University of Maastricht – Executive MBA programme

Maastricht Modular Executive MBA students in South Africa

University Maastricht - GroupThe Modular Executive MBA programme of Maastricht University School of Business and Economics (SBE) offers students the possibility to go abroad for an International Week.

During the MBA International Week in South Africa, students get a change to identify the business opportunities and challenges the country faces. We believe that the best way to achieve this is by fully immersing the students into the country.

Besides inspiring lectures, company visits, cultural excursions, an important part of the experience is to visit a township and meet the inspiring Kamamma’s and Bhuti’s from Dreamcatcher Foundation.

By talking to each other, both students and the Kamamma’s get the chance to learn from one another and it enables our MBA students to get a better understanding of South Africa and it’s challenges.

We certainly want to continue our collaboration with Dreamcatcher and explore if there are ways to create an even greater learning value for students and the people from Dreamcatcher.

University Maastricht - CookingThis is what the Modular Executive MBA students from Maastricht said about Dreamcatcher and the Kamamma’s:

  • “Perfect visit. We were proud to be part of your family and your home and have great respect for what you have done and accomplished!”
  • “I loved it. The stories, welcoming, friendliness, openness is inspiring. I admire how you and the Kamamma ‘s fight and build your life. You can be proud of that.”
  • “It got very clear why this is an important project.  The optimism of the people involved and their hospitality was hart-warming.”
  • “Actually above expectations.  I genially enjoyed the openness of the locals in the township.”
  • “The hospitality and warmness of the two women and their families was inspiring.  Dreamcatcher should be more known.”
  • “The Kamamma’s are very open about their own struggle.  It gave a very real insight in this part of your society.”
