Madhushiya Nadeson

What are you studying at ACBT?

I completed by Double Major in Marketing and Management in June 2015.

What are your hobbies?

I enjoy reading books and article that interest and inspire me, spending time with friends and of course music. Bit of travelling whenever I can.

Are you currently working? If yes, how would you balance work and studies?

Yes I am. Work while I work, study while I study and sleep when I sleep?
I make sure NEVER to miss my sleep. When I study I give it my 100% even if time is limited compared to those days of only studying and not working. Sure it’s difficult to balance it out, but it all comes down to my priorities and what I truly want. Sacrifices happen during the process and I’d like to believe and remind myself all the time “suffer now and enjoy later, than vice versa”. And when I get my free time, I do make it a point to enjoy. So I guess it all comes down to balance?

Plans for the future?

To NOT settle down for anything that may seem comfortable!!!!! :D
I’m planning on starting MBA soon and complete the remaining few units in ACCA as well. Meanwhile, I also plan on staying fit and happy. Maybe a bit of Yoga and lots of travelling is in my plan.

How the studies at ACBT have helped you?

Final year I would say was the most challenging and productive year at ACBT for me. Not only did I learn a lot of things academically, but it also played a significant role in helping me identify myself and to actually think about my goals and interests. In addition, the lecturers were beyond helpful and amazing at what they were doing. Group work/individual assignments, reports and presentations allowed me to follow a more practical approach to my studies than just reading books and/or listening to the lecturers and then only go home to forget everything.

Favorite thing about studying at ACBT?

Friends & Memories made.

How would you describe this institution to someone who is visiting for the first time?

Nice place! Make use of it.
However, I believe end of the day it all comes down to the person despite how amazing any place could be? Only if you allow yourself to enjoy every bit it gives you and use what it provides in the right way will you get a more true experience out of it. I did and I could have enjoyed better. Maybe you should give yourself and the place a better chance?

I am currently working in our family business. I also recently got married, so it’s pivotal I balance work, studies and my personal life. So far I’ve managed to integrate all three aspects together.

Luckily she finds business interesting and loves to be a part of these discussions.
