" Working as a freelance consultant is like being a COTS (commercial of-the-shelf); the customer expects that you fit immediately within the organisation. The Executive Master in IT Management gave me the right tools and information to do this. I understand better the changes through which the organisation is going and most important, I understand why those changes are needed. I can focus more on how to implement the changes by spending less time in understanding the "why"."

“Nevertheless my 30 years of IT support experience in major companies like Hewlett-Packard, Merck Sharp & Dohme, Sabam and others, I really enjoyed this Solvay Brussels School’s Executive Master in IT management running over two years. A famous refresh about technology management, methodologies and even communication skills. A rich experience that I intend now to share with others. "
