Choosing the Doctoral Programme at Imperial College Business School

As a very structured person, I felt the need to put some order to the bundle of knowledge and hands-on notions that I have acquired in my five years of consulting experience.

The opportunity of formal training will provide me with the clarity to make meaningful connections and allow me to utilise my consulting experience with confidence.

Research Environment

Having lived in London since 2005, I am aware of and value Imperial College’s reputation for excellence. I see the College’s legacy with engineering and healthcare as a perfect fit for me given my background in industrial engineering and recent engagements with blue chip healthcare companies.

I am learning to review information critically and to make connections, and I have access to a big pool of experts. Upon completion of the PhD programme, my aim is to continue to contribute to research, teach and also to work as a consultant in my areas of expertise.
