A jolly good start to the EMBA programme

To ensure that I would feel refreshed before I would start the Oxford EMBA programme, I went on a 3-week holiday to Vietnam. I was fully aware that time will be scarce once I enrolled in the programme so this was the moment to take a break. As expected, time flew and before I knew […]

Marconi’s crystal and the cat’s whisker

I’m 10% happy that now, having completed the third last module of my Executive MBA at Oxford University, I only have four assignments to do. I’m 95% very sad, though, as the necessity of travelling to/from and being in Oxford for the past 16 months has become a habit it shall be hard to break. I […]

Oxford College Life

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. The Universities of Oxford, Cambridge, and Durham use such a unique college system, and for undergraduate and graduate students they are […]

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, […]

The “Red Pill” experience

“You take the blue pill, the story ends. You wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill, you stay in Wonderland, and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes.” –Morpheus (The Matrix, 1999) The “rabbit hole” adventure & discovery came to life at Oxford… My […]

Some of the most amazing personalities I have met in my lifetime

As a career educator and not someone who is actively engaged in the business world, per se, I have entered the EMBA Programme with some fear and trepidation. I have spent the past 25 years as a teacher, collegiate professor, and school administrator. Over the past several years, my engagement with a group of school […]

Your employer – a key to your executive education

I came to a point when I knew I needed to step change my contribution and effectiveness at work if I was going to advance in my career. I spent a few years as a middle manager at a couple large multinationals but wanted to move into more senior roles. As such augmenting my professional […]
