Today (September 17) marks exactly one year since I started the first day of my MBA program at the University of Oxford. Candidly, to reflect for too long on this past year gives me both a sense of overwhelming happiness and pride, as well as a bittersweet feeling knowing that it has come to an end.
As I look back on the adventures and learnings, I experienced more than I actually thought was possible. These experiences included:
The list could go on for many lines, but the main shoutout goes to my incredible cohort of people who made this experience so special for me.
If I had to give an incoming MBA student (Oxford or otherwise) advice, these would be my takeaways:
A huge thank you to Liam Kilby from MBA Recruitment and Admissions for giving me the leap of faith to come to Oxford Saïd Business School MBA program, to Tom Lawrance from the SBS Career Development Centre for helping me and my classmates find job opportunities, and Bindu Garapaty and Paul Hesselroth for being amazing mentors and supporters throughout my journey. It truly does take a village!
Looking forward, I am excited to begin the next chapter of my career in marketing at Amazon Web Services, based in London. Onwards and upwards!
