Mr. Nigerian Engineer

About Me:

I am a production engineer with over 4 years of experience in project management and business analysis at a major Oil and Gas Corporation in Nigeria (ExxonMobil). I excel at managing projects and operations and coming up with unique solutions to business challenges.


Undergrad School: University of Benin

Undergrad Major: Production Engineering

GPA: 3.5/5.0

GRE: 310

Age: 29,  Ethnicity: Black or African American


Work History:

Title: Project Controls Engineer

Industry: Power / Energy

Company: Fortune 500

Length of Employment: 1 yr, 1 mos

Title: Business Analyst

Industry: Power / Energy

Company: Fortune 500

Length of Employment: 2 yrs

Big Life Wins:

One of my key achievements was being able to modify the operational structure in an FMCG company through observation and application of key engineering principles. I was able to minimize downtime and reduce waste by recommending a reduction of operational speeds on the production line machinery.

Post MBA Goal:

I intend to combine my technical background with business and operations management skills which in turn will better position me to influence key decision-making processes while having the “big picture” in mind. Essentially merging technical know-how with a business/ financial grasp to enable better business decision making ideologies.
