Meet Minhaz, Marketing Analyst for AO

Hi, my name is Minhaz and currently work as a Marketing Analyst within the Commercial department at AO. I studied Mathematics at the Manchester Metropolitan University where I thoroughly enjoyed the course and my time at university.


I was a ‘first generation’ student (which simply means the first to go to university in my family) and can say it’s the best thing I have done – the course enabled me to pursue my interests in numbers and has provided the foundations to my analytics career to date.

Minhaz's Tips...

  • 1

    There are many opportunities at university to understand exactly what areas you are strong in or could purse as a career after university especially when studying Mathematics, therefore choosing the correct modules are vital!

  • 2

    It is easy to become distracted when at University and finding the balance between studies and out of study life is key to being successful in your degree.

  • 3

    Mathematics is a broad field and you simply cannot stop learning, further reading outside of lectures is just as important as being in the lectures themselves.
