Week 1 (MBE)
Reflecting on my first week (induction week) at University of Warwick. I can conclude that I am in the right place and on the right course. Am therefore very excited to embark on this journey to pursue a master’s degree in Management for Business Excellence.
Having listened to the various speakers, there is no doubt that time management is of great essence. The only way to make it through this course and overcome most of the fear mentioned in class on Wednesday is to devote enough time to it. I learnt a lot from all that Paul said and the proverbs mentioned, however one profound statement Paul made that registered explicitly in my mind in regards to business relationships is that, (I cannot quote his exact words) it’s not about being dependent on the relevant entities or independent of them but rather being INTER-dependent, working with one other to achieve the win win situation.
He also mentioned learning through play. I had the opportunity to learn by interacting with group members when doing fun group activities during Wednesday’s seminar. I discovered that I had an untapped artistic talent, as with the help of my group members we were able to make a paper giraffe in less than ten minutes.
