Lanre Anibaba, MBA
I came to the WU with almost 20 years working experience in the oil and gas business and yet was amazed as to how much more I’ve learnt about the energy business in such a short while. The MBA in Energy Management is rich in both content and structure with guest lecturers who are acclaimed practitioners in their fields. The faculty is very international, representing state-of-the-art knowledge while the diversity in student body ensures cross-cultural learning and the feeling of being at home regardless of where you come from. For me it’s been a challenging and yet an enriching experience.
