Here at the MaastrichtMBA, we love our alumni and enjoy staying in touch! We recently caught up with class of 2010 alumni Angela Werner and heard how the MaastrichtMBA has helped her advance her career.
After having the opportunity to build an extensive working experience in the technical area, I was ready to take the next step in my professional career, aiming for roles with higher responsibilities and leadership competences. To this end my motivation to do an MBA was to bring the necessary knowledge and elements to make this a reality.
The fact that the MaastrichtMBA holds a Triple Crown accreditation weighed as one of the most important aspects in which I based my decision – I wanted to attend an institution that was reliable and with international excellence. In addition, I was also searching for an MBA in which I could benefit from a part-time programme. As I was sponsoring myself, I needed to combine the MBA programme with my job. In this aspect, the Executive MBA was the perfect combination, containing weeks of deep diving into the MBA programme, but also giving me enough free time to attend to my professional responsibilities.
The MaastrichtMBA brought me a deeper understanding of all aspects of business structure and functionality. Furthermore, the coaching sessions that were part of the Leadership Development Trajectory allowed me to assess my own standing, strongly contributing to enhance and enforce my management and leadership skills. I am confident to say that my participation in the MBA programme, combined with my determined drive for a career development, enabled me to successfully achieve new challenges in my professional environment.
