Teambuilding Session – Cohort 5 (January 20th, 2017)
Before the launching of their first seminar of “International Public Affairs and CSR”, our brand new cohort got to know each other on January 20th, 2017. Their first day in our executive MBA has been spent between Liège and Eupen. The challenge of the “get out room” has been followed by an improvisation workshop and a drink at the Kloster bar together with the Cohort 4, starting their 3rd and last module in the OpenBordersMBA.
No doubt, this launching announces a promising experience for the fifth cohort!
