3 things I learned interning at a purpose consultancy

In all honesty, I never thought I’d work at a consultancy. I tend to be more of an introvert, and while I’ve worked in sales and marketing (and loved it), I shied away from consulting because I believed it was “for extroverts”. Well, that’s not true at all (see this Fast Company article if you […]

Why an Oxford MBA after working in Private Equity?

Sometimes people choose their life path, but sometimes they are living the lives in which they were chosen to be. It makes sense, we are only 18 years old when we are supposed to take one of the most important decisions of our lives: “What to study? Which college to go to? What do we […]

Want to make an impact? Learn how to be kind to yourself

I am sure most of you have had that moment where your attempt at a good intention failed. Maybe you bought a gift for someone that they were disappointed with. Or you told someone “you look great today” and they responded “are you saying I don’t look good every day?” Or in the case of […]

Post-MBA Thoughts on Purpose

In Trinity Term one of my favourite MBA electives was the Nature of the Corporation. In this course we asked, “what’s the purpose of a corporation?”, “do companies need to have a clear purpose?”, “how many corporations adhere to a healthy reason for their being?”, “is this reason good for shareholders alone or does it have a […]

Student Spotlight #1

Everyone I’ve spoken with from our incoming class seems really excited to get to know their other classmates. Of course they are! We’re quite fun and interesting people, if I do say so myself. But we also have a quite large class size of about 320. There’s no way you’ll be able to truly get […]
