Chapter Three: What’s meant to happen always does

The in-betweens

With the end of Module 10 last week came the end of the first year that I have been in the EMBA programme. Module 10 delivered a punch with the hurdle of a business finance exam, the exhilaration of doing the pitch for the entrepreneurship project with a stellar team, and the start of the […]

A Day in the Life of an EMBA Student

5:00 am: Woke up, got out of bed, and begrudgingly skipped breakfast in Keble College’s grand dining hall to jog two miles out to the Green Templeton boat house on the Thames. 6:00 am: Rowed for an hour with my fellow EMBA classmates as the sun came up over the tree line.   7:30 am: […]

Being part of a College is among the many unique facets of life in the EMBA programme, and as I have written before just one of the many communities you can get involved in.

A privilege to be a part of the larger Oxford family

Module four brought the EMBA-J17 cohort back to Oxford (we were abroad last module) – and for this I am quite thankful.  I am continually reminded that I am fortunate to be a part of this cohort and a part of the greater Oxford University family.  These two realities stand out at this very moment, […]
