Why Study Business & Administration?

Kieran’s Story

Kieran Fyfe left school after he sat his Highers in fifth year.

“I was only 16 so I thought I would come to college first before going to university to prepare me for the change. I only planned on staying for one year but I liked it so much that I decided to stay on to do the HND Business Management course too.”

During his two years at Dundee and Angus College Kieran was prepped for the world of business.

“We were introduced to a lot of different aspects such as marketing, human resources, accounting and IT,” says Kieran. “We were able to gain great insights to many areas of business and I really feel the courses built the foundations of who I am now as a business professional.”

Kieran progressed to a role as a Junior Global Project Manager with NCR while studying BSc Business Management at Dundee University on a part-time basis through his work.

Demie’s Story

After leaving school Demie Carr studied Beauty Therapy for three years at Dundee and Angus College.

“The college was the best platform for me between high school and university. I didn’t feel confident enough to go to university but I still wanted to continue with my education. The main thing the college gave me over the years was the encouragement to push myself and go beyond my comfort zone both in a personal and academic sense.”

Demie decided to change career path and studied HND Administration and IT at college then a BA (Hons) Business and Human Resource Management at Abertay University.

“In my time at university, I was presented with the Principal's Award for Employability, an award for outstanding academic performance and also represented the university at the Scottish Parliament."

Madalina’s Story

Madalina Ormenisan came to the UK from Romania and worked as an au pair to help improve her English language skills.

“I applied to study for an HNC in Events Management at Dundee and Angus College where I gained some work experience from the Events Executive Team at the Apex Hotel. I also had the chance to organise a Red Nose Day event within the Wellgate Shopping Centre which allowed us to come together as a class to arrange various small events to raise money for the charity.”

Madalina then studied for an HND in Administration and IT.

“The course focussed on learning how to use the Microsoft Office suite at an advanced level, how to manage people and organisations, basic finance and other related modules. I was offered the opportunity to do volunteering for the School of Medicine at the University of Dundee which helped boosting my employability skills."

Madalina then studied for a BA (Hons) in Business Management at Abertay University.

“This enabled me to further develop the skills and knowledge I learned in college. I was selected for the Saltire Scholar Internship Programme through which I had the opportunity to intern with GlaxoSmithKline, one of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the world.”
