    (Student Profile)

    Sam Walker

    I started my chapter in the Middle East five years ago when I left the UK in search for a new experience. I felt like it was time to move on to bigger and better things. I became a Senior Chartering Manager at an oil and gas trading company and since then, I have found my way to Cass.
    Throughout my career I’ve gained knowledge but it hasn’t always been through formal training. I wanted to push further and aim for those senior management roles, I wanted to be able to influence the key strategy and direction of an organisation. And this is where I started researching MBAs, leading me to the Cass Executive MBA programme in Dubai.
    I was excited by the core modules and the breadth and locations of the electives. The opportunity to call on the alumnus network not only in Dubai, but also London, was the final deciding factor.
    So far, my learning experience has been wonderful, challenging, thought provoking, and rewarding. The faculty on the programme are simply amazing. The theory taught has always remained relevant and case studies have been used successfully to support theories.
    All the learning is complimented by the Professional Development workshops and what an eye opener they have been. They have provided the perfect opportunity for self-reflection and allowed me to examine my own leadership style and values, encouraging me to examine areas for self-improvement, in a safe and trusting environment.
    I feel the diversity of the cohort is a valuable asset to the programme. My peers represent a broad span of professional and cultural backgrounds and in this global economy the value this adds is huge. My cohort is inspiring and competitive, but also incredibly supportive and social.
    I have come a long way since starting my EMBA. Before, I would have quickly read financial summaries delivered to me a mere 10 minutes before meetings, but now I find myself reading financial documents well in advance and asking the right questions to my finance colleagues.
    The Executive MBA can be a long and challenging journey. Be prepared to put the hours in; the programme and modules are intensive and require varying amounts of pre-reading and preparation, depending on prior experience. However challenging, this exciting rollercoaster has consolidated strong bonds with my peers.
