EXCHANGE INTERVIEW: MALAYSIA

EXCHANGE INTERVIEW: MALAYSIA

Hi, I’m Ruben and I’m 20 years old. For my exchange semester, I went to Monash University in Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur. An experience to always remember.

What reasons did you have to choose the country/city you went on exchange?

It is the 16th of July 2020, a young enthusiastic student walks into the departure halls of Schiphol, unaware of the marvelous adventure that is waiting for him. It’s nearly a year ago, and I look back on a fantastic life-changing experience. 16th July, the day that I went on exchange to Monash University in Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur. An exchange destination that had it all, warm climate, cheap cost of living, and an airport that connects the country to the most remote countries. Nevertheless, I have to admit I had a hard time making the selection of an exchange destination. I was lucky to be in the first selection round, enabling me to choose from the partner universities all around the globe. However, having that many exciting options made the choice even harder. In the previous years I already traveled to some of the Asian countries (Thailand and Indonesia) so I was already a bit familiar with the culture and climate in suchRead more »

Master Student Interview: Finance

Master Student Interview: Finance

My name is Lisa Cornelissen, I am 22 years old, and currently I am finishing the Master Finance at Tilburg University. Prior to this Master I did the Bachelor International Business Administration, also at Tilburg University. 

A year ago, I had to make the decision on which Master to pursue. Making this decision was quite difficult for me, as I am a very indecisive person and my interests are broad. Nevertheless, I always had affinity with numbers, and therefore knew that a more quantitative Master would fit me best. I was doubting between the Master Accounting and the Master Finance for a long time, but in the end I decided upon Finance, as I preferred the Finance courses over the Accounting courses in my Bachelor, and also because I had the idea that this Master would challenge me the most.  

So in August I, and around 250 other students, started the Master. The first unit (7 weeks) consists of three core courses: Advanced Corporate Finance, Investment Analysis, and Empirical Methods, meaning that every student follows the same courses. AdvancedRead more »

Master Student Interview: Strategic Management (Entrepreneurship)

Master Student Interview: Strategic Management (Entrepreneurship)

My name is Britt and I am currently following the Strategic Management master. I started my master in February, which means I am following the Entrepreneurship track. Besides my study, I work as a student assistant for the Academic Director of MSc Strategic Management. Last year, I also became an active member at Asset | Strategy & Logistics, where I organised the Consultancy Days together with Asset | IB&M. Currently, I am doing a full-time board year at Asset | Strategy & Logistics, so have paused my study. But I will continue my master in September and at this time I will start working on my thesis. 

As I already said before, I am doing the entrepreneurship track of the MSc of Strategic Management. I chose this master because I wanted to get an insight into the current challenges that businesses are facing, such as new innovations or new competitors entering the market. In the master, you learn how to make strategic decisions that determine the long term vision of a company. Often these are decisions that are made by the management team within a company, and it is great to get insight into how these decisions should be made. ItRead more »

Master student interview: Accountancy

Master student interview: Accountancy

Hey all!

I am Koen Salet, currently 22 years old and following the master’s in Accountancy. If you are a member of Asset | IB&M, you might know me from the committees I participated in during the last couple of years. I started in 2016 as a writer of the blog committee, followed by a year as the chairman of the activities committee, and last but not least, I was a member of the first ‘Manager for a Day’ event. In between the last two committees I also went on exchange to Finland, a time I will genuinely never forget in my life.

As said, right now I am following the master’s program in Accountancy at Tilburg University. Before I started this master’s program, I finished the bachelor business economics, also at Tilburg University. I already liked all of the accountancy courses that were offered in the bachelor’s program, and that is the main reason I chose to continue with the master’s in Accountancy. Also, I was not really interested in the other masters that Tilburg University has to offer, so it was a clear choice for me.

Exchange Interview: Singapore

Exchange Interview: Singapore

Hi! My name is Ellen van Och, 21 Years old and I am in my third year of the bachelor IBA. Last semester, I had the chance to go on exchange to Singapore and I really loved it! 

What reasons did you have to choose the country/city you went on exchange to?

In 2018, I joined the ITC to Singapore and Hong Kong with Asset | IB&M. I immediately fell in love with the city: it is super clean, modern, safe, and it’s always hot (which I like)! Besides, Singapore is a global business hub, and as an IBA student, this was very interesting to me as well. When I was there, I was already imagining myself living or studying here. One year later, I decided I wanted to go back to Singapore for my exchange! 

There are many different places to visit in Singapore, so it was never boring living here. My favorite places to visit were Gardens by The Bay, Haji Lane, Chijmes, and Clarke Quay. Besides Singapore being a great city itself, it is located right in the middleRead more »
