Daniel Conde, (Colombian) Co-founder of APD Inc., Full-time MBA, Essex Business School, UK
“I’m an entrepreneur, I’ve been running my business since 2016. My general background is in marketing, so doing the MBA gave me a broader perspective about what can be done, and now I’m taking this knowledge into my business venture. I am one of the Co-founders of APD Inc. ( https://apddrones.com/ )in Columbia. Since my MBA our vision about what can be done, and how we can achieve new goals has expanded a lot.
The best module, in my personal experience, was Sustainable Operations Management, led by Professor Marco Nowinski. Marco is a great teacher, and his real-life experience combined with his academic knowledge is just fantastic. I enjoyed the module a lot and I was inspired in how to refine the operations in my company, something I have previously shied away from. I was awarded an Essex MBA Dean’s Award scholarship after taking part in a Shark Tank event and I also received a sponsorship from Essex Startups and the University to grow my company here from the UK.”
