Welcome all allow me to take you through a journey from University of Salford MBA all the way through to working at Debt Solution Centre Limited, ‘oh’ and all the bits in between.

Who am I?

Well I’m a graduate in BSc (Hons) Biomedical Science from the University of Salford, currently working at Debt Solution Centre Limited. Avid follower/supporter of Liverpool FC and a keen traveller.

22 years of age I graduated from University of Salford in Biomedical Science in 2012. But I decided to explore other avenues and get a degree in business. Shortly after graduation I decided to pursue an MBA at the University of Salford starting September 2013 at the age of 23.


Salford MBA International Trip to Brazil

In May of this year, the Salford MBA students were given the opportunity to take part in an MBA International Trip. The choices provided were Almeria in Spain, Hong Kong or Brazil. The latter destination was most appealing to me, not just because of the impending World Cup, but because as an emerging market there are great business opportunities.

With that said, I eagerly submitted my choice and hoped for the best!

Thankfully, I was successful and on Sunday 11th May at 6:05am, in the early hours of the morning, my MBA cohort eagerly boarded a plane at Manchester Airport and left for Brazil.

After many hours in the air, we finally touched down in Sao Paulo at 17:10pm. Excited, we all disembarked the plane before quickly finding ourselves stuck in a two hour queue at immigration (Painful is the only word to describe it!). However, this was not enough to dampen our spirits and once out of the airport, we climbed aboard our coach and set sail for the hotel.

So, the big question is, what did we get up to whilst on our visit?
