Studying MSc Innovation, Entrepreneurship and Management

Why did you choose to study MSc Innovation, Entrepreneurship and Management, and why specifically at Imperial College Business School?

Because I have always wanted to own a business and create jobs with innovative products. Imperial College offers the programme for that for people without business degree.

What is your fondest memory from your time at the Business School? / What do you miss most from your days at the Business School?

The great team that I have been working with. They also inspired me to pursue entrepreneurial journey and created the product together.

Career & Professional Development

How has the Business School helped develop your career?

Business School inspired and gave me the opportunity, resources and the great team to me to pursue my start-up.

What do you enjoy most about your work and what are the main challenges that you face? 

Working with the team is the greatest moment, also when you get to present it to the cohort. However, the highly weighted exams were big obstacle when you need to balance and manage time well among courseworks, exams and businesses.

The alumni network

How do you stay connected with others from your Business School alumni network?

LinkedIn and Facebook. Cohort = Facebook.

In what way is remaining connected to your alumni network important to you?

To aid and accelerate my business. Get to know the people who are capable, by resources and expertise, to help fulfil my business.
