Student profile: Beverly Darko, Ghana

Beverly DarkoIn the fourth term of my MBA, I undertook an internship in the Human Resources department of a student housing association. During my internship, I worked on a management report (my main project) as well as carrying out a range of office-based tasks and meeting with stakeholders. I believe that the internship opportunity offered at Coventry University London Campus is extremely beneficial. Working in an office environment and interacting with the employees on a daily basis helped me develop professional skills that cannot be taught using theoretical assignments or by observing an organisation from the outside.

My management report centred on the company attaining accreditation from Investor in People and Sunday Times Companies. The main goal was to find out and recommend what the organisation needed to do to gain the accreditation.

The internship has been a great learning experience. I worked on two projects simultaneously because the company wanted to get accreditation from two different professional bodies. The projects have helped me put into practice what I had learnt in the classroom. The entire business environment created at Coventry University London Campus involves working in diverse teams, with people from a wide range of backgrounds. Moreover, the practical assignments at the London Campus (management reports, case studies, presentations, debates, etc.) really helped me prepare for my internship. I was almost done with my research project by the eighth week because I was so used to collecting data, doing practical research and working both in teams and independently. I think that the theoretical and practical components of my MBA have really prepared me for future employment.
