We previously announced the start of 10 new students; we welcomed them to Maastricht on Sunday, 12 November. With pleasure, we would like to introduce them to you. From left to right: Erwin Tol, Deniz Önal, Michiel Commandeur, Ruud Droogendijk, Vaidas Tamasauskas, Sinki Li, Samuel Torres (at the back) and Narinder Kewalapat, Sjoerd Koetje and Bianca Rodrigues (on the front). The setting for this photo shoot was our ‘Tapijnkazerne’ venue. We’re very happy and proud that these talented people chose to be part of our iEMFC learning journey!

After sharing the necessary general information and details about their first seminar during the Welcome Meeting, provided by Harold Hassink, it was time to meet the other students of cohort November 2021, 2022 and March 2023.

To give them an immediate taste of Maastricht’s Burgundian life, the welcome drink was organised in Maastricht’s oldest café: Café In Den Ouden Vogelstruys on the Vrijthof, Maastricht’s most famous square. A great opportunity to get to know each other a little and a good start of this seminar.

Looking at the average age of 33 and the years of work experience in different types of industries and businesses of this new group, we are sure they already contributed a lot to the program during this first seminar. In terms of knowledge and practical input, they thus added value to the group cases and peer-to-peer discussions.

The last months of 2023 suddenly look a lot busier for all of our students, due to pending/outstanding assignments. However, we are confident that they will enjoy their iEMFC journey.

We’ll see you again in March 2024!
