15th edition MIM 2016/2017
Sara Lopes Figueiredo (Portugal)
Being part of the MIM program was really an amazing opportunity and such a valuable and personal experience for me. First, I had the chance of getting in touch with students from several nationalities, whom I really connect with. Second, the sharing of knowledge and experiences with Professors from all over the world, from Portugal to Jordan, to Vietnam to Japan and so on. Most of these qualified Professors have gained experienced working for international companies and were willing to friendly share their most valuable practices and teach us how to do business around the world, considering the different cultures and backgrounds.
These master’s academic subjects are all interconnected, therefore there is a continuous studying and common link all year long. Because it is also a very practical master, I learned how to think and connect ideas and actually put into practice through group assignments.
This master in International Management was definitely the right choice for furthering my studies and gave me the tolls to help me developing an international career. Also, with the abroad study trips provided by this master, it gave me an amazing network of great people and friends that I will carry with me. I had the opportunity to go to India, and study and connect with Indian colleagues, which was an additional experience which I will always remember.

My thoughts about the programme:
Attending the MIM programme was without a doubt an excellent decision for me, both academically and professionally. Not only was this a great opportunity to network with international students, but I was also granted the privilege of learning from Professors visiting from Japan, Jordan, Poland and France, just to name a few countries.
What was the most valuable experience?
Interning in Shanghai, China was the most valuable experience to me. This opportunity allowed me to practice International Management, first-hand and would not have been possible without having attended the MIM Programme. I not only came out of this experience inspired to move forward, but also based my dissertation on data collected throughout my internship, where I worked as a Junior Business Development Manager.
How did it contributed for your professional and personal life?
The global classroom experience, and tutorials provided during my dissertation preparation, along with the opportunity of interning in Asia, inevitably enabled me to feel knowledgeable and confident enough to experience the reality of what International Management truly meant; from a practical and workday perspective. Today, I am proud to say I manage a European Team and feel stronger than ever to continue to develop myself along with any project I am involved in, thanks to the MIM Team!

"Joining the MIM program has definitely been a rewarding experience, since it has helped me to attract great opportunities in the job market, and to meet many international students and Professors.
In this program students will be able to improve their soft skills and analytical skills, through a module based course structure with a very practical and international aim, with many practical cases and group work, and there is also the opportunity to go through a Double Degree program while studying in another country during the second year. If you are aiming for an international career, the MIM program is a great choice."
