“MLP has helped me better manage a wider range of mining activities, not just
technical. The faculty are from the real world, not just strictly lecturers. When
being taught something from people who have actually experienced what they
are teaching, it adds credibility and improves student buy-in. It was really 
powerful working with the cohort and gaining experience and ideas from such
a qualified group of people.”
