Initially, I was rather determined regarding my future job: I wanted to become an international criminal lawyer. However, now I am not quite sure what I want to be later in life, because IBEB has awakened my interest in the economic aspects of my studies and a more economics related career could also be in the cards for me.

Student International Bachelor Economics and Business Economics

I have chosen to participate in this international programme, because I have completed the International Baccalaureate programme in secondary school. I have also always had great affinity with mathematics and statistics and wanted to continue enhancing my knowledge regarding these particular fields.

Rotterdam was an obvious choice for me to go studying, because of its modern city centre and its bustling business life. Amongst my most favourite spots in Rotterdam would certainly be: the park around the Kralingse Plas, Blaak and the river sides near the Willemsbrug and Erasmusbrug.

Apart from studying I enjoy hanging out with friends and I work as an Ambassador for IBEB.
