Why Tilburg?

Holding a bachelor from Greece, I wanted to meet a new culture and have the experience of studying abroad, at a top university. Tilburg University is among the top economic universities in Europe, offering one year masters. I thought that the quality of Tilburg University certainly would fulfill my high requirements and expectations, while the low cost of studying fees and the perspective to live and work in Tilburg enforced this decision.

First impression of Tilburg University

The quality of the facilities and the library are great. There are plenty of computers you can work on also I noticed the green surroundings of Tilburg University. I think that the facilities of Tilburg University are one of the strongest points of the university.

Tilburg city

Coming from the second biggest city of Greece, Tilburg seems to me quite small. It does not offer much itself, but the position of the city allows you to travel easily around. Moreover, the fact that it is a small city makes your transportation and adaptation in the city easy. Coming from a different country these points are quite important for me.

Career aspirations

Being specialized in the international aspects of business and management, I would like to find a position in an international company which will allow me to apply the skills and knowledge that I acquired. I think that I have a strong, clearly identifiable professional profile for the job market, increasing my chances of finding employment.
