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 […]

Sharing is caring

I submitted my Final Integrative Assignment (FIA) for the Diploma in Financial Strategy at Saïd Business School in January and I thought “I’m done!” I had finished it! The first month after the program I was enjoying some “free time”, recovering from the 2018 juggle of work, travelling and the school schedule, but I was […]

Where were you when you were accepted into Oxford?

I will always remember where I was when I decided to apply to study at Oxford, a bit like remembering what you were doing when the world lost Princess Diana or anyone else of remarkable position and calibre- those significant times in your life when something happens and changes you or your thinking in a […]

When thinking about a subject for my first blog I was inspired by a conversation with a friend of mine who I met on the Post Graduate Diploma in Organisational Leadership at the University of Oxford. This person is someone I look up to a great deal, he’s a real high flyer working for one […]

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 […]

Funded by Strategy

Admittedly I have long loved ‘Strategy’. Though I had never formally studied the subject; I was drawn to its wisdom and economics.

My journey to Oxford University seemed to have begun even before I knew it!! A couple of summers ago, I was visiting Oxford, it was a Sunday and as we walked along I saw a college with a huge courtyard. When I attempted to go in I was stopped and told no one can enter […]

At Oxford with Superheroes

Aristotle said that courage is the virtue that enables all other virtues, and as an entrepreneur, it is important to show a lot of courage but to balance it with temperance. At the age of 24, I incorporated my first business, EGV Recruitment, which was active in medical recruitment. We expanded it internationally after one […]

The Oxford Experience – DipSI Module 1

“Oxford is like a drug; people get addicted and find reasons to keep coming back.” The professor says. The Oxford experience cannot be fully described in words alone. You have to go there to fully grasp it. The school’s values including Respect, Excellence and Collaboration truly resonates, not just within the university but through the […]
