One day left…

The last few days were quite busy for the participants and the committee. Even our supervisors struggle to do everything they want to do before we leave.

Today we had the preliminary presentations and the goodbye drink. The presentations were interesting and friends and family came in large numbers to hear them. With just a little over 24 hours the moment of departure comes near…

Business Case MTénV and PHBM

Yesterday, we visited PHBM and MTénV for an intriguing business case. At first we went to see the project ‘de Entree’ at Amsterdam central station. After that, we discussed a case concerning a conflict between a contractor and local government. We had a great time and we really want to thank both companies for their hospitality!


Business Case APPM

appm-fotoLast week the American Ambitions Group visited Dutch company APPM for an interesting business case. APPM involved us in one of their projects about Electric Transportation at the Dutch airport Schiphol. 96 of the taxi’s driving around Schiphol are now fully electric Tesla’s and APPM played a key part in realizing this.

We would like to thank APPM for their hospitality and their enthusiastic presentation.

Wine Tasting

29069120970_aa3606252b_kLast week we had our final teambuilding activity. Armand Dohmen (husband of our supervisor Marjolein Dohmen-Janssen) organized a perfect wine tasting experience. During the two hour class of Armand we tasted six different wines from all over the world. As regular beer drinkers, wine tasting was more difficult for us than a regular mathematics class. Full concentration was needed in questions as: What are you smelling? What is that taste? How is the aftertaste? Armand gave a wonderful class and thought us some awesome skills that we can bring into practice in California.
