ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS
All praise and thanks to the Almighty god, on whom ultimately we depend for sustenance and guidance. I convey special acknowledgement to my uncles and friends in UK, for their indispensable help dealing with funds, special care, politeness, and all types of help in the accommodation in UK. I won’t forget for what they have done for me. Without their efforts, it could have not been possible for me to do MBA from UK. Their encouragement and kind support will remain in my mind throughout my whole life.
