My new reality – The Diploma in Global Business

I could not help but think, as I circled the desks of the Radcliffe Camera to find a free study spot, of those who came before me.  What would I give for some of Tolkien’s creativity, the prescience of Aldous Huxley, the courage of Gertrude Bell, or Oscar Wilde’s wit? Was it enough that I […]

Oxford – The Journey Continues

Returning to Oxford for Module 2 was filled with anxiety and mystery unlike my initial journey.  My first sojourn to Oxford was filled with excitement and a sense of accomplishment of having been accepted to this prestigious institution.  I now faced the initial assessment after having experienced Module 1 and spending five short weeks at […]

The Oxford Experience

We are not in it for the grades, or are we? I am a student at the Saïd Business School at the Diploma in Global Business programme. I am also many other things, but it is irrelevant from this blog’s point of view. When you enter the gates of the University of Oxford as a […]

My ‘Real’ Global Experience at Oxford

Having worked with global luxury brands for years now, I was looking for an opportunity to broaden my knowledge in business and explore what is happening outside of the industry I have been so familiar with. The complexity of conducting business on a global scale has always fascinated me. I wanted a platform to deepen […]
