Alumni Statement

"With the convergence of telecommunications and IP technology and the ever-increasing share of IT in most business activities, co-ordinating and managing the strategic dimension of as well as the operational interface with the technical side proved to be increasingly difficult.The SME program was exactly what I was looking for. I very much valued the Engineering modules, because they catapulted my knowledge to the forefront 'of it all' by covering a variety of relevant ICT/IT topics giving me a comprehensive overview and enough details to understand how everything works and fits together. And I found the management modules most stimulating as they provided me with a much-needed refresher and update on the latest approaches in a field that will continue to be my core strength."
