What participants say…

"It's a brilliantly organized course and the business cases really give you a feeling of what it means to run a company as challenging and exciting as Philips, launching products, making budget decisions, creating marketing campaigns, and planning human resource and manufacturing requirements." — Daniela Fleig, now Website Coordinator for Philips Consumer Electronics.


“In addition to giving me the opportunity to prove my talents by solving realistic business cases in a small team of top students, the course also gave me the chance to meet the passionate people behind the brand. Talking to senior management provides you with a true understanding of what Philips is all about and the immense opportunities the company offers to young talent.” — Dragan Oudshoorn, Key Account Sales Manager on a two-year Commercial Development Program at Philips DAP.
