I am very thankful for the time I spent at IMI. It was an inspiration for my entrepreneurship. There is not a single day that I do not quote Professor Gavin Caldwell... Furthermore, studying and living in such a diverse community made me a better manager of my international team. Learning marketing for specific international markets has helped me to form a Kai Sushi meal experience for the local Swiss market.
