My name is Rahbaan Khan and I am a final year student Marketing Management at Manchester Metropolitan University. I am due to graduate in July and being the first to do so in my immediate family and am very excited to do so. I grew up in Bury which is in the Greater Manchester area, and decided to go to MMU because of it’s global reputation in business marketing.
I enrolled at MMU in 2010 and found marketing an excellent outlet for my creative and innovative personality. I spent the summer of my second year at MMU at JD sports as a social media intern and which taught me the practical side of marketing in the real working environment. As an undergrad I volunteered on the Gift giving project and found this a very interesting study. We were put in charge of hosting a fundraising fashion event which required all of the marketing and promotion skills that had been picked up in the last two years. I am now undergoing a summer internship with Dr Amna Khan developing the gift giving project, conducting and transcribing interviews and also planning an event for 60,000 people in the summer of 2015.
