This one’s just a very quick post to finalise my progress on my postgraduate studies. Which is to say: I PASSED MY MBA WITH COMMENDATION! Hooray! Thank goodness for that! If there’s one lesson learned, it’s that I’m done with academia. Not that all the hard work wasn’t worth it, of course it was, and if you’re looking to choose a university yourself for business … Continue reading No More Book-Learning for Me
Well, this is just a short and sweet post to celebrate that I HAVE FINISHED MY MBA DISSERTATION! WOO HOO! It’s all handed in, and the results are now in the hands of the gods (so to speak). I started with all the best intentions to “do well”, but now at the end of the whole course I will be happy with just a pass! *fingers … Continue reading MBA Dissertation Done!
OK, so I’ve been planning on publishing this post for months now, as a report on when I took my friends who visited from America and played tour guide around London! I really wanted it to be a bit more interesting than just a list of places – but as it’s so very late, I’ll stick with what I’ve done so far:
Part of my MBA course this semester was to collaborate on a project with a group from another business school. Our group were the lucky ones to collaborate with Texas Tech University (TTU) – Rawls College of Business. The UK team went over to Lubbock, TX at the end of January (with NO time to recover from our exams!) and spend a great 4 days getting to know the group and making a start on the project tasks. During the last week in May, the TTU team made a return visit to UH to complete the project, and present our findings to our client. Out of all the teams that went abroad for our projects, ours was the only one to get a return visit from our counterparts!
We were extremely lucky to work with such a friendly group of people (both students and lecturers), and I think it’s safe to say that we’ll all be friends for life!
For the first three days (prior to the “official” visit to the UH), I spent the weekend with Tas and Katy from the US team in London – with my tour guide hat on, a tube map, and Google maps on standby (& some comfortable shoes!). I’m not exaggerating by saying that we walked miles and MILES in such a sort time! To help out my US buddies – here’s a guide to where we actually went day by day – with maps and photos!
As there is a lot to tell – I’ll be breaking this down into a few parts: Part One (you’re looking at it) – Part Two [Link Coming SOON!]

Our results came out this afternoon for our exams taken just a few weeks ago in January. I was unsure how I had done, but happily I PASSED! (Does the Happy Dance!) *phew*! No re-takes for me at all so far! So, that means I have a stack of coursework and one exam for this last semester of classes, then I have to do my … Continue reading Passed my January Exams!
Since the last time I posted a quick update, I quite literally haven’t stopped! I’m essentially doing 7 days per week, what with work work, university homework, business trips, classes.. etc. Consequently, I feel somewhat like the walking dead! I don’t know what is going on! Or what day it is. (What day is it? Anyone?!)
