Entrepreneurship and Innovation

Why did you choose to study at the University of Edinburgh Business School?

As an entrepreneur, I was attracted by the Business School’s commitment to equip and build a global community of entrepreneurial leaders. We had a diverse class with people coming from all corners of the world, which helped build my global perspective. There is an intentional movement by the Business School to nurture leaders who can contribute towards a sustainable and equitable future, which was evident in the course design.

How did your degree prepare you for your future career?

The biggest takeaway from my degree was that entrepreneurship is a team sport; solving big challenges requires collaboration and partnerships. I gained the skills to identify and communicate problems, as well as convince stakeholders to partner with me to solve those challenges. In my case, this included building a team and seeking donors to provide resources for the mission.
