Benedict Carandang is a Chevening Scholar pursuing his MBA at the University of Westminster. He was selected and honoured as a Young Global Leader 2012 by the World Economic Forum for his work in championing the creative industries in the Philippines. He was previously an Entrepreneurship Consultant of the Commission on Information and Communications Technology under the Office of the President of the Republic of the Philippines where he helped draft the Philippine Digital Creative Content Development Programme which was intended to be the road map of the country in this sector. You can learn more about Benedict from his own words in our MBA blog A Westminster MBA Student as a Young Global Leader
We would like to share a message from Sue Balint, Director of the MBA with some more exciting news:
Each year the Association of MBAs (AMBA) in conjunction with the Independent newspaper runs a competition to find the AMBA Student of the Year. Within the AMBA community, this is a very prestigious award and competition to secure one of the 6 official nominations for the award is extremely fierce. To be nominated and (hopefully) awarded the title, candidates have to demonstrate that they embody the values and objectives of an AMBA accredited MBA; the ability to making a difference not only to their company or organisation but also to society as a whole by conducting business in an ethical and socially responsible manner.
I am delighted to announce that Benedict (Ben) Carandang (F/T September 12 cohort) has been officially nominated for the award – the first Westminster MBA student to be nominated. Unfortunately we will need to wait until AMBA’s annual dinner and award ceremony in October to see if Ben is awarded the Student of the Year title. Still we are crossing our fingers and hoping that he will be successful.
