I currently work as a Senior Business Analyst with Willis Towers Watson where I am managing process improvements, eliminating waste (Lean Management) and rolling out software to help this process.
One of my proudest moments was when I led the implementation of an online facilities software for a business unit and it went live and worked according to plan with minimal errors. This software met the expectation of the users especially after they partook in User Acceptance Testing of the product.
Choosing Imperial and the Global Online MBA
I decided to study an MBA in order to accelerate my career and hone other skills I may have such as leadership, decision making and stakeholder management.
The choice of Imperial was an easy one and there are many reasons I chose Imperial out of so many other schools that I had researched, some of which are:
- the high ranking on different tables
- the fact that Imperial is a Triple Crown accredited Business School
- Imperial offers the Global Online MBA which provides ease of learning
- The Imperial brand is a door opener at home and abroad
The Global Online MBA is definitely unique in the sense that all learning and interaction including submission of course work and networking is done virtually and not only does it work, it works well!
Imperial is unique because it bridges the gap between business and technology and brings it all together in a seamless fashion.
Experiences of the Global Online MBA so far
I have learnt things that have been rewarding so far on the programme as I find that I am able to apply such principles immediately either at work or in my personal life and that is very useful.
The most challenging part for me so far is not having face-to-face tutor access but that is easily overcome by the interaction we have with them on The Hub.
I liked the fact that we had to spend one week on campus for the induction and I found it made the programme real to me and provided the opportunity to meet some lecturers and members of my cohort which was a very important aspect; it made communication with colleagues much easier afterwards.
I have heard good things about the Innovation, Entrepreneurship & Design project from students in the previous year’s cohort. It also affords us another opportunity to all meet on campus again.
