Only just the beginning

We just finished our last Module 4 and the main word I can find is Inspiration. Every time I come back from Oxford I feel great inspiration for achieving, experiencing and, the most important, contributing into live, business and studies.

What do you learn in Oxford?

In Oxford I have learnt that I am not the most accomplished person in the room; and that being not the most accomplished person in the room is in effect a good thing. I have seen my class mates: brilliantly articulating thoughts, keeping a low profile and letting other people shine, making sacrifices to the […]

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.

Unforgettable

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 […]

The beginning of a riveting journey…

It’s been a week now since I left Oxford and got back to my busy work schedule. It’s still hard to believe that our first module on the Oxford Diploma in Global Business has ended. Strategy in practice I had to write a few words as I was and I still am very much impressed by […]

Why the unique social foundations make the Oxford Diploma in Global Business an ...

My working life as a public policy expert who straddles public and private consultancy as well as digital publishing involves a lot of writing so I’m generally reluctant to take on any more.
