Zainab was awarded Benazir Bhutto Scholarship by London Metropolitan University to do a Masters degree in Management in 2009. Set up by the late Mark Bickerton, the scholarship was awarded to one female each year from Pakistan following tough competition. Zainab was very fortunate to win the scholarship and feels proud and privileged to have come to London Met to study. It has truly been a transformational experience for her.

Soon after completing her studies, zainab's experience of having taught in higher education in Pakistan was recognised and she was offered a part-time teaching contract. Currently, she is a Senior Lecturer in the School of Management on a full-time contract. Zainab is now pursuing a Doctorate programme in Management which she hopes to complete in 2017. She said, "I work with colleagues who are supportive and coming to work is an absolute privilege. There is no doubt that my time at London Metropolitan University has been a life-changing experience."
