What the PAUSE scholarship has meant to me!
As a PAUSE alumnus, I studied in 1985 at the Wharton School in Philadelphia. My six months there was a period when I gained knowledge and friends for life. I also learned to understand important cultural differences – how to bridge these and build on that variation. of the views that people with different backgrounds contribute. Throughout my career, I have repeatedly reflected on the experiences I gained at Wharton. I am fully convinced that these have been crucial in meeting the demands I have had and have as a business leader in an international business world. The PAUSE scholarship provided me with a unique opportunity for personal development and represents a milestone of amazing memories and invaluable experience. I have benefited greatly from this in my professional career as well as in my private life.
