One of the most interesting parts of my career was studying for my MBA at the University of East Anglia. My journey up to university was a strange one. Personally, I am from a poorer background and if it wasn't for my law teacher, Sally Stanyer, I would never had gone to university. That's a story for another time, and one that I am more than happy to share, it's just not one for this post.
One of the most important things for us at Tech Educators is to deliver a great service, for those investing their time and effort in us. That's from our students who we have a duty of care to deliver an amazing course. The companies that we hope to place our students with. Our partners who we work with to bring the worlds best course material, our local economy and the wider community.
When you write it all out. You can see why doing what we do isn't easy. There's a lot of moving parts and responsibility to undertake. It's not one that we take on lightly.
As part of the UEA MBA, teams of consultants are taken into real world businesses and asked to conduct a live project. So that's what we asked the UEA to do.
The overarching premise of this project is to get under the skin of our stakeholders and truly define, in a nutshell what it is our stakeholders require.
We want to be open, honest, and up-front as a company, so barring any clear conflicts of interest that relate to sensitive commercial material. We will make this a publicly available piece of work, putting the key findings into the community, both locally and globally.
Until next time all, speak soon.
