Love and a Long Journey to Oxford

What would it be like to study in one of the best schools in the world? To be taught by world-renowned experts? To rub minds with some of the best and brightest students? Those questions always haunt me. But not anymore. In 2016, I had the good fortune of being admitted into the postgraduate masters […]

The not so secret ingredient

It’s 07:30 on a crisp February Wednesday. The sun is rising across the Cotswolds, accentuating the mystical aura of the mist shrouding the English countryside; as I watch the farmland and picturesque village churches pass me by as my train makes its way towards Oxford, I can’t help but think about the many routes of […]

The Oxford international airport

Ten years after last setting foot in a university amphitheater, I decided to go back for a Diploma in Strategy and Innovation. During these ten years I have been in and out corporate coaching and training sessions, seminars and online learning modules (MOOCs). While all these experiences and learnings have got me places in one […]

My experience at Oxford during the first module is an unforgettable one. At Saïd Business School, the professors, the staff, the facilities and the Global Business programme are truly world-class. Everything was well put together to ensure that we were looked after and that we had access to everything we needed. Professionalism, attentiveness, efficiency and […]

My first Oxford experience

So, when you dish out a big wad of your own cash to further your education 15 years into your career, you expect big things. And if that wad of cash goes to the world’s #1 university, then those expectations are sky high. At the end of my first module, boy were those expectations met! […]

Back to school…

It’s been a few days being back home after Module 1 and I should admit it started to sink in… “I am a student of Oxford!” You may think that this realization comes when you get an offer letter from the School, or when you wire your payment, or when you book your first accommodation […]

The Oxford Experience

In the United States we have a number of institutions of higher learning, some that have very deep roots and heritages like Harvard, Princeton, and Yale.  However, when you really think about educational institutions with very deep roots and heritages none compares to the University of Oxford.  As you walk by historic colleges and soak […]

An enthralling adventure in the land of tea and scones

Here I am, revising for my final examination at Oxford on an asphalt covered rooftop amidst the skyscrapers of upper Manhattan, enjoying the waning days of the summer heat wave before winter casts its dark veil of frost over us. As I churn through Clockspeed: Winning Industry Control in the Age of Temporary Advantage, my […]

Reflecting Back

Everyone in the room, starting to wrap up their laptops, folder, packing bags, rushing towards the exit doors, waving goodbyes walking out of Oxford Saïd and off to their destinations. Only when the lights turned off, is when I realised how precious these days were that shaped module 3.  Every 6th week getting ready, packing bags, […]

Module 3

Nothing beats summer in Oxford, or Cambridge for that matter (both are equally beautiful, and though I am partial to Oxford, I was pretty enamored with Cambridge…the only way to tell them apart is by the vast number of scurrying bicycles! Bicycles are actually so prominent that streets are closed to drivers (except on Sundays). […]
