About the position

I am relatively new to the company but we work on projects with Coca Cola being one of our biggest clients. We run research projects throughout Africa and the world. We also create questionnaires and analyse data from respondents. We then chart our findings and present the results to our clients.

Why did you choose the qualification you studied?

I chose the broad field of finance as I was very interested in the sector. The volatility of the macro environment is what drives the market and its large corporate companies. It was interesting to understand the market drivers as well as learn about corporate finance, investing and banking.

What are your future career plans?

I intend working hard in order to secure a prominent position one day.

What was the one thing that stood out the most for you about Varsity College?

The facilities are second to none and the class environment is great to be a part of. The timetable was also very flexible which allowed me time to find part time employment. All in all it is a great institution to be associated with.
