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 »
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 »
