Testimonial :

Bredenoord - A power supply company had Ishebo Twijukye from Wittenborg University as an Intern student!
“What struck us was Ishebo’s willingness - no matter the task, he took it on. Interns of other universities can often be picky when it comes to tasks and assignments. Ishebo's theoretical level of understanding was more than sufficient and working with him was a pleasant experience. He impressed us with his connections in Uganda and Tanzania and was willing to do other tasks outside his intern assignments. We are open to more interns from Wittenborg University.” – Zef Jansen, Export Department – Bredenoord.
