Everything you need to know about the programme
Through the YEL programme, I have gained a multitude of experiences, skills, and connections that have been instrumental in my personal and professional growth. One aspect that I found hugely beneficial was the breakfast meetings with external experts. We had the privilege of engaging in intimate discussions, gaining insights, and exchanging ideas with professionals from various fields. Their diverse perspectives and expertise broadened our understanding and challenged us to think innovatively.
