Graduate student profiles

Andy OlymbiouAndy Olymbiou

BA Accounting, 2006

After completing my degree, I went straight into the world of work for a mid-sized accountancy firm, based in the West End. My three years at Essex could not have prepared me better for this stage of my life. The course had specific elements aimed at helping progression in the accountancy field, and this has not only gained me exemptions from further exams but gave me a real head start with my work.

At Essex, the friendly environment of the Colchester Campus was the perfect place for me to develop, both academically and socially. The range of activities available was second to none finding time to study (which was mainly between playing football) was the biggest challenge! During my third year I competed in the IBM Business Challenge, and a group of students and I took part in a day of activities in London.

Essex Business School was really supportive and I would definitely recommend Essex to anyone thinking of applying to university.
