Sophia Zhang
MSc Business with Marketing (2020 - 2021)

My time at Warwick Business School was an extraordinary journey through cultures and connections. The kaleidoscope of backgrounds and cultures I encountered enriched my experience. WBS' commitment to group work and collaboration added an exciting dimension to my projects, as I navigated my course through diverse perspectives.

Among the many highlights of my Warwick experience, the student community stands out prominently. As a previous Warwick undergraduate, I was already part of the Warwick Squash team and had participated in various other societies and events, including ABACUS (Association of British and Chinese University Students).

During my year at WBS, I broadened my horizons by joining additional societies like Warwick GDMS (Graphic Design and Marketing Society) and SolidariTee, a student-led charity advocating for refugee and asylum seeker rights. The wealth of societies and sports clubs at Warwick is a treasure trove. I wholeheartedly recommend engaging with them to make the most of the Warwick experience.

In addition to their exemplary Careers Service, CareersPlus, WBS offers a multitude of events to assist with job applications. The WBS-specific P&G Business Case Challenge is just one of the many remarkable opportunities. I particularly appreciated the flexibility in team allocation and the option to select my teammates, especially in the first semester. The P&G Challenge was an eye-opener to the world of P&G and the broader FMCG industry. It also provided invaluable experience in virtual team collaboration and a chance to connect with fellow students.
