Samantha Kad Bay Rodriguez
Course: BSc Business Management
What were you doing before you came to study at City?
I was doing my foundation year in Business and Economics with Accounting at INTO City, which really helped me to gain a broad understanding about the core modules I am studying now, during my first year.
Why did you decide to apply to study at City, University of London?
Before I graduated from high school, I knew I wanted to study something related to management. My research narrowed down to the best business schools in London. That was when I found out about the Business School (formerly Cass). After comparing different universities, I realised City really had what I was looking for, such as recognition, diversity in backgrounds and cultures, a wide selection of modules and a convenient location.
What is your favourite thing about studying at City?
My favourite thing is the modules. I am fascinated about how the subjects change each semester but remain connected to the course module. The content of modules that City provides are filled with useful information that I know I will apply anytime, soon in my professional field, daily.
What kind of things are you involved in outside of your course?
I am a Marketing Student Ambassador, providing prospective students with useful information about the course they are interested in and life at City. I am also part of a hospitality company, where I work on a part-time basis.
What do you plan to do after you graduate?
I have several options in my mind. I would like to do a master’s in a course related to international business, or a further study in psychology and sociology, which I have been intrigued in for a while now. I would also like stay in London and apply for jobs that might be suitable to my academic field.
What would be your top tip for our applicants?
Enjoy the university life while it lasts and remember that life pass by and when we least expected we are with our feet outside the door, stepping into the next big chapter in our lives. Whatever you are meant to do, have in mind that passion is key for you to keep up and overcome any obstacles in the way.
