After Davide Iannuzzi’s inspiring talk, Naiza Guttiérez EMBA student of the first cohort, took the stage to reflect on her first year and to impart some great advice. ‘There are going to be moments that you will think: why did I disrupt my comfortable life to go for another study next to my job? That is all normal, because this journey will be intense but rewarding.’ Naiza does not see her MBA only as a career step, but first and foremost as a time to reflect on what is important to her in her work and daily life. ‘Take that time and enjoy it, because this is not something you will experience very often. This MBA shaped the path of my future.’
This new cohort of MBA students is working on a wide range of industries at companies like KLM-Air France, Albert Heijn, DSM, Randstad, JoyPac, Rabobank and DHL. In the upcoming 18 months they will come together once a month to participate in discussions, lectures, group assignments and digital business simulations.
