Student Profile(s)

William Annoh

I was particularly impressed with the way that the online programme was structured.

My Student Advisor Rebekah was very helpful in advising me and guiding me through the process. All the faculty who taught the modules were very very helpful; they taught me so much. I’ve learnt a lot of things and I’m willing and ready to use them in my career path.

I particularly loved the discussion forums. It was a platform for us to engage with each other, so it helped us as online participants to get to know each other and think about different things. It helped me open my mind to a lot of different ideas.

Now that I’ve finished my degree, the first thing I plan to do is to better myself in my role at work. I just started a new role last month so I’m looking forward to using my experiences from here to grow that. On the side I do some consultancy as well, and I have helped manage a few people in showbiz. This is a great degree that I can use to project manage the things that I do on that front. I plan to start my consultancy full-blown in a couple of years so I’m sure that insight from this degree will be very helpful for that.
