  • What were your personal highlights during the MIM Programme?

For me it was the first semester at Northeastern. I completed my first semester at the highly esteemed D’Amore-McKim School of Business at Northeastern University, Boston, MA. This winter semester in ‘The Hub’ opened my eyes to the American style of education and campus living which was totally different from that I had experienced previously. Evening lectures, guest professors, a city-sized university, a fully equipped urban campus as well as sports, societies and a natural campus buzz were all at our fingertips within the heart of one of the world’s most student-oriented cities.

  • What makes the MIM Programme so unique?

The MIM Programme runs for 12-15 months across two leading business universities. Its opens the students eyes to an international network. The degree has excellent professors, who mostly have a professional business or industrial based background which can be brought in to enhance the learning experience. The MIM programme takes you out of your comfort zone but gives you a wealth of international experience that will really stand to you in your future career.

  • Your message to current and prospective students.

This program has expanded my network of contacts tremendously. This network has crossed boarders as the MIM program brings together a unique make up of talented students with different cultural fabric beyond their home nation. In addition to professional aspects mentioned, the MIM program gave me some valuable life experience and learning that cannot be attained inside a lecture hall. New friends, professional connections and cultural involvements across continents are just some of the experiences the MIM program has provided me with.
