As the Alumni Ambassador and Member of the Alumni Board at Anglia Ruskin University, I like to reach out to luxury brands, which want to connect with future talents. Harrods, the world-famous department store in London is a great example of how a luxury brand and Anglia Ruskin University cooperated.
Here is a testimony from Arkin Salih, Learning and Development Manager, Harrods:
"At Harrods, we like to push the boundaries and whenever we do something, we want it to be the best. We will try and think creatively and the thing that I liked about Anglia Ruskin after our initial meetings was that actually, I think they shared those same values.
The key thing I would credit Anglia Ruskin University with is their openness and their willingness to be innovative and think of new ideas. We wanted to create a world-class sales course and Anglia Ruskin was really open to exploring what this qualification could be."
