Our alumni: Busi Silwanyana

Busisiwe Silwanyana (MBA, 2006-07) is Director of Business Lending, Standard Bank of South Africa. Busi says:

The insights gained through the Board Room simulation have been of great value in strategy formulation and implementation at a practical level.

“The Durham MBA enabled my transition from a specialist role in structured debt financing in a Corporate and Investment Bank to a general management role. The span of control of my current role is wide and accountability is significant in terms of the size of the business I look after and its contribution to the wider bank.

The Durham MBA has enabled me to be resourceful in developing not only my management skills but also a leadership role and an ability to influence and persuade a wide range of stakeholders within the organisation to buy into the strategic direction of the business."
