I was told about Middlesex University at the school I took my computer programming courses. With more research I found out Middlesex offered a course that had the perfect blend of Information Technology and Business that I was looking to study.
Information Technology and Business Information Systems. I was already a certified computer programmer and I wanted a business side to enable me to thrive on managing all the skills I had from a business perspective.
I enjoyed developing an augmented reality software all by myself. I lived a sense of fulfilment and completion with being able to achieve this. I also enjoyed the 'New Media' classes which offered me knowledge that I eventually used in developing my brand as a music producer.
The fondest memory would be during the summer, when we all hung out in front of MDX house. We played basketball, table tennis, had cold drinks and enjoyed the much needed sun in London. It was ever so refreshing.
Middlesex offers everything you need to achieve success if you're goal-driven. From tutors, to UniHelp, to libraries, to relaxation. Everything is focused on helping you succeed. I graduated with a First Class without having to break my back and burn candles at night. All the help I needed to achieve this was easily accessible to me as long as I decided to make use of it.
My course helped me a great deal. The 'New Media' classes taught me a lot about creating media, branding, and marketing. These were basically the methods I used in setting up the LORD SKY brand. Also, my knowledge in information technology and software creation enabled me to be a part of the development of the company 'Cab Hailing' in Lagos.
It helped that I had clear plans to continue in music creation after university. As soon as I graduated, I went right into creating my brand and marketing it through new media. In no time, I was moving up the ladder.
The defining career break was working with the top music artists in Nigeria. The recognition was vital in establishing my brand.
Never stop learning. Stay focused on your goals. Work hard and smart.
The most valuable skills in my career have been my ability to create, brand and market via new media. Another valuable skill has been my ability to offer consultancy to tech companies, and translation to programmers.
Middlesex is like a world-hub. People from almost every part of the world are found there however, you don't feel like you travelled internationally to study. It feels like you are home, with people from all over the world present.
