  • What were your personal highlights during the MIM Programme?

Meeting such a diverse and intellectual group of young professionals was an unbelievable highlight for me. I never thought I would build such valuable friendships from people around the world! I can truly say that the MIM programme provides a unique opportunity to participate in well renown universities from different parts of the world.  

  • What makes the MIM Programme so unique?

What makes the MIM Programme so special is that it provides the young professional with the tools to participate in an accelerated 1 year program in two countries with a finishing goal of earning a Master’s from a great university. All while still giving us space to make the experience our own! The programme was disciplined in its criteria and uniquely flexible, it allowed us to gain our own independence and craft the experience as our own. It was truly rewarding! 

  • Your message to current and prospective students

This programme is intense and disciplined in its curriculum, there will be moments that may seem challenging but you will always have a support system. Allow yourself to stop, breath, and enjoy the riches of the current country you are living in. Don’t forget to be present, live in the moment because that 1 short year will pass by before you know it!
