One of the most challenging yet thrilling years of my life

Bernadette Mandawa Chikumbi, Zambia
Institution:Vlerick Business School
Program:Masters in General Management
Degree:2008

The year I spent at Vlerick Leuven Gent Management School was indeed one of the most challenging yet thrilling years of my life. Coming from a completely different environment, I initially did not know what to expect. To my surprise, from the very start I was surrounded by very warm and supportive people who immediately made me feel at home.

I must admit that the Master in General Management programme was undoubtedly demanding and one had to work extra hard, but it was amazing how each time I learnt something new about the business world.

It is actually the unique way in which courses were administered that strikes me the most because I have since been able to spontaneously integrate theory and practice.

Thanks to the emphasis placed on working in teams, I now understand how inevitable team spirit is when it comes to successfully managing business situations. If there is one thing I have really come to appreciate about the programme, it’s that I finally have a solid enough foundation to be anything I want to be. As an internatational student, I have learnt that at Vlerick, it does not matter where you come from. All you need is to be ready for a challenge and you fit right in.
