What led you to take the Cambridge MBA?

Coming from military background, I was looking for the best platform that would help me make the move towards the business world. I chose the Cambridge MBA due to its intense and focussed one-year programme. In addition, Cambridge Judge Business School was the school at which I felt most at home when I visited.

Describe the biggest accomplishment in your career so far

As the executive officer of a missile ship, I had the privilege of leading a group of 70 soldiers and 15 officers. Making such a large amount of people work together in a complex environment felt like being a conductor who directs the performance of an orchestra; my biggest accomplishment was being awarded best ship in the Navy.

How do you feel about being awarded a scholarship or bursary?

I feel blessed having been awarded a scholarship for the Cambridge MBA. The scholarship will allow me the opportunity to develop my skills in business and move into a new direction.
