“Thank you very much for tonight’s tutorial, Prof Dorfman. I was very highly impressed by your tutoring and mentorship of course 601 and how you dissected it for all of us to understand. At the end, it made very much sense to me and the picture was a lot clearer. I feel top-class lecturers/tutors of the IBR makes the Global MBA so unique and sets it wide apart from all other MBAs!”
