The Name a Seat series is a collection of stories to celebrate our campaign to name a seat in the Tung Auditorium at the heart of the new Yoko Ono Lennon Centre. This week, we spoke to alumnus Adebisi Adediji (MSc Corporate Finance 2014) who shared the impact of studying at the University of Liverpool and why he chose to support this project.

Tell us about your experience of studying at the University of Liverpool

My study at the University of Liverpool has made a significant impact on my life and I’ll always be proud and glad to be part of the School’s projects. The MSc Corporate Finance qualification changed the game and opened new doors for me after graduation in 2014. Though I worked on a full-time basis in an organisation, I was engaged by the National Open University of Nigeria to serve as a Project Supervisor for Diploma and Undergraduate Students on a part-time basis. The qualification also positioned me to facilitate training and consult for a number of organisations.

What inspired you to name a seat?

I have benefited immensely through the alumni network, as I have established good relationships with some alumni who have helped in no little way to support my personal programmes, dreams and aspirations. No doubt, my study at the University of Liverpool has left me with many sweet memories, enhanced my analytical ability, and caused a radical transfiguration of my identity. So, I am most pleased to lend support to the Tung Auditorium project.


The Tung Auditorium will be located at heart of the Yoko Ono Lennon Centre and will seat 400 with space for a 70-piece orchestra. To celebrate this exciting new development on campus, alumni and supporters of the University are invited to play a leading role in this project. Naming a seat is not only a personal way to leave your mark on the University but it will support us in realising our goal to enable students to continue to pursue their artistic and academic dreams.
