As a consultant for Capgemini Invent for over two years now, looking back on my student life brings back fun memories.
I started IBA in 2011 and was extremely active in terms of doing committees. Eventually I did a board year at Asset, where I took the opportunity to improve the programme. Looking back, that is without a
doubt the highlight of my time in Tilburg. Largely my work remained invisible, but it was the perfect way to give back to the programme and help students.
IBA proved not only to be fun, but also a good starting point of my career. Nowadays, I still use plenty of what was taught in my everyday work, yet the biggest lesson was working with a wide set of students. Presently, I also cannot always choose who I work with or for, but I’m prepared to deal with these situations in a proper way.
After IBA, the tech nerd in me became interested in the hype around data science, so I decided to study the master Data Science: Business & Governance, which was back then newly offered in Tilburg. I decided it was time to increase my focus on hard skills rather than soft skills and beRead more »

My name is Boyd Vosters and I am currently 22 years of age. Before I moved to Tilburg at the start of my Bachelor IBA, I lived in Reusel (NB). During my bachelor IBA, I went on exchange to the city of Exeter in the UK. Studying at their Business School was a great experience, and I had a great time traveling throughout the UK. After I graduated for my bachelor in the summer of 2018, I faced a decision point.
This relates to the fact that I was active within Asset | International Business & Management for almost three years. I started with the Promotion Committee in 2015. The year after, I was fortunate to organize the first Ski Trip of Asset | IB&M. Since skiing is my biggest passion, it was great to organize the trip for 44 participants as a Chairman together with the committee to Saint Francois Longchamp. After the Ski Trip, I joined the Lustrum and Almanak Committee. This committee work was split up by my exchange, and upon my return, I assisted the Lustrum with the operational tasks. Additionally, I became the Chairman of the Recruitment Dinner in my final year as an active member.Read more »

Why a board year?
After my exchange, I alsoRead more »
