Ashleigh Herd, Green Templeton College student profileMaster of Business Administration

I am in the MBA programme at the Saïd Business School. My passion is enriching the development of others through building strong teams and human centered business cultures. After earning my Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering from Kansas State University, I spent six years in manufacturing operations, leading cross functional teams, and executing projects utilising change management principles. The last few months, I have been in Training and Organizational Development, managing learning and development programs.

I plan on leveraging the MBA programme, in combination with my technical background and passion for people, to transition into Organisational Development Consulting. I believe through this programme I will develop my business acumen, hone my consulting skills, and better meet the needs of a diverse and global market.

I look forward to working with and learning from my peers, both inside and outside of the classroom, and making the most of this year through all the unique opportunities Green Templeton and the University of Oxford have to offer.
