Well, its done, and I am extremely excited to be able to make this announcement.I have now earned myself an 𝙈𝘽𝘼 degree.
Two years of finding every bit of time, and then some. Change is good. The fun starts now. More to come, but to get up to speed on the background to all this, read on.
Two years ago, I decided that a broader personal challenge was warranted. Something to augment my skill set and career path. 2018 for me, marked a career spanning two decades. I have now earned myself an MBA degree. Received 7 distinctions, 2 high distinctions and 3 credits spread across 12 subjects including the master’s thesis. Getting here took heaps of assignments, exams, quizzes and a lot of effort.
Thank you AIB for the not only posing a worthy challenge, but making the road here both fun and engaging. It is an experience, I will not forget.
The road here involved juggling the challenges of work alongside study, across the range of business areas. Being able to draw on past and present experience to supplement my study was a huge plus. It not only solidified the knowledge but gave me broader insight into my own experience. I learned how to better leverage and apply the knowledge gained. Reflecting back, I recognised early in my own career, the gaps present in this market segment. The role technology played, where my chosen speciality fitted and what needed to be done to bridge the gap.
A lot has changed since 1998. Change, is the only constant
