Rishi Tandon's story
MBA Global Business 2011-2012
Rishi Tandon joined Coventry University London in 2011, to study for his MBA in Global Business. As one of the first students to step through our doors, we spoke to Rishi to gain some insight into what it was that made his time as a student here so special.
“It’s been almost a decade since I joined Coventry University London! The course really appealed to me, because I wanted a proper management experience in the heart of London. Studying in the heart of the financial district allows you to see yourself as an executive or a manager, even when you have just started your course.
“I liked the seriousness of the classes, and interacting with people with different, yet believable, visions made each class a lot more interesting. Everyone felt important and came with a purpose and never hesitated to share their knowledge with colleagues. Our faculty was extremely open to suggestions from students from various parts of the world, and ensured that they felt understood. Not even once did I feel like an outsider.
“My personal highlight of my time at Coventry University London was when I scored highest in the Sustainable Business Strategy module. It was great to see my hard work appreciated and celebrated. One of the best things about Coventry University London is how it has helped me to progress in my career. The course helped me to understand the logical aspect of every move you make in business: point, evidence and evaluate.
“After graduating from Coventry University London in January 2012, I started my very first job as a surveyor at an energy company, working my way up to becoming a Business Development Manager and heading up the London region for an e-cigarettes company until September 2015. Today, I am the Director of Evershine Business Ventures Private Limited, a complete water and waste management company dealing in treatment of waste water and purification of raw water for drinking purposes. I have had an amazing career so far, for which I am thankful to Coventry University London.
“My advice to prospective students who are considering studying at Coventry University London would be to enter with an open mind from day one. Focus on all the modules and don’t miss out on your attendance! Make the most of your time at Coventry University London in order to graduate with unique management talents. Go and be a part of this experience to change your life for good and to make the world a better place.”
