Besides the academic experience that I’ve acquired during my studies, I’ve also acquired other important skills. In the Corporate Finance and International Corporate Governance modules, I was chosen to be the team leader for the group projects. This role has helped me develop and enhance my interpersonal and professional skills by organizing, communicating, and interacting with the group members to successfully complete the tasks and meet the deadlines. The knowledge I acquired by working on these projects and modules has massively boosted my confidence and enhanced my interpersonal skills.Cenk Agul, Student
