"The track Strategy provided me with excellent insight in how organisations work and what issues are relevant in a fast changing competitive environment"

Ben van Vliet MSc, Business analyst at FD Media Group

"The most energy I received from the teachers and fellow students: some teachers were so passionate about their profession which gave me a boost for the weekend. For instance the  classes on leadership and business ethics. And my fellow students who were so motivated and gave interesting input and insights about their companies. This inspired me to get the best out of myself."
