  • Bart de Volder
    Consultant KMB Corporate Finance BV
    "The program offered the deepening of my valuation knowledge, which made it possible to specialize more on valuation issues. For instance Real Option theory and Monte Carlo simulation are useful extensions. Mainly the practical courses were very challenging and could be used in daily practice immediately. Due to the quality of the teachers, with both scientific and practical backgrounds, and the interaction within the group the level of the courses were even more instructive. The program extended my knowledge as a whole and helps me in my professional life."
  • Hester Tak
    Hoofd Operations LUMC, LURIS, LEH B.V. & LUMC Participaties B.V.

    "As a biomedical scientist working in Technology transfer, I joined MBV to learn about specific topics such as valuing intellectual property and companies we have in the holding. However, I found that the broad range of topics in the program were just as applicable in my daily work and not only could I directly implement what I had learned, but it also taught me to think more creatively in finding solutions to challenging questions. In spite of having no real financial background or experience, I had no problems in following the lectures or exams due to quality teaching materials and quality staff. In addition, the structure of the program was very useful to exchange ideas but also to learn from my classmates and their experiences in the field. Having completed the course, I can honestly say I have really enjoyed learning about this expertise and I have learned more than I ever expected."
