Why do you work at EUC?
I love to work at EUC because it is the same kind of study which I did for my bachelor degree. I truly believe in the small-scale personal approach of the University Colleges in the Netherlands and I love to see students develop and flourish here. At EUC we take a holistic approach to learning and development, lessons learned outside the classroom are just as valued as insights gained from pouring over the study materials. That doesn't mean our students don't study hard - work hard, play hard seems to be an appropriate motto. The strategy project I am currently working on is aimed at helping progress EUC from a start-up to professional consolidated organisation.
