Fred Vogels had a status update on Facebook 1 week ago

Deze jonge man Marc Vogels heeft zijn studie MBA aan de UVA afgesloten met een 8,2 voor zijn scriptie. Als ouders Hilke Ingelse en ik zijn we apetrots op hem. Wat een prestatie om een Master in Business Administration in één jaar te halen. Fantastisch! Super wat hij heeft gepresteerd!! Chapeau!!
