" SIMConnect is what elevates the SIMC master from an academically outstanding master's program to an incredibly close and dynamic community for life. The fact that we have many alumni still joining some of our biggest events shows what a close connection they still have with SIMConnect. By joining SIMC, you become a part of the ever-growing, but still incredibly close SIMC familiy, a decision I have never regretted. "

" SIMC is not only a place to gain knowledge and a paper qualification; it's a program which enables you to make experiences beyond classroom. During SIMC I met my Phocus co-founder, spent an exciting semester in Santiago de Chile and made incredible experiences as co-head of the Entrepreneurship Avenue. "

" As head of the Corporate Department I had the opportunity to connect our student community with companies and start-ups - the workshops, site visits and coachings supported us in preparing for our life as young professionals. But for me SIMConnect is about more than business - it is about a great community of students and friendships that last long beyond the Master's program. "
