“I attended the University of Cape Town Graduate School of Business to expose myself to different industries and people from diverse backgrounds. When I wanted to dig a bit deeper into natural resources, I discovered the MAM: the perfect opportunity to supplement the MBA by adding a year at Yale to specialize in forestry-related subjects that really excited and interested me.”

“Some of the things I’m learning at Yale SOM are reiterations of what I learned at the School of Drama but through a very different lens, which is fascinating. And then there are the courses that we just don’t have at the drama school.”
