I chose to study Commerce for numerous reasons. The course offered a broad range of exciting opportunities, one of which was the ability to spend a month studying at a Summer School in Norway! Also, the incomparable facilities of the Quinn School, such as the collaboration room, has enabled me to participate in dynamic teamwork, where, by focusing on applying the knowledge, we learned to solve real world business problems. What I really value about Commerce is the ability to go on an internship placement which gives me a deeper insight into future careers and will allow me to put my skills in to practice!”
