Before I took my master’s degree, I’d already worked in a consulting firm. The Master in Management programme helped me acquire the academic knowledge I needed to reinforce this experience. The many things I learned and experienced during the course still help me today. As a General Manager, you should always be aware of your company’s business situation so you can intervene to guide it in the right direction whenever necessary.
My time as a student gave me a comprehensive insight into how companies are managed; the strategy classes I took with Professor Stieglitz in particular still influence the way I work today.
The time I spent abroad in Buenos Aires and the many evenings spent in the company of my fellow students. I made a lot of friends at the time, and we’re still very close today.
Contacts, a good network and vitamin B aren’t just a good idea while you’re studying or training, they also do you good afterwards – especially once you start working. An alumni programme can provide all these things.
Dreams are the very best motivator.
