The start of my Oxonian journey

One of the scariest and nerve-wracking events for a 40-year old lady, apart from being aware that I hit 40 and also that I’m disclosing it here, and being a mother to a teen, a wannabe teen (hubby) and a puppy entering his teens, is getting back to studies!! Of course, you know that when […]

The Moocs are taking over… or are they?

After a hiatus of around 5 years I decided to study again. My last certification was CIA (not the investigative kind, the audit kind). I breezed through it if I may say so myself. It was in essence the kind of certification that in today’s world would be considered redundant. It reinforced skills that I […]

From Oxford to the World: a simple equation…

It all began after a visit to Oxford as a tourist three years ago. During this tour, I was impressed by the beauty of this city; which encompasses all its activities around its university, its colleges and all students and professors.

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 […]

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 […]

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! […]

…That’s inspirational

For me, the Diploma of Organisational Leadership has been inspirational.  The inspiration has come from multiple sources, and, often, from places that I had not anticipated. When you come to Oxford you expect to be inspired by brilliant minds.  And when it happens and you interact with a person whose intellect is razor sharp, it […]

Three weeks last summer….

Last year I attended the Said Business School’s Advanced Management and Leadership Program (OAMLP).  The course was a three week residential program (at Egrove Park, not the main business school) that did three things: refreshed and updated my business skills (broad highlights of MBA subjects); assessed my leadership style (via 360 degree feedback, plus some […]
