“For my internship I went to Abaca, a SME located in Carmarthenshire. The company specializes in making luxury organic bed mattresses and I initially thought what I am going to do at mattress manufacturer. My internship began and on the first day I realized it is a whole business that is based on the concepts of niche marketing and high standards o business ethics, because the raw material they used was 100% organic. I took corporate social responsibility & business ethics as one of my optional modules and most of the concepts of the module were practised by this company. It was a great experience to learn how a small but successful SME applies most of the theoretical concepts of MBA.”
