"My life has totally changed thanks to the UKTA’s education support. I had been working in China Telecom’s R&D centre before the UKTA helped me obtain an MSc in Operational Communication at Coventry University and a PhD on ICT convergence and its supply chain at Cambridge University. With these qualifications I joined Vodafone and have the honour to sit on the UKTA Board and teach a module on the eMCM course."
