'The eight months I spent at ITMMA were unique. It was an invaluable experience.
Since all of the professors and guest lecturers are specialists in the transportation field, they bring a wealth of knowledge and practical experience into the classroom. I must say that ITMMA is the right place for a bright future.'
Xavier Alfonsi, France
'My eagerness to learn something new was very motivating and was rewarded by the quality of the teaching staff. What I will remember and use in my professional career is the implementation of the tools used to access a transport business situation. When driving every day from Brussels to Antwerp and arriving very early in the cold and dark mornings, there always was a cup of coffee and a warm welcome from the staff. This certainly was a kind of 'petit plus' that made the difference. Qui aurait pensé qu'un Français de Bourgogne parti étudier le chinois à Lyon, travailler à Paris puis en Chine, puis aux Pays-Bas, arriverait un jour en Belgique pour faire un Master en anglais dans le transport enseigné dans une université anversoise irait travailler dans un cabinet fédéral à Bruxelles.'
Hock Nguan Lim, Singapore
'After working for a couple of years in the information technology environment, I was looking for an innovative transportation course to further my career in the area of research. The MTMM course definitely provided me the necessary added value I needed. Indeed, the programme has surpassed my expectations both academically and socially. It was an investment which I will never regret.'
Panagiotis Balafoutis, Greece
'Shipping and transport flows in the veins of the people here. My bet is that I will never again meet so many interesting people and learn so much in such a short period of time. It just makes you think about signing in for another year's course!'
James Mwayayi, Kenya
'The programme has enabled me to acquire first-class maritime skills. The learning environment was very conducive and interesting with both the professors/lecturers and fellow students being cooperative and always ready to assist. The ITMMA staff members are worthy a special pat on their backs. I have never seen a team like this. They are the best out of any best you will come across.'
