Catching up with alumni in Turkey
Last weekend I was in Turkey where I met Mehmet Umut Bakir, a UCLan alumnus. Umut, from Istanbul, studied MSc International Investment and Finance at UCLan, graduating in 2010. Now, he has returned to his home town to purse a PhD in Economics at Istanbul Bilgi University. He’s also working as a webmanager at LG Turkey so I was delighted such a busy man had time to reminisce with me about his time at UCLan and meet with other UK graduates, especially on a Saturday morning! It is always great to see what our alumni go on to achieve. Umut also signed the Guild Scroll of Friendship to send best wishes to the people of Preston – the city he once called home!
