Full steam ahead…

End of module four of the Diploma in Strategy and Innovation, as we learnt, paved the way for newer beginnings. The fact that we all have been through a few exams and 4 modules seems unreal. My thoughts about this programme at the beginning of these modules were quite different to what they are at […]

Back to School

I recall the day when I sat my last undergraduate exam at Harvard. I heaved a huge sigh of relief; the thought of not having to take another 4-hour exam again was pure joy. That was 9 years ago. I have since crossed the pond, married a European, and have accumulated some industry experience in […]

Dip OL Module 3

The third module for the Diploma in Organisational Leadership addressed the topics of organisational complexity and change. The excellent duo of Tim Morris and Namrata Malhotra were our faculty for the module, and once again I felt immensely privileged to be exposed to their depth of knowledge and experience on the subject matter. Both Tim […]

Traditional education

How do you look back on your education? What do you remember? Well, when I look back on my mine, which I received in Ukraine, where I attended a grammar school, I can describe it as a traditional education. There were strict rules including wearing a formal school uniform and we were only permitted to […]

An attempt to crank the mental gears before the exam.

It’s 5:30am.  My alarm is buzzing harshly. This cannot be right. It’s Sunday. Clearly, I’ve forgotten to turn my alarm to its “weekday only” setting. Only I haven’t forgotten. No, I begrudgingly admit to myself, this isn’t a mistake. I set the alarm on purpose.  We are having our first Skype call among the 2015 […]

…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 […]

Exam stress

After completing a very motivating and inspiring first module for the Diploma in Organisational Leadership, it is time to go home and relax, but only for a short time.

An intense week of hard work among an outstanding set of classmates with very challenging professors, and all of that on an unique place. That’s the summary of what module 2 on the Oxford Diploma in Global Business was to me. As a business leader of a medium size Brazilian industrial group my goal was […]
