Dusan Janjic

Marianne Boelens

“I’ve worked in IT a lot and felt like I should invest in a broader perspective and background information on marketing and strategic subjects, which I get from the OneMBA. This enables me to contribute better to the executive decision-making process. I’ve already experienced this in the OneMBA courses." Read more...

Bastiaan van Nunen

“It’s not about the financial return. It’s about being more complete in who I am and what I do in business. The OneMBA programme gives me confidence there, and at the same time has value in getting to know new people from all over the world.”  Read more...

OneMBA Class of 2016

Olav Andriesse

"People tend to label me as ‘the lawyer’. I want to show the world I have other knowledge and experience. The OneMBA provides me with an alternative label: the businessman. Also, it gives me two years to figure out if I want to leave the law, or move up towards the business side of law.” Read more...

Marjan Groeneveld

“With more than 20 years of working life behind me and at least another 20 years to go, I felt like I was on a crossroad. I’ve been in a financing and banking environment for many years, and wanted to broaden my scope. The OneMBA fits perfectly in that respect.” Read more...

Juan Cajiao

Yvonne Modu

"I’m more practical when presented with complex problems and approach them with an ease l did not have previously (...). The OneMBA is teaching me to be more accommodating and to appreciate that people work differently. Each member of the team brings amazing insights to the team. At the end of the day, you need people to run a business and without them, a business wouldn’t exist." Read more...

“It will enrich my work. I can make a greater contribution as the programme teaches me to see things from different angels across industries.

Tjeerd Kerkhoven

"I’m broadening my experience, knowledge and insights that I can use in the future to look for other opportunities in the global market. I’m working in project team for construction projects now, but I’d like to go more to the business side of it. That’s where the OneMBA comes in really well."

Tessa van Iperen

"As an interim marketing manager, my assignments have always been broader than just the marketing or promotion of the products or services of a client-company. I learned to ask the right questions sooner and understand the impact of the answers better. Even though I’m a generalist, I now present myself as a specialist who is able to think laterally. This new positioning helps me to promote myself. Thanks to the Personal Leadership Development (PLD) sessions I am much more specific now, about who I am and what I do." Read more...

Axel Pieters

"The Global Executive OneMBA programme is creating tremendous opportunities to move on, as it educates you in how to achieve new goals. It will provide a great boost for the second half of my career.
If you don’t develop from the age of 40 you will have a hard time sitting out the next 20 years." Read more...

Jitendra Ahuja

"The course has not just impacted my work: it has impacted my entire life. I am sure I will continue to feel its benefits for a long time to come. On work front, the key thing has been that my interpretation of data has improved. The theory we have been given in finance, marketing, accounting and through case studies has provided the perspective to look beyond the data. Consciously or unconsciously in my work I have begun to look deeper than just what is at face value.” Read more...

Denise Eikelenboom

“I have been put in charge of a new emergency service that in the past was outsourced. I am in charge from start to finish; before the OneMBA this would not have been possible. It’s given me the ability to implement ideas. Everyone has ideas but they lack the tools to evaluate them properly, to see if they can really work and to put them into practice.”

Munish Khurana

"On a personal level, I have learned more about myself and can now verify what I actually want. My ideas have changed and improved. On a professional level, I’m gaining a complete view of all aspects of business.

Janneke Meulenberg

"As the CEO of a company, one is responsible for the overall business strategy, so I felt I it to be important to obtain more background education in finance, marketing, and business administration in general.

Read more...

Marc Groenewegen

"This year’s OneMBA has just completed the European residency in Amsterdam and Istanbul. I was surprised that when I saw people again in Europe after first meeting them six months ago in Washington, it felt like I had known them for much longer than just that one week in Washington  – it just goes to show that the residencies are so intense that what you pick up sticks with you." Read more...

OneMBA Class of 2011

Karin Heijink

"When you come into a new company, you have to understand very quickly how the company operates; with OneMBA I had a framework I could immediately put into practice at MTV. It’s fascinating to see our learning come off the pages of the textbook and come to life!"

Cesar Buque

"I work in an international company with offices in 52 countries, and 45% of my time is spent outside my home base Germany and outside the Dutch Head - quarters, so I was looking for ways to improve my capabilities in managing business within an international environment. I discovered the OneMBA fits my needs exactly… I am continually getting insights that help me to better understand and deal with the international business environment." Read more...

Xavier Blanvillain

"The ‘best part’ of the OneMBA is that each time you complete another module you say: ‘that was the best.’ This programme is about personal and professional transformation on every level. Even if you’re an expert in your field and think you know your business, guess what - there is much more you need to know. The OneMBA gives you access to a whole new world of business, discovery after discovery." Read more...
