Still inspired after five years!

Brazilian/Italian Diego Magnus, returned to campus to catch up with his 2012 classmates and a special member of this year’s MBA program – his sister.

Arriving home in Brazil makes me reflect how much I already miss my friends. Being back on campus in Lausanne for the IMD MBA 2012 reunion, which happened on Friday and continued over the weekend, inspired a general feeling of “it seems like only yesterday that we finished the program”.

Five years have gone by, but everybody still feels very close, to such a point that attendance was very high – more than 75% of my classmates travelled from their various locations around the world to come to Switzerland.

The weekend was full of intense days, long discussions and updates on family and careers, thoughtful reflections that we all bring back with us. I’m already looking forward to the next two reunions in 2018 and 2019, where we’ll be meeting in Cartagena and Moscow!

Another bonus for this year’s reunion, and one more reason for me to feel super proud: my sister is currently attending the MBA! It was great to have a chance to catch up with her as well. As she now enters the job search phase of the program, I wish her and her class Good Luck in finding their dream jobs and am sure they’ll enjoy the rest of the program!
