Graduate Profile
Xuanang Lv, Assistant Technical Manager, Kerry Group. Choosing Ireland as the location for my postgraduate studies meant I could use my English and have the opportunity to interact with people from all over the world. I chose UCD due to its top university ranking in Technology and Science and because its business graduate school is fantastic. I particularly liked the modern UCD campus, however, the highlight of my year at UCD was when my team won a case study competition sponsored by Deloitte and when I competed in the MIT Operation Simulation contest with two other Irish classmates. I have now secured an operation position in Shanghai as part of the Kerry Group graduate programme. The masters perfectly prepared me for my chosen career path.
