Mohammed Omer OI (2005-2008), became part of the first cohort at New York University in Abu Dhabi and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts (BA) Double Major in Economics, Finance and Social Research and Public Policy. 

Mohammed is now an Associate in the Healthcare Group at Mubadala, an Abu Dhabi-based Sovereign Wealth Fund.

His life in Abu Dhabi is now a real family affair with his parents, siblings, and cousin living there too.

Mohammed has very fond memories of Ipswich School, naming many teachers who are still there like Mr Welbourn, Mr Thompson and Mr and Mrs Blunden. One of his fondest memories is being part of the School's production of ‘Our Country’s Good’ and performing this at the Edinburgh Fringe. 

He is still in contact with many of his peers including Yasir Khan OI (2007-2009) and Ashwin Raj OI (1999 -2010) and was pleased to see Sumitha Bose OI (2005-2010) taking part in the careers talk to the School's Sixth Formers in October.

Mohammed is very keen to get in contact with any OIs who are also living in or near Abu Dhabi once the COVID-19 restrictions end, so please do reach out to him via Carrie Baker, Development Officer, by emailing cab@ipswich.school
