Everything they were looking for matched what I had done at WMG. From the business aspects of supply chain management and procurement to process engineering, what I’d learned at WMG and what Reckitt Benckiser wanted dovetailed together perfectly. It’s easy to see why the company wants to employ WMG graduates. Nana Prempeh, Ghana PIBM Graduate 2008 “
