Master in Management - Celebrating 30 years

“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, …”
Charles Dickens, A Tale of Two Cities

30 years ago the first MBA class started at RUCA. In 2001 the program changed into the Master in Management (MIM) at (U)AMS. 30 classes and 770 alumni later the program is still attracting young talents to become the managers of the future.

Time for a celebration!

Join us on 20 April @ 5:00 PM for the festive kick off the the MIM 30 year celebration. We have put together a whole year of festivities for all MBA / MIM alumni, packed with surprises and fun and interesting events.
