Alumni Profile: South Africa
forward thinking inc., MPhil in Management 2008
The MPhil in Management course provided me with practical and theoretical skills that I now use on a daily basis as a consultant. The diversity of courses available and the high calibre of teaching at Cambridge Judge Business School made the learning experience extremely fulfilling. Moreover, the quality relationships that I developed with the dynamic people in my class, at the School and in the wider university, made my experience one that I will remember and cherish for the rest of my life.
Born in South Africa, Mark graduated from University of Cape Town with a First Class degree in Economics and Environmental Science and moved to the UK in 2007 to take the MPhil in Management at Cambridge University. Mark currently works for a strategy consultancy called forward thinking inc. where he leads their sustainability practice. Before joining forward thinking, Mark worked for BP, as well as helped set-up the London-based sustainability consultancy Carbon Smart. He is also the founder of a sustainable fashion social enterprise called the Junction Boutique. In 2009 he was selected as a Future 100 Social Entrepreneur in the UK.
