Apart from my classmates What was an important part of Oxford Sayed The MBA programming that inspired you to choose this business school and why was it so important to you? Saïd is the only high-ranking international business school with a deliberate focus on the African Continent through recruitment and program offerings. After getting an MBA, my plan was to always return to Africa and incorporate what I learned into the development of Africa. Therefore, an international program focused on Africa was of paramount importance in my decision making.

What is the most “Oxford” you have ever been to as a full-time MBA student? Walk past Door to Narnia I’m on my way to class every day.This door is believed to be the inspiration for CS Lewis, the entrance to the magical world of the Narnia story in a seven-part series. The story of Narnia. Many mornings I have been tempted to open it in anticipation of the magical world of snow on the other side.

Oxford is known as the place where the world collides, whether in the classroom or in the dining room. What was the most interesting interaction you’ve ever had as an Oxford MBA student? Sitting in our common room at Queens College. One side of me happens to be an 18-year-old Master of Physics student, and the other side is a Master of Classical Language student who is a Grammy-nominated artist.

Please explain the greatest achievements in your career so far. As a financial manager, we help build real estate funds in South Africa while prioritizing the growth of service providers for small businesses.

Please explain your greatest achievements as an MBA student so far. Immerse yourself in a wider university, not just Business Schoo, l. This is due to building relationships with my college members and being part of the college cheerleader team.

Which other MBA program did you apply for? none. It didn’t make sense to apply for another international program because it wasn’t focused on Africa.

What was the biggest epiphany you’ve gained about yourself and the world since you started the MBA program? There is a quote from an MBA colleague who introduced me to me, “Don’t say the sky is the limit when there are footprints on the moon.” From this experience, the prospects for solutions to major problems in the world are far broader than I had imagined, and the implementation of those solutions is absolutely possible at the level of talented young people around the world. I found out. What we need is an opportunity to show the world what we can do.
