My experience as Oxford Seed Fund Managing Director

It’s only a few weeks to the end of my MBA experience, and I cannot believe how quickly time flew by.

The Power of the Oxford Network

Hilary term: the Oxford MBA so far

Like any great adventure, time does truly fly. It seems like yesterday my family and I were packing our “life” in a few bags to move to Oxford. It has now been almost 8 months since our big move; Michaelmas and Hilary term have come to an end, which means we are more than halfway […]

The MBA so far

With COVID19 in the air, we’ve moved to digital classes. That means our MBA is now completely online and we have to rely on our devices to keep us connected. Classmates have moved back to be with their loved ones, and we’ve had to come up with new ways to communicate, plan events, and learn […]
