Career Path: MSc Global Logistics, Operations & Supply Chain Management with Advanced Practice, Accor
Location: London, United Kingdom


If you took on a placement during your course how did you feel this helped you in your career/ with your studies?

In the course of my education, there was an option for advanced practice, which allowed me to work full-time in some field where I would confront real-life obstacles. I was able to manage this internship at one of the world's major companies entirely on my own. I worked as a supply chain coordinator with Accor for four months, and it was an incredible experience. Such kinds of opportunities help a student become more motivated and inspired and offer them an enormous head start in terms of establishing a career. By following the internship, a student can secure a permanent position in that organisation.

What was the best thing about your course?Asif Azad

The most enjoyable element of my degree was when students from every department were brought to a two-day residential programme. It was an unforgettable experience for me.
