What alumni think of the part-time master's program MMCM

 “As a marketer, I’m constantly responding to new market developments and innovations. Marketing is more than simply a set of tools or techniques that you employ. It involves a broader take on the whole organization. The part-time Master of Marketing & Customer Management (MMCM) has taught me to make connections using a more strategic approach. As I am placing things in a broader perspective, I produce better analyses. I use those in meetings and to inform decisions. This has allowed me to take both myself and my organization to a higher level.” 
Sophieke Verhoeven, Director Marketing & Digital (CMO) at PSA Financial Services Nederland BV
