My M.Sc. journey has been an arduous one, fraught with numerous challenges. However, through a commitment to the continuous pursuit of excellence in my work and a thirst for knowledge, I have pulled through. I am deeply humbled and honoured to be first in a class of such quality students. I owe a debt of gratitude to BAC, with its highly professional academic and library staff, for enabling me to affordably pursue a quality higher qualification in a discipline I am strongly passionate about, strategy. As I venture into practice, I carry with me the same commitment to the pursuit of excellence in the hope that I make a discernible difference, however small, to the business environment and to my country.
