Experiences of past course participants

“(The course) was useful because I was able to get both inspiration and tools to implement in my organisation. I really liked that we had practical exercise to think how to implementwhat we learnt back in our organisations.”


“I feel like this summer school managed to provide a high academic quality and create a nice atmosphere at the same time where we had the chance to be informalwhich for me is a great combination.”



“Very friendly, warm and helpful staff who planned and led the course. I felt very welcome and the efforts of also making this experience about spending free time inBudapest with the group and the staff (all the activities, and especially the dinner) made it just a very enjoyable week and I am very thankful for that.”


"Fantastic diversity, fantastic facility, fantastic line-up of instructors."

"Great presentations. Exceptional resource persons. Rich course content. Conducive classroom."

"The quality of faculty and resources was excellent, and the faculty were resourceful and willing to share their experience. There was evidence that the whole course was organised very well in advance because presenters had all their stuff at fingertips. Time management was excellent."
