A Master of Business Administration graduate has secured her 'dream job' thanks to her studies at DMU.
Temitope Fatuade believes the MBA she studied is the reason she is now working as a Business Analyst for the NHS.
Her degree included an Executive Company Project (ECP), which gives organisations a chance to benefit from the skills of master's students, whilst letting them gain work experience.
The 23-year-old said: "I don't think I would have got my dream job without DMU. My master's degree covered everything I needed to know about business because it was so practical."

ECP helps DMU grad construct perfect career
Business club launched by Leicester Castle Business School
Temitope studied an Accounting and Business Management undergraduate degree before deciding to carry on her studies at the university. She chose DMU because she felt the university offered her more than any other could.
She said: "The MBA and ECP helped me to stand out from other graduates as it gave me the chance to gain a range of skills and work with people from all backgrounds.
"The degree covered a range of different skills. I learnt about project management, was able to work on my people skills and also learnt about business creation. The course really helped to put me ahead of the rest."
The ECP offered in Temitope's degree is available across selected business master's courses, including the entire portfolio offered by Leicester Castle Business School, as an alternative to a traditional dissertation. Students take part in a three month project, with the option to extend it to six months.
Support is given to all students throughout the process and they are given help with CV writing, interview skills and psychometric tests.
She added: "The course helped me to realise that there is a lot out there for me. I was surrounded by like-minded people and it motivated me to see everyone around me working so hard."
Temitope has now been working for the NHS for three months and says she loves working in London.
