I’ve represented VU University Amsterdam at several university fairs and I have tried to inspire potential students with my stories. Back in the spring of 2008 I was looking for a Master program in consultancy at a good university, in an attractive city and in a country with many nice places to visit. Quite a few requirements, but I did find the best solution. It is exactly this solution I want to present to all the other students who have the same high requirements as me: VU University Amsterdam.
The Master of Business Administration has a great selection of topics and I could attend lectures together with a large group of students, but also participate in seminars while working in smaller groups. We took part in business cases, visited companies, worked on the red sofas while overlooking the Zuid-As skyscrapers that inspired us. Moreover, it’s the university where you can learn things from business people who are not just teaching but are really sharing their daily experiences.
VU University Amsterdam gathered students from around the world and made us mingle with the Dutch ones. There are many students’ associations which organize activities to bring us all together. VU University Amsterdam is the place where you make lifetime friends with different nationalities.
The Netherlands are so unique with its all-time story of being built under the sea level. You can either visit cheese known cities, walk in the harbors, stay on the beach, canal cruising and many other activities all around the country.
Amsterdam is that kind of city you can never hate even when it rains. It gives you the exact energy for the amazing night life and the moderate peace for the day light.
These are just few reasons why my Master’s life was amazing and I’ll always be happy to share more of my stories (just leave a reply!). I’m happy about the choice I’ve made and I’m grateful to be a VU alumna.
