The Opportunity

Contracts IT was presented with the opportunity to attend the Tuck Business School programme at Bristol Myers Squibb Supplier Diversity Day held in Chester and organised by MSDUK the leading supplier diversity advocate organisation in the UK.  The event was attended by Bristol Myers Squibb’s Global Procurement teams and Category leaders from across their European network. It was an invitation for ethnic minority businesses to engage with Bristol Myers with a view to learning more about their supplier diversity initiatives, their programs and about partnering with them as a supplier. This is one of a number of events that MSDUK organises in partnership with its corporate partners to support ethnic minority businesses in the UK


Attending the Tuck Business School programme Naheed Afzal, Co-Founder of Contracts IT stated: ‘Having always wanted to attend a business school programme I was thrilled to have been given such a wonderful opportunity, also the chance to learn and grow from one of the world’s finest business faculties and to be taught by some of the best teaching minds in business school today. Many meaningful connections were made with business leaders and different organisations’.

The Tuck Business school programme is designed as a strategic retreat exposing students to traditional academic disciplines but focusing on their businesses and the challenges they face in a globalized world marked affected by rapid technological change and evolving business models.

‘This was a fast pace programme with a focus on quantitative, analytical and intensely collaborative sessions that provides a deep dive into everything business with time and opportunity to reflect, refine and to manage future business performance and risk’. Naheed Afzal, Co-Founder, Contracts IT.
