About Asif Durrani

I am payments protagonist and an aspiring pedagogist. I am progressively cracking to find my true potential.

Who am I, what I do and where am I…

I am living in Dubai for the past ten years and have been associated with Digital Financial Payment services (known as Fintech). Currently I am working as Country Manager for UnionPay International with past experiences of working with digital payment companies like Visa, TSYS Payments and the National Payment Switch back in my home country (Pakistan).  

I am a schmoozer. I talk a lot and write articles in my free time on Medium. I read on a broader spectrum and read regularly. I switch reading between fiction and non fiction. At present, I am reading Homo Sapien by Yuval Noah Haririi. 

You may also find me at the fairways of Montgomerie Golf club, which is 15 min drive from HULT Campus; we can have a tee-off together if your handicap is higher than mine. 

Last month I completed my executive MBA from HULT (2 years of pedagogy with highs and lows). It was an amazing life-changing experience. I am a recipient of Deans’ List of Honor and HULT Annual Student Award (the Peer Motivator). During my journey, I also pitched for HULT Prize Award and attended Accenture Consulting Weekend. These days I am preparing myself for a Doctorate of Business Administration.
