Naureen has more than 12 years of diverse experience in the areas of project management, communications, knowledge management and management consulting. She is currently working as Project Manager – Financial Inclusion at CARE International.

Prior to joining CARE, Naureen was working as Manager Sector Development at the Pakistan Microfinance Investment Company (PMIC) She also has experience of working with the Pakistan Poverty Alleviation Fund (PPAF) and Sidat Hyder Morshed Associates (Pvt) Ltd – a management consulting firm. She recently completed the Australian Awards Women in Executive Leadership Development course from University of Queensland, Australia.

This is what she had to say about her experience at MDi Pakistan.

In 2017, I sought to pursue further education despite my existing MBA from Bahria University. Exploring options available in Islamabad, the USQ Australia Masters  degree program at MDi came across as the most flexible option with the opportunity to pursue a foreign degree whilst remaining in Pakistan. The program was enriching and provided an opportunity to apply my work experience to the assignments with guidance from the professors at USQ and the course facilitators here at MDi.

Moreover, my specialization in Digital Transformation was interesting and also relevant to my role with the increased focus on digitalization, data analysis, business intelligence and information security. I would like to thank the MDi team for their continuous support and facilitation! With my experience and academic aspirations, I now plan to pursue a PhD in the future!
