'My studies helped me by teaching me all I needed to know about business and how different businesses work/operate. I didn’t just learn about ‘how to go on holiday,’ I learnt how these travel companies run their businesses from all different levels and it made it clear for me to see I was interested in working in the Head Office side of things rather than front-facing.'
