Taoufik Mousselmal

2056.jpg Taoufik Mousselmal came to WMG from France in 2011 to study for an MSc in Innovation and Entrepreneurship. We asked him to talk to us about his experiences at Warwick – and how the programme helped him launch his own successful enterprise.

“After completing my first degree in Computer Science Engineering in Paris, I gained internships with a number of global financial and consulting organisations including Citigroup in London, Barclays in France and finally, Deloitte in Abu Dhabi.

The work was certainly very challenging and I enjoyed it immensely. But despite the great career opportunities, prestigious companies and high salaries, I felt that it simply wasn’t for me.

I come from a family that runs businesses. Entrepreneurship is in our blood and I wanted to realise my own dream, rather than someone else’s.

So I decided that taking an MSc was an obvious next step and after much research, I decided that WMG’s Masters in Innovation and Entrepreneurship was the perfect choice.

And it was a terrific 12 months. It was very challenging; I have never learned so much in such a short space of time! But our course leader was an inspiring personality who helped me make the most of my year in working towards the development of my business which was the focus of my dissertation;

I wanted to show the effectiveness of learning through digital storytelling for 21st century education. I worked in collaboration with a young education start-up called The Night Zoo Keeper to design a tailored approach to integrating digital storytelling within the 21st century classroom.

I had become interested in education during my time working on an internship in the Middle East. I saw a lot of inequality and the gap between the learning opportunities for those who have and those who have not seems to be widening.

My aim now I have finished my MSc course is to turn my idea into a successful application that changes lives. I should mention that this isn’t my only start up! During my year at Warwick, I also began two other businesses: one in web-based food retailing and another in online health and beauty product sales.

To sum up my year, I would have to say that is was thoroughly inspirational. I learned more than I could have imagined. Not just about innovation and entrepreneurship – but also about myself. It’s a time that I will never forget.

2057.jpg WMG’s one-year Innovation and Entrepreneurship MSc programme is designed to give ambitious people the knowledge and understanding they need to run their own innovation-driven globally orientated enterprises. Having recently completed the course, we asked Derrick Pang to reflect on his experience of Warwick - and tell us about his plans for the future.

“After gaining my first degree at The University of California, Berkeley in the USA, I worked as a software engineer for a number of start-ups. That really fuelled my ambition to set up my own company."

I met a UC Berkeley alumni in Hong Kong who had studied his Masters and PhD at Warwick. He told me about the Innovation and Entrepreneurship program. I researched it and realized that this could be exactly what I was looking for. It offered a broad range of modules (classes), plus it seemed to take a very practical approach to things.

The course was challenging but provided time for a social life and travelling as well. Because you only have 10 weeks of class, you really need to manage your time appropriately between working and playing. The modules being 40-hour one week modules were intense, but for me, that was normal as I'd spent plenty of time in a working environment. And the course leader was great and was always there to listen, support us and help us make the most of the program.

One thing that I loved was the group activity and project work. In one example, as part of the Management of Change module, the class was split into two groups for a simulation. Each group was a company and every member of the team had their own role.
The simulation lasted three days and as we worked through it, our tutor would introduce outside influences that we hadn’t anticipated. This showed us that however much you plan, the real world will always throw unexpected things at you, forcing you to change and adapt all the time.
In this kind of exercise, you are constantly applying the concepts that you learn in actual business situations. It makes those concepts really stick in your mind. And as we were working together as teams to steer our companies through sometimes challenging situations, we learned a lot about ourselves too.

Another good thing about the course is that…
