In 2009, two years before the civil war in Syria broke out, Nour Mouakke moved to the UK for the first time and to Durham to study his Masters in Marketing at the Business School. After graduating he went on to work for a company in the UK, but realised he wanted to be an entrepreneur.
Nour is glad he chose Durham for his masters degree due to its global name and the culture of the small university city.
In an interview with Poets & Quants, a leading global MBA business school media channel in the USA, Nour tells his story from moving to the UK to studying in Durham and from working for a company to starting his own business. He also gives advice about moving to another country to study and talks in-depth about his career and his future.
