Business with Finance and Economics - Gillian McEllin
A Castlebar, County Mayo native, Gillian is now working at Banc Nationale De Paris in Parkmore Business Estate in Galway.
Researching colleges was easy, with GMIT Castlebar being in Gillian's back garden. After an open day visit there, Gillian discovered some information on courses available at the Galway campus. In 2008 she enrolled in the Bachelor of Business in Economics and Finance.
"I really enjoyed my time at GMIT. I loved learning about the different financial instruments and how they play a part in the financial world. I also loved taking part in the fantasy budget. This was a highlight for me. It really made me stop and thing about policies and how this affects our country and our pockets".
Gillian kept her head in the books while in college, leaving little room for joining clubs and societies and is now working at BNP. She is excited about the opportunities she has to further her career and is looking forward to climbing the corporate ladder. BNP is at an exciting stage, growing contentedly, and Gillian is happy to be part of that growth.
