Why did you choose to pursue an International MBA?
I was convinced, and I am more so now, that an International MBA not only provides the academic tools to succeed in the vast business world but it also operates a change in the person that propels him or her into a higher gear of creativity, performance and achievements.
Why did you choose to follow this program at Nyenrode?
Nyenrode promised to be both uniquely excellent academically and at the human level...
How did the MBA program impact you personally and professionally?
Everything is now possible. It is a belief that comes only from the confidence gained from the program. The future is beautiful, no longer intimidating and full of promises for myself and all around me.
Would you recommend this program to others?
Definitely and for the rest of my life.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
I think that in the next 5 years, I would have launched at least three successful and sustainable business ventures, one of them hopefully a cooperative.
Please describe the program using a few keywords.
Compact and powerful, demanding, exhilarating, life changing.
Please describe who a typical Nyenrodian is.
Capable of recreating civilization if thrown alone on an island but prefers company and team accomplishments; mindful of his or her actions impact on others and the environment; action focused but long term oriented; philanthropist at heart; hits the ground running when taking up a new task, project or responsibilities.
Which international modules did you participate in and what was your experience with them?
All three of them. EU: opened my eyes to the world of lobbyists and their workings within international institutions; China: the long march continues but now every Chinese citizen is taking part in it and at a much faster speed towards modernization and the taking up of a new role and position in the world's economy and politics; US: confirmed to me that Nyenrode is at par with if not above best business teaching in the world
