Graduate with a passion for international business


Lisa Stafford, whose degree from Queen’s Management School has seen her travel to several cities in China, France and Belgium, graduates from Queen’s today having secured a graduate job with the British Council in China for summer 2016.

Graduating today in International Business with French, Lisa previously won a Student Recognition award at Queen’s thanks to her involvement in numerous business programs, including Innovator, Belfast Enterprise Academy, Make it to Market and Dragons’ Den.

She has also been an active member of the Queen’s University Officer Training Corps since her first year at the University, winning two national military competitions and representing OTC at ceremonial events.

Queen’s has links with more than 200 international universities and partner organisations, enabling Lisa said: “Throughout my time at Queen’s, I have sought to internationalise my university experience as much as possible. I now plan on learning more about the Chinese culture, language and building up knowledge on how to do business effectively in China.”

Lisa has spent a year working as an au pair in Paris, completed the Brussels Study Tour and worked in Madrid for two months. In her second year, she worked at Disneyland Paris, before commencing her placement at HEC Paris, during which she participated in the Paris marathon.

Her placement year gave Lisa a passion for international business and she is now pursuing a career in international consultancy, advising businesses on venturing abroad to developing countries such as China and India.
