35 It's going to help me achieve my dreams and basically just do everything I've ever wanted to. I think

0:43 it has helped me gain more confidence in myself because I think I've been worried about graduating.

0:49 I think the university has a lot to offer, especially with the business school, probably because that's the only thing I know.

0:06 Well the staff are so friendly and accessible  I knew I could go to them with any issues I  

0:11 had or any questions about assignments it was  a really relaxed atmosphere and relationship  

0:16 that I had with them and I knew that they  cared about what I was interested in as well.  

0:21 I made the most out of the societies because when  you come to University for the first time it was  

0:26 nice to know that there was just so many different  opportunities available there was a running  

0:30 club, we would run around Bangor sometimes in  Treborth and that just offered the opportunity  

0:36 to get out and about meet people again. I'm  making friends now that I've made for life.  

0:42 We do offer personal one-to-one tutee's and it's  just a really colligative atmosphere to work in  

0:48 and I do sincerely believe the students benefit from that  as well. When students are actually engaging  

0:53 with you which is fantastic and you know that  you're making a difference that's really rewarding.

1:00 They were always happy to  help any time you send an email they'd answer

1:03 so as soon as they could. Just that total support  there all the time only an email away and all  

1:04 the new friends I've made and all the communities  in Bangor it's great.

1:17 So I lived up at

1:18 the St Mary's Halls which is quite a nice little  tight-knit community it was really good and really  

1:23 refreshing as well to have people both from my  course in my flat but also from other courses.

1:31 Bangor is such a beautiful area you've got Snowdon or the Wyddfa so close by and just  

1:36 being able to climb that venture around to  different parts of North Wales is brilliant.

Margaret Cowan - Bangor Business School Alumni

Graduate Profile Margaret Cowan

I am certain I would not be where I am today if I had not studied at Bangor University. Without the dedicated support and encouragement from my lecturers, I would not have pushed myself to apply for a master’s and would most likely have settled for a job I wasn’t satisfied with. Instead, I completed my MSc and started a position I am incredibly passionate about straight out of university. 

 George Krokos Bangor Business School Alumni

Graduate Profile George Krokos

I choose Bangor due to the ranking of the Financial Economics course, the syllabus, and the location of the University. I grew up in the centre of Athens and thus wanted to move to a more remote and smaller town. Bangor's located in one of the most beautiful parts of the UK, that coupled with the university’s student satisfaction statistics made me take the plunge and I must say I never regretted it!

0:00 Hi I'm Natalia Ehenulo, I'm from Reading. A lot of the exams obviously written and

0:06 you know for me particularly we're doing either equations

0:09 or we're doing essays but the lecturers also take the time to really go through

0:14 software systems that you will do eventually when you come out even if we don't do it in the

0:19 exam for example stator and Excel we can't do those in the exams but they think about the long

0:24 term, the longevity of our skills as well and they make sure we do that we've done it in assignments

0:30 I know for credit risk analytics we have to use a Excel to calibrate the Merton model I know

0:37 for research methods and financial econometrics we've also had to use Stata and these are really

0:42 employable skills. I know when I was looking for jobs outside of University that a lot of companies

0:49 ask us to have proficiency in Excel or python r or some sort of data software and having those skills

0:56 already enabled in us really makes it easier to fill out those applications and meet the skill

1:02 requirements that employers are looking for. It definitely did help and it's definitely something

1:08 that I'm glad that I've had the opportunity to do whilst being here.
