The Tribe's Reviews

 
  JAKE – 24, USA, machine learning background   This was the best experience of my life! The people are all so different, but since we were all handpicked, the chemistry and friendships were incredible and hopefully long lasting. Traveling was obviously wicked!! I did the SE Asia tour and loved the places we stayed at... Bali was the best. The education is whatever you make of it, work hard and get a lot back. If you are more lax on the learning part than you probably won't get much in professional skills, as well as not enjoy your days when the whole tribe is studying and you're just chilling by yourself. I personally did the Programming course, and have learned a remarkable amount that is helping me to change careers and my life!

  TERESIA – 25, Kenya, startups background   I knew I needed a change , an new aspect to put me on track to what I really wanted to achieve. The Nomad MBA turned out to be the best experience and life changing moment. Achieving personal and professional growth but mostly having the support of the tribe and feeling part of a bigger family made it greater than I first thought .Had an amazing 3 months in Southeast Asia.

  CHLOE – 31, Australia, IT consulting background   My 3 months on the Nomad MBA in SE Asia was the best 3 months of my life. We were more than just a community, we became a family. Everyone in the tribe were carefully selected and Harry, Zeeger & Andy did such a wonderful job. I have travelled quite a lot, but i have never had an experience before where I've been able to travel, learn new skills, plus be encouraged to grow along side 22 other like minded people from all over the world. This was definitely what i needed to step out of my comfort zone and change my life for the better. Now, instead of being stuck in a corporate office, i can choose to work anywhere i want in the world. For those thinking of applying, the program is about learning new skills and growth, whilst travelling with a support network. It’s hard work and pushes you to do things you may not feel comfortable doing. That’s the point. So if you put the effort in and are willing to change for the better, you will see the benefits. If you just want a holiday to travel then this isn’t for you.  I will never forget the experiences i had with the tribe and would do it all over again in a heartbeat. I miss everyone so much already.

  GWEN – 28, France, finance consulting background   I felt unfulfilled, I could not resume my sense of achievement to a higher salary or a promotion, nor did I feel that the appreciation of my peers lifted me no longer. I was lost but knew that what I was doing then was not right for me.  The Nomad MBA accidentally found my way, I had not yet thought of next steps besides looking for a different job but when I saw the alternative they were offering I applied, with my heart, this was not an other job application, they are not looking for qualifications, they are looking for personalities.  I was taken. Flew over to Bali and got it all started. By now, two weeks past our good byes I can truly say that this experience has equipped me personally with the mindset to not fall back to being an unfulfilled individual.  You get what you put in it, and by this it can be many different things: completing several courses to build your new profile, networking to start building a portfolio of clients to take you forward on your digital nomad path, taking the time for yourself to reflect at last. The latter is what truly changed me which without this group of great people (and I weigh my words) would not have been possible.

  SHAKILA – 26, Canada, digital marketing background   A truly surreal experience. I went all in with this and had no idea what would come from it. The concept was exhilarating and I felt alive just reading about it. From the beginning, this was about the people for me- I was interested to see how this group of people would blend together as a community and what that would look like.  Fast forward to Day 1- Our dynamic was seamless even as strangers and this made for an inspirational, motivational and unforgettable atmosphere. Our tribe's authenticity, open-mindedness, teaching, sharing, support and of course the dancing made all the difference- thank you so much for all of it. HUGE thanks to The Nomad MBA for the learning, the places and bringing our tribe to LIFE!!! I feel so lucky to have been apart of this and cannot wait to see where the program and our tribe goes from here.

  TIFF – 23, Australia, social media marketing background   From the moment I heard about the program, I knew these guys were onto something. After completing the first trip with them in Southeast Asia, they have exceeded all expectations. It was a truly unique and incredible experience to be brought together with a bunch of passionate and inspiring people while being able to travel and experience things that challenged us and helped us grow. Forever grateful for this opportunity and I’ll recommend this to anyone who’s looking for a sea change or wanting to transition into a better, purpose-driven career.

  MELISSA, 33, Switzerland, NGOs background   After 3 months of travelling with awesome people, of learning and sharing, I can say that the Nomad MBA experience induced massive change in each of us. We all came from different backgrounds and for different reasons, and received warm and sensible support to go forward, each in our own way, as members of this community. This was a truly unique and life-changing experience.

  JULIANA – 32, Brazil, corporate marketing background   The Nomad MBA is exactly the kind of experience that you must live - living with an unique group of people while traveling to incredible places and, of course, learning something that you are going to use professionally. It was a life changing journey and I couldn’t be more happy to be part of the first tribe

  TORSTEN – 24, Netherlands, engineering postgrad background   I did this trip and to this day I'm having trouble summarizing the experience in a few sentences. I learned at a very quick pace, had an amazing community around me and on a side note I happened to have traveled through south east Asia. This is a must for anyone who wants to grow and understands the power of community.
