University life and experience
Chika initially decided to study at the University of Hertfordshire based on our impressive Learning Resource Centres and our close proximity to London. As an international student, these factors were extremely important to ensure she had the tools and support to succeed in her course.
Her course, MSc Biotechnology, enabled Chika to push herself and provide a comprehensive and practical approach to the industry she wanted to pursue a career in.
‘Our course was delivered using a problem-based learning approach where we tried to solve problems using real-life scenarios as case studies.’
Similarly, Chika goes on to add that the composition of the modules on her course was completely different to other universities as the variety on offer ‘covered all areas within the sector'. She firmly believes that as a University of Hertfordshire alumna, she has ‘the best recipe for success’ and ‘the world is [her] oyster'.
Since graduating in 2014, Chika’s career has spanned three continents and several multinational companies. She is currently the CEO of Greymate Care in Africa, which has launched a new app recently and has expanded into Canada, with hopes of a UK launch soon. Her ambitions don't stop there, and in the future, she would like to become a renowned business mogul and take the world by storm.
In June 2020 we were delighted to announce Chika as our International Alumnus/Alumna of the Year for 2020.
