"My first profession was as a teacher, and I've always advocated continuous education. There's always more to learn, especially in the business world.”
YASMIN'S PRE-EMBA JOURNEY…
Yasmin’s EMBA journey began in 2016 when she pursued a Mini MBA programme while a Business Manager at Agilent Technologies.
“Having dedicated a significant portion of my career to sales management, I felt the need to expand my horizons and equip myself with a broader set of tools and skills. And I wanted to test the waters before making the decision to pursue a full-scale EMBA, so I opted for a mini-MBA.”
During her studies, Yasmin was promoted to a Senior Management role within the company. After completing the mini-MBA, she participated in the Emerging Leaders Programme (ELP) at Agilent Technologies. The ELP, similar to a mini-MBA, involved collaborating with other participants to solve a challenging business case while receiving coaching to develop into an emerging leader.
“I assumed the role of lead liaison for a significant departmental project. I submitted the project on behalf of our team and around this time I discovered that I was being considered as the successor to the VP of our division.”
Seeking to prepare for the role, Yasmin was placed in the category of "ready later" and advised to complete an EMBA by the VP, as that was the norm of professionals at the VP level for the company.
