Of Passion & Determination! This Inspiring Story of Mogbekeloluwa Koye Ladele’s Journey to INSEAD is a Must READ

I shared my story in long and short form on Bella Naija. It is short because it is all in one post; my life’s story could easily fill one or two books. It is long because I condensed many things into just over a thousand words.

I was not sure how much to share in this post. I ultimately decided to share enough to encourage 15*-year old me (heading off to OAU) and other young people.

So, here’s a link. If you like it, feel encouraged, or feel challenged - drop a comment or share. If you want to talk, message or email me. It may take a while, but I’ll get back to you.

Cheers to the weekend.

INSEAD 18D: And So It Begins...

I wrote about my first few days at INSEAD, for the INSEAD MBA blog. First few paragraphs below, and a link to the full post here. It was edited a bit and parts of my original writing were lost in the editing, but for consistency - I will not be posting the original version.

"First, I had an almost-spiritual event on Tuesday. After aspiring to study here since 2012, I walked on the Fontainebleau campus for the first time! I wandered dreamily around the grounds, read posters from 1957 announcing the founding of the school, and met future classmates from four continents. I left campus in awe, reassured that I had chosen correctly.

A long road led here since earning my Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from the Obafemi Awolowo University, Nigeria. After reading Jack Welch’s Winning in 2010, I became interested in international businesses and how its many parts worked together to create shareholder value. As I worked at P&G on brands seeking to touch and improve the lives of the world’s consumers, I realized the potential of businesses to transform society in addition to generating shareholder value. I then decided to pursue a Master’s degree in Business Administration, to establish a foundation across the different areas of business and facilitate the achievement of my career objectives."

Again, full post is here.
