Hal Weston (MBA 1) and Manish Sawadkar (MBA 34) represent the oldest and youngest Otago MBA graduates and capture the changing face of the Otago MBA over its impressive 35 years.
Manish, who hails from Vashai, Navi Mumbai, was recruited as part of Otago MBA’s Six Continent Selection Strategy, which aims to reinforce the programme’s global perspective. The Otago MBA is New Zealand’s leading full-time campus based MBA.
Hal, who came from a background in broadcasting and television, was in the first intake of the Otago MBA students. Hal graduated in 1981. Manish now works as an ICT Technical Consultant for Objective Corporation in Wellington.
Hal and Manish met recently during last year’s Otago MBA Alumni road-show held in Wellington, Auckland and Dunedin. The road-show entitled World Future, NZ Future, MBA Future featured Otago MBA alumna Wendy McGuinness as keynote speaker.
