Philippus von Neree, Graduate MSc in International Management
"I chose Trinity Business School's MSc International Management programme based on my interest in the challenges of an increasingly globalised world. It added a great variety of managerial expertise to my economical knowledge that I accumulated in my undergraduate studies. Furthermore, the unique atmosphere of cultural diversity within the class combined with a lecture in Shanghai expanded my awareness of the challenges to internationally operating corporations by a huge degree. Overall, I am very happy to realise that the course supported me with the exact skillset needed to perform well in my role that followed at BearingPoint, where I planned and drove forward large post-merger-integration projects as a management consultant."
