Must to Do: Business Documentaries to Watch

While having free time we tend to focus on our hobbies and spend our time watching unmeaningful movies and series that barely contribute something to our academic or career development. However, lucky for us, recently a lot of film production companies have created various documentaries…

Master Student Interview: Marketing Analytics

Master Student Interview: Marketing Analytics

Hello! My name is Sophie van Esch, I am 23 years old, and I am currently finishing the Master Marketing Analytics at Tilburg University. Prior, I studied the Bachelor Business Economics at Tilburg University after which I had really no idea what Master I should choose. Therefore, I decided to start working at an Accountancy firm to gain some work experience and to figure out whether I would like to work in Accountancy. However, I realised that Accountancy was not the direction for me. So, I started to think again about what courses I liked the most during my Bachelor and I went to the Master open day where I talked to several Master students. I realised that I was looking for a combination of both statistics and customer behavior, since I liked both the marketing, mathematics and statistics during my Bachelor. Therefore, Marketing Analytics seemed the perfect combination to me.

“This Master is a great study program with the possibility to choose from a wide variety of electives”

I started the Master Marketing Analytics last September and I am very glad with that decision.Read more »

Master Student Interview: Marketing Management

Master Student Interview: Marketing Management

My name is Max and I am currently following the Marketing Management Master, which I started last September. Besides my study, I work as an online marketeer at a marketing agency specialized in creating Google Ads campaigns and website design for SMEs. When I started my master, I also became an active member at Asset | Marketing, where I was part of the study trip committee. Currently, I am doing a full-time board year as vice-chairman at Asset | Marketing. This means I have paused my study for now, which I will continue in February 2021. In February, I will start writing my thesis and finish my last courses. 

In 2015, I started my bachelor International Business Administration at the Tilburg University. During the bachelor I noticed I enjoyed courses like Decision making in Marketing and Marketing Management a lot more than the more numerical courses like Financial Accounting and Statistics. This made me realize I wanted to know more about the ‘human’ side of companies. After postponing my bachelor thesis by half a year, I finished my bachelor in 2019. By that time, I wasRead more »

Master Student Interview: Strategic Management (consultancy)

Master Student Interview: Strategic Management (consultancy)

My name is Ties and I’m a 5th year student, who is planning to graduate next January. I have started the Consultancy Track of the master Strategic Management last September. Next to my studies I have been active at Asset | IB&M, Vidar and I did a board year at the Economic Business weeks Tilburg. During this board year I learnt more about my (professional) interests, which allowed me to make a solid master choice. 

I decided to follow the Strategic Management program for three reasons. First, I consider myself to be a generalist, not a specialist. The key courses of the program are aimed at teaching a little bit about a lot, while later courses have stronger focus on teaching specific skills. In this way, you are educated to become an individual who is capable of maintaining an eye on ‘the big picture’, while also being able of diving into details. Second, I developed a particular interest in consultancy during my board year. I think it’s very interesting to work on projects for a wide variety of companies, as each new project forces one to dive into a completely new challenge. Third, I prefer practical courses over purely theoretical ones. StrategicRead more »

Master student interview: International Management

Master student interview: International Management

What it is like to be an International Management Masters Student… 

My name is Charlie Mhaitang. I am 24 years old. Born in Thailand, raised in the Netherlands. I am a master’s student studying “International Management” at Tilburg University. 

In my professional career, I want to help firms expand their businesses to foreign countries. So, I chose this master for that purpose. Furthermore, I also like the fact that the coursework offers a variety of subjects from different fields such as finance and marketing. It is important for a manager to be able to think strategically on all divisions of a company.

“I like the fact that the coursework offers a variety of subjects from different fields such as finance and marketing”

The class size of the program is small, consisting of about 60 students. Which I find very pleasant as I can interact with my classmates and lecturers more easily. What had also led me to choose this program was that both the master and university are highly ranked in prominent ranking lists such as Times Higher Education and the Financial Times.

The program offers courses that teach the “why, how, and where” firms internationalize, along with other important management subjects such asRead more »
