The lecturers’ passion and real-world experience guided me to the path I wanted to take and the extracurricular activities gave me the business leadership skills needed to thrive early in my career.
What were the major contributing factors to your decision to study at ICMS?
The main factors were the specialised subjects you can study whilst doing a general business degree. Also the opportunity to be a part of a community that takes preparing you for success seriously. The location and reputation didn’t hurt either!

I was awarded the National Scholarship covering my first two years of tuition. I was also a Student Ambassador and led the Residential Assistant (RA team) as the Senior RA in my final term.
