The MBA is an American qualification, so I thought the best option would be an American school with an international environment. ISM turned out to be a place where I could learn about other cultures and peoples and discover myself in the process. I’m Irish, but it’s funny how a Kenyan friend of mine, who’s also coming from a former British colony, will think about problems and approach in the same way as I do. French students, or students from French West Africa, will approach it differently. I think my MBA has made me more mobile. Although my background is in financial reporting, I wrote my thesis in risk management, and I know I can transfer to that sector without having to start from scratch.
