Sharon Postma from the Netherlands
Why did you choose the Master’s programme in Managing People, Knowledge and Change at Lund University?
“I was in London for the last part of my Bachelor’s in International Hospitality Management, and wanted to continue combining studies with international adventures. When looking at universities throughout Scandinavia, the Master’s in Managing People, Knowledge and Change caught my eye. The reason I chose this area is due to the fact that I was intrigued by the way the classes are organised and structured.
I took a leap of faith and waited for the next application period, even though I had to postpone my Master’s studies for a year. I have definitely not regretted my decision after getting accepted to the programme and arriving in Lund!”
What is the programme like?
“The Master's programme is a great opportunity to become more critical and develop the ability to look at the world through different 'glasses'. Topics such as knowledge management, organisational development, corporate social responsibility and leadership have provided me with new insights and a different perspective on the world, and I am sure that I can use this in the future in both my career as well as my personal life.
My class is the perfect example of a knowledge-sharing class and everyone is willing to help and support each other and share good articles or other study-related material. Throughout the year we have worked together in international and interdisciplinary groups for different projects, through which we got to know each other better. My classmates have been super engaged to make this a great year together, both in class and outside of the University. We are graduating soon, and I am very curious to see where we will all be in a couple of years! My plans are gaining experience within international and diverse teams related to change management for the coming years, and I am planning to start my own company in the future.”
