Why did you decide to continue your education and how did you choose BBS?
Having worked for an oil company as a Business Analyst, I got the desire to pursue an MBA. I applied to several universities, and secured admission but without funding. My brother’s friend (BBS Alumnus) later introduced me to Bologna Business School and their Africa scholarship program. I liked the Green energy and sustainable businesses track and straight away applied for it.

What is the added value of being part of the BBS Community?
The huge network was created from all over the globe.
What would you advise a BBS student to do?
While reading hard, build lasting relationships. Also, be open to change…your next opportunity may be in a field you have never thought about.
