"Studying IBA at Tilburg University really offered me the opportunity to study what I like. As a Dutch student being in an international program gives so much additional value to your study. You improve your English and get to know a lot about other cultures. At IBA you get different business topics so you can find out what you like the most and later on specialize yourself in a certain field!"

"What attracted me most to Tilburg University was its slogan “Understanding Society”. If you really do aspire to creating any type of social impact, you can incorporate this way of thinking in what you study. I met purpose-driven people that share this same interest as myself and as cheesy as it might sound, it really is empowering to know that you are not alone and can actually make a change together."
