“One of the reasons I chose Aston University is the fantastic opportunities it gives you for the placement year. I was lucky enough to spend my placement year with IBM. After IBM, I went on to do the future leadership graduate scheme at Nissan. This then led me to go down the finance route and here I am today.”
