Yaman Islim

Syrian student and Durham University Business School graduate

Yaman is a recent MSc Finance graduate from Durham University Business School and a Chevening Scholar from Aleppo, Syria. Though young, he has already experienced life and worked in three very different countries, building a network of friends and colleagues all over the globe.

Even though he loves his home town, he had to abandon his family and friends in 2012 but has made the most of the situation by obtaining two master degrees and working in a multi-million dollar international development programme.
