Alan Paterson (IMBA 2008)

GST Manager PricewaterhouseCoopers, Sydney, Australia

I came to WUT BS to study for an IMBA on a career break from PricewaterhouseCoopers in the UK. Having never studied business before, I had always been interested in taking a step back from the hustle and bustle of working life to consider the theories underlying what I had seen on a day-to-day basis in my work. As I had previously juggled work and studies when completing my professional qualifications in tax, I decided to do the IMBA full-time programme. I was lucky enough to have an understanding employer who was willing to give me the time off to do this. An MBA at WUT BS allows you to get many different perspectives on business. The academic staff both from Poland and overseas have a very broad business experience and I also drew on a lot on the experiences of others in my class. We also got the opportunity to go out and talk to businesses about the challenges they are experiencing in a changing world.

On graduating from WUT BS I embarked on a new challenge in my professional life, moving to Sydney, Australia to complete a two year secondment for PricewaterhouseCoopers Australia. My studies have proved very valuable in preparing me for my first overseas assignment with work. I am already applying some of what I learnt in my day-to-day work here in Australia and I expect to be drawing on my experiences in Warsaw throughout my career.
