I'm Yanan Li and I'm from China, I'm doing International Management at Loughborough University.
I chose my course because I did my undergraduate degree in accounting and finance at Oxford Brookes University. I found that accounting was not really my thing but I took several management modules there that I really enjoyed. I chose Loughborough University because I really enjoy the campus here; I visited when I was in Oxford and I just loved it here.
My favourite module is Outsourcing and Offshoring. It's mainly about how to choose a vendor and outsource programmes and it was very interesting. We had to actually outsource a programme that we designed. We designed it in our teams and we outsourced it through a freelance website to a vendor. I think it's been quite helpful to get practical experience.
How do you think you’ve developed your employability at Loughborough? And what are you planning on doing afterwards?
I took a module about employability at Loughborough and it was mainly about how to develop your employability and what employers actually want from you. This was very helpful because I have got many ideas about what my strengths and weaknesses are. It has also been very helpful in supporting my future development because I am going to, in few years time, have my own business in China.
I would highly recommend this course if someone wants to work for a multi-national company. You gain a broad idea about how to manage employees from different countries, and what you should do to manage big company like a multi-national company.
I'm more like a quiet person but I do spend time with my friends in Loughborough Student Union; sometimes in the clubs or bars during the night and I find it a very relaxing atmosphere there. I enjoy the sport facilities in Loughborough University, especially the swimming pool, that is excellent - very amazing!
