MSc in Project Management graduate
Ahmed Ojeifo works in Germany for a hydropower company that produces generators and turbines for customers in over 32 countries. Originally from a rural area of Nigeria, Ahmed knows all too well the power-supply problems in many developing countries – a situation he wants to help address through his work.
Ever since he was a child, Ahmed has been a strong believer in the need for personal development, regarding learning as a lifelong journey towards continual self-improvement. He graduated in Nigeria with a degree in mechanical engineering, and spent two years working for a local engineering company before moving to Germany. He recognised, however, that to take his career to the next level, he needed to upgrade his education to access higher-level project-management opportunities.
That’s when he discovered the University of Roehampton, London Online. By studying an online MSc in Project Management with Roehampton, Ahmed saw a way to gain a credible, quality-assured masters-level qualification with the potential to transform his life and his career – while continuing to work. He saw it as an opportunity to take him closer to his ambition of helping to alleviate power-supply problems in Nigeria and other developing countries.
Soon after beginning his studies, Ahmed noticed a difference at work, in his understanding, interaction and communication. Even before he graduated, he was talking to his bosses about upgrading his role – and taking himself one step nearer to his professional ambitions.
More than 90% of students believe their degree will be valuable or very valuable to their careers after graduation*
