"Nijenrode appealed to me because it has very small classes and draws students from all over the world. I didn't want to go somewhere that churns out 500 MBAs a year. It cost me about pounds 10,000 in fees. I borrowed money and used my savings, as well as using my earnings from the project thesis I undertook at the school.
"After the MBA I joined a small Dutch software company for a few months. I had been in touch with a consulting company called Monitor since my Nijenrode days and joined their Amsterdam office, where I worked until a few months ago. I'm now head of the Benelux office of a small UK business consultancy called Conduit Communications.
"The Nijenrode network has been useful to me for business development in the Benelux countries. When you call someone up you get a warm reception. It doesn't get you the job or the deal, but it gets you in the door."Reuse content
