    DTU Dopenhagen 🇩🇰

    March 18, 7:15 AM. The sleepy yet excited MGM group was ready for departure. Destination? Copenhagen! More specific, we were heading for the Danish Technical University where we would step out of our business comfort zone and be exposed to the wonderful (and complex) world of technology.

    Here's to you, MGM

    Our days are counted. Am I making this sound too dramatic? Maybe. But isn’t it so?! Classes end for MGM this week. All we have left is our study trip to Copenhagen and the accompanying assignment. The Master of Global Management class of 2016-2017 is about to split up.

    When applying for AMS, we were promised that our year at AMS wouldn’t only increase our academic knowledge or improve our hard skills. In accordance with the holistic approach, our year would be more than the sum of our courses. Our AMS experience would also mold us as a person. And sure

    The never ending quest for a job

    Next to our daily classes, presentations, tasks and LCTD-workshops, we also have to look for a job. I am 22, feel like a 12-year old and I have to look for a job…. Some people already have one, other people haven’t even started looking yet and then there are the losers, like me, that are

    Trip to Maastricht

    To start the semester with a bang, the MIM-class went to Maastricht on a European Management Residency. Though it wasn’t that far -it only took us 2 hours to get there- and the seminar was given in Dutch, we were still excited to start the new year with an excursion abroad.

    Apartment Hunting in New York

    After a tiresome couple of days, flying from Brazil back to Belgium, packing up all our belongings and then flying straight to New York (not counting the many frustrations of cancelled flights and lost luggage), we finally arrived at our final destination. We had all been dreaming of this

    In September 2016, we spent the whole week playing ‘the fresh connection game’. We didn’t only learn the basic supply chain concepts, but we also learned how to work with our teammates.

    5 highlights during our trip to Luik

    EARLY BIRDS… NOT! Tuesday morning… Tom, the most dedicated commuter of MIM, left his house, at 4 a.m. to catch the bus at the Van Stalenstraat in Antwerp. At 8 a.m. everyone finally arrived at the bus station (one in a better mood than the other). One thing you should know about the
