Countdown is on…

The new academic year is just around the corner and it is almost time to print out boarding passes, coach tickets, or railcards and have them ready for departure a la Manchester. I have just finished the ninth week of my internship, and I have two weeks to go before I’ll head back up north. After weeks of morning rush-torture, early 9ams, and forcing down large amounts of Starbucks’s Double Espresso-cans, I feel that I have really touched on the life of a City-worker.

I can really see myself working in London after graduation. People I’ve spoken with have had mixed views, and I guess it is really up to the person himself to decide whether to embrace the stress; being pushed around on pavements and platforms, and having to jam into a small room or studio in order to get by. But the city does offer a lot and there is always something going on, even on Sundays.

Apart from having spent most of my summer in London, I managed to get some vacation before the internship started; I spent one week back home with my family in Sweden, and one week in Marbella, Spain. I do count down the days till I finish, as I’m planning on squeezing out the last bit of heat this summer has to offer and travel somewhere in Europe (wherever Ryanair takes me!) before my final year starts. I will be Peer Mentoring this year and I hope my experience will help my mentees to get a good start in their uni-lives.

The best thing about studying at Alliance MBS is not its international reputation - it's meeting those who build it!
