What did you enjoy the most while studying at IWC?
“Networking with people from across the world who have different backgrounds and experience yet share similar interests; the scope and areas of application for IWRM; the professionalism and expertise (both students and lecturers etc.) and the field trips. The program has undoubtedly developed me both as a person and professionally, which has added in my career perspective and approach to water management and management in general. It has allowed me to gain better research skills, which are extremely important and it gave me tools and perspectives which I would otherwise not have experienced. All of these have aided in my career development. In the end, the program far exceeded my expectations. I have been a part of other Masters programs and, in comparison, the IWC’s MIWM program was fantastic and I am a strong advocate in its promotion and endurance.”
