Mission accomplished

On the 28th May 2019 in the great city of Sopot, Poland,  I successfully defended my PhD thesis on “ The role of entrepreneurship on the economic development of Nigeria”. It has been a long and tough journey and there were times when I nearly packed it up, but so many incredible people encouraged me, especially when I lost my mother who had been my greatest supporter six months earlier. 

The viva was an experience on it’s own, there was a 30 minute presentation, followed by some tough questions by the external reviewers and the university professors. I was asked to step out whilst they deliberated. In what seemed like eternity, I paced down the corridors. When I was finally called in,  the vice dean of the faculty of economics, the two eminent external professors, several professors from the university as well as my wonderful supervisors stood as I was  given the good news. It was a unanimous decision with no need for any amendments. The rest of that ceremony was a blur.

Food and drinks flowed thereafter courtesy of the university.

As a child, it was my dream to teach at the university, but never thought it was possible. A few years ago after a career in accountancy at EDS/ Hewlett Packard, I decided it was time to pursue that dream, a speculative CV sent to a university got me a job to teach on the professional accountancy course. I subsequently started my PhD and then left my job at HP to pursue my dream as a university lecturer. I have loved every minute of my new career.

Nearly 5 years after I started, I was awarded my PhD  by a group of eminent professors.

I am still on cloud 9, it will take sometime before it finally sinks in. Teaching is not a job for me and specialising in entrepreneurship is a just pure joy.

  2. I have been surfing online more than 2 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article
    like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be a lot more useful than ever before.

  4. I believe everything said was actually very reasonable.
    However, what about this? suppose you composed a catchier title?

    I am not suggesting your information is not solid, but what if
    you added a headline to possibly grab a person’s attention? I mean Mission accomplished | Enterprise Training and Consulting is a little boring.

    You should look at Yahoo’s front page and note how they write news titles to get viewers interested.
    You might add a related video or a picture or two to grab readers excited about what you’ve got to say.
    Just my opinion, it might make your website a little bit more interesting.
