What are you studying/doing for your career at the moment and how do you feel your time at STC helped you get to where you are now?

I am currently in my second year of studying Business at STC Higher Education. Before commencing with the course, I was unsure of what education path I was going to take in order to pursue a career in the future. However, one meeting with the Director of STC is all it took to convince me that the Business Degree Pathway they offered was meant for me.

Throughout my time at STC, the students have been provided with individual attention. With that being said, at STC you are not just a number. This specialised attention has allowed me to receive the assistance I required and has helped me develop skills and knowledge relevant to my studies.

In addition, the lecturers at STC have played an important role in helping me get to where I am at right now. Each lecturer is eager to ensure that all students are keeping up with the topics each module has to offer. Furthermore, they reassure that students are working at their full potential by providing us with real-life business-related scenarios which will be useful to us later on in our careers.

Finally, the structure of the course is what is most helpful to students at STC. At the beginning of the academic year, we are provided with a schedule of all lectures that will be held throughout the year. This convenience has helped me plan out my studies from day one; which has therefore reduced the unnecessary stress and anxiety most students would experience when trying to balance their duties on and off camp.

Would you recommend STC to students considering a career in computing and business, if yes, why?

I would definitely recommend STC to other students. Prior to studying at STC Higher Education, I had little to no knowledge on Business studies; Nonetheless, I was able to grasp the different ideologies that are highlighted in each module of the course.

The course has provided me with the opportunity to understand managerial systems and their effect on business organisations, as well as the opportunity to develop my digital literacy skills through the use of various software applications used in the business world.

What position do you see yourself in the next 5 years?

In the next five years, I hope to take further my knowledge, abilities, and skills by pursuing my master’s degree in luxury brand management and marketing.
