Paolina is studying BSc Economics.
Her particular areas of interest include marketing, macroeconomics, microeconomics, behavioural economics and human behaviour.
Paolina was first inspired to study Economics by her uncle.
Paolina believes the key to a successful business is a mixture of personal qualities, skills, knowledge, self-belief and ambition to achieve your goals.
After graduating, Paolina hopes to do Masters in a business-related subject.
Daniele is studying a BA (Hons) Accounting and Finance.
His particular areas of interest include Managerial Finance, Investment Appraisal, Management Accounting, Cost-budgeting, Budgeting and Financial Auditing.
Daniele was first inspired to study Accounting and Finance by a friend, who told him about the prospect of working with numbers to help growing businesses.
Daniele believes the key to a successful business is commitment, hard work and keeping customer needs first when making any business decision.
After graduating, Daniele hopes to land a graduate job in the finance division of the NHS, where he will be able to use his skills and knowledge to improve the services provided by the organisation and, therefore, help people. Daniele will also keep studying towards the Chartered Institution of Management Accounting (CIMA) qualification.
Salma is studying MSc International Finance.
Her particular areas of interest include investment finance, funds management and financial markets.
The choice of specialising in Finance was mainly driven by her interest in the financial world, the way it works, the challenges it presents and the risks that have to be taken every day.
Salma believes the key to a successful business is commitment, but also, and more importantly, setting clear and realistic objectives and working hard towards their achievement.
After graduating, Salma hopes to embark on a professional journey that will allow her to put into practice all the knowledge she has acquired during her time at university.
