Alumni testimonial by M.A. Josaphat Mshighati, Tanzania "I never knew how practical was the MADM content coverage until I started working as Advisor to Civil Societies (SNV Netherlands Development Organisation) and then Governance Program Coordinator (Oxfam); With UNDP work now I can now use most of the skills from the MADM studies. In mormal sense, you never value something until it helps you handle some circumstancies. Excellent experiences with MADM"

Alumni testimonial by M.A. Vanessa Agnes Dimaano, Philippines "Overall, it was a great learning experience for me. More than the lectures in the classroom, I think the exchange of ideas and experiences with lecturers and classmates enriches one's perspective. The trips to Ruhrgebiet, Berlin and South Africa were cultural immersion. Your scientific approach to research (when we did our field work) has provided me foundation for my other research works"

Alumni testimonial by M.A. Catherine Promise Biira, Uganda "The richest experience I had was the realization that there is so much potential in people that even they themselves may not be aware of. Participating in the program unlocked so much potential in me. It gave me the drive and confidence to come this far and beyond"
