SUCCESS STORIES
Dr Paul

While previously working as a Physician Lead in a large medical group, I was determined to diversify my career. Not only did this MBA provide me with knowledge about the commercial aspects of the Medicine and Healthcare industry, but it has also given me the confidence to present well and speak with conviction for a more effective pitch of my ideas. While the MBA is just the beginning of my journey to career progression, it has given me the skills to make the right connections.

Continuous learning is not just for the younger generation. I believe that everything is possible as long as you put your mind and heart into it. Hence, with a desire to expand my knowledge, improve the standard of my work and elevate my professional marketability, I decided to embark on this Master of Business Administration (MBA) journey despite being in my early fifties.

During the MBA programme, I addressed real-world business challenges, which honed my ability to see beyond my role and understand how organisations operate. This also increased my exposure to diverse perspectives on global, social and business issues as I collaborated with peers whose backgrounds, experiences and career goals differ from mine.
