On Wednesday January 24, Dick Oomen completed the MBA successfully by defending his BCP (Business-IT Alignment in SMEs – The Development of a Framework) in front of Boris Blumberg, Laury Bollen and Anant Joshi. We would like to congratulate Dick Oomen again and wish him all the best for a magnificent future! But why did he choose for the MaastrichtMBA in the first place? And what advice does he have for anyone considering an executive MBA at MaastrichtMBA?
I decided to pursue an MBA to gain new theoretical business insights. My knowledge was mostly limited to my profession, explicit business knowledge required development. After looking into different options for studying, an MBA was the most valuable option.
I enrolled at the MaastichtMBA due to three main reasons:
The study brought a direct pay-off towards my professional life in the challenges I was dealing with at work. New insights and theories were often directly applicable in my professional life. However, the MBA also brought me insights on “How to stay close to myself?” which ultimately caused a goodbye to my employer.
