Amin NooriEconomics has always been a passion of mine, and after my second gap year from high school, I was ready for a new and exciting journey. IBEB has allowed me to really look at everyday occurrences in a more rational sense. Frequent reminders of how essential macro and micro-economics are, can be found in all parts of day-to-day life. This is what really interests me and what attracted me to this subject. The past year, I wanted to get more engaged with the international community at the Erasmus University. Therefore, after application, I attained the position of Vice-President at ESN. It has been a very fulfilling year, organizing events and creating a welcoming environment for international students during their stay in the Netherlands. My time so far at Erasmus School of Economics has been amazing. I’ve made lifelong friends and tried things I never thought I would. The city of Rotterdam has truly become my home away from home. Its modern architecture and great international vibe truly allow for it to live up to its nickname, “Manhattan on the Maas’’. Lastly, I want to point out that being part of Erasmus School of Economics opens doors for many opportunities. It is up to you to go and grab them!

Selma ZekajEconomics is truly all around us, present in every aspect of our lives and it is for this reason I chose to study Economics and Business Economics. You learn everything from what determines the price of goods and services to why the average standards of living vary so widely within and between countries. What convinced me to study in Rotterdam is the international environment that Erasmus University has created. You get used to be surrounded by people with different points of view, so you learn how to adapt and think outside the box. Especially in the field of business this is a truly significant asset. Lectures at Erasmus School of Economics are always interesting. It is not only about explaining plain theory, but also putting your knowledge into practice by using real world examples. This programme has a lot to offer to students who want to further develop themselves by choosing a minor, Honours courses, a semester abroad etc. All these give you an idea of your future desired career path. Fortunately, it is not all studying books and theory. I am really enjoying my time in Rotterdam. This vibrant and modern city has so much to offer. You can go on a shopping spree, enjoy some excellent food and visit a range of attractions in and around the city centre.
