“I wanted to bridge my previous psychology studies with business, to be able to expand my knowledge in a completely new field. What I enjoy most about the programme is the diversity in the cohort. We’re being pushed to take different perspectives to challenges, and collectively coming to a conclusion. We combine our previous educational backgrounds into creating unique outcomes. MiM truly exposes you to opportunities I thought I would never have. It’s a challenging programme, but I have gained so much insight, and grown so much as a person.”
