Incredible Diversity

As a Chinese American based in New York City, I live and breathe diversity every single day. I thought nothing would top that. I was wrong. My Oxford EMBA cohort is incredibly diverse, in a class size of 65 with 40 different nationalities! Simply describing it does not do it justice. Let me give you […]

Halfway through

I’ve been asked recently by some people that intend to join the Oxford Executive MBA programme: how is the experience? Is it worth it? Being at the programme mid-point, I made a more solid view. As always, everything is relative. Some people find value in learning and development, others in buying a holiday house or […]

India

Before arriving, I had a warped vision of Bangalore, expecting it to be a dirty, poverty stricken, smelly, hot and an unsafe place, being only exposed to photos and TV images of India as to what I would be experiencing. To my surprise – whilst some small parts met these expectations, I found a vibrant, […]

Dream & Reality

Oxford, city of dreaming spires. Coming to Oxford, feels like a dream. Like a superman, putting on a cape, flying to Oxford, leaving daily life and noise behind, living a mysterious life, dreaming the dreams. Once the module is over, taking off the cape, and back to my regular mundane self. Three modules into Oxford EMBA […]

I’m back!

7 a.m. on what appears to be a freezing Monday and I’m getting ready to leave my room and head into Saïd. It’s February, it’s Module 2 of the Oxford Executive MBA (January 2018 intake) and I´m back. The first Module in January flew by – everything and everyone was new, an intoxicating mix of […]

Safari of Extremes

I always knew post-graduation that at some point in my life I would like to embark on an MBA but the timing never felt right.  I finally went through the journey of finding the right course and applying.  Having been accepted at all my chosen schools I finally decided on Oxford.  The rankings played a […]
