I love the environment, the top-notch researchers and the support structure for graduate programmes, especially for PhD. Proud Witsie!
Great camaraderie in the whole MMFI class of 2014.
How fabulous to be treated like my opinions mattered and to be exposed to fascinating classroom discussion with a whole bunch of really sharp people. That is how I remember my year studying the HDPM (as it was called then) in 1987. Loet Douwes-Dekker was an absolute maestro in challenging the views of the class…
I had asked Prof Patrick McGraw to borrow his teaching notes to copy, intending to return it the following week. Over the weekend my car was stolen, with his notes, my course materials, and text books. Thank you to Douglas Jung and friends who helped me with copies of their files so that I could prepare for the exams. The MBA program taught me that you can survive any hardship if you have a strong support network.
We were the first class to complete this course part-time. A real challenge and motivated me to become a life long learner.
