"Ik denk dat de meeste studenten van zoiets alleen maar durven dromen. Dat was bij mij toch het geval. Ik was reeds zeer vereerd dat VIB/PICS mijn thesis wilde voordragen bij de preselectie. Dat je mag lezen, in mails en op websites, dat jouw thesis onder de betere van België valt op supply chain gebied, dat was erg leuk. Maar om dan finaal de prijs te winnen, in een hele cinemazaal vol gerespecteerde supply chain professionals, de cheque en spotlights, de mooie woorden van de jury, dat gevoel kan ik amper beschrijven. Natuurlijk is dit de meest ideale stap naar een professionele carrière, zoals ik nu ook gemerkt heb met een stageaanbod bij Ahlers"
