Have a look at what some former students have to say about our MADM Programme:
M.A. Catherine Promise Biira, Uganda:
"The richest experience I had was the realization that there is so much potential in people that even they themselves may not be aware of. Participating in the programme unlocked so much potential in me. It gave me the drive and confidence to come this far and beyond."
M.A. Phaustine Wabwire, Kenya:
“I would greatly hail the partnership between IEE and UWC. This for me was the best development collaboration in practice. The opportunity to study at both institutions greatly widened my outlook on both academic and professional circles.”
M.A. Laura Gorety Crespo Benítez, Mexico:
"The programme widened a lot my oportunities to get a development-related job and I really got some abilities and knowledge that not many people in my country have related to designing a project or international cooperation."
M.A. Edwin Msewa, Malawi:
"It was one of my best experiences and I miss it a lot. I wish I could turn back the time."
M.A. Abdul Malek Halimi, Afghanistan:
"I learned a lot especially in the field of development management. That is why at present I am working very smoothly with NCPR and analyzing policy related issues that are very important for Afghanistan's short and long term economic development."
M.A. Josaphat Mshighati, Tanzania:
"I never knew how practical the MADM content coverage was until I started working as Advisor to Civil Societies (SNV Netherlands Development Organisation) and then Governance Programme Coordinator (Oxfam); with UNDP work I can now use most of the skills from the MADM studies. In mormal sense, you never value something until it helps you handle some circumstances. Excellent experiences with MADM."
M.A. Andres Gustavo Lopez Hoyos, Peru:
"It was an excellent experience as it mixed theoretical and practical components."
M.A. Vanessa Agnes Dimaano, Philippines:
"Overall, it was a great learning experience for me. More than the lectures in the classroom, I think the exchange of ideas and experiences with lecturers and classmates enriches one's perspective. The trips to Ruhrgebiet, Berlin and South Africa were cultural immersion. Living in Bochum in itself was cultural immersion. Your scientific approach to research (when we did our field work) has provided me foundation for my other research works."
