Student Anneli Degens about the program:



Educational background

After I had graduated from Sintermeerten College Heerlen, I decided  to study Building Engineering. I looked forward to putting my creativity and passion for designing into practice. However, I soon found out that my love for Economics was still there, so I decided to relocate and complete my Business Economics Bachelor’s degree at Tilburg University. This proved to be the right thing for me because I have now finished this program and I am halfway through my Master’s program in Supply Chain Management. What about my creativity and passion for designing? That matches perfectly within this Master’s program!

Why Tilburg University?

The main reason why I chose Tilburg University is the excellent reputation of the School of Economics. Moreover, I really like the teaching methods and the fact that the lecturers do not see you as just a number. Last but not least, the relatively compact Tilburg University campus made a very good impression on me.

Master in Supply Chain Management

The organizational and strategic sides of my Bachelor’s program of Business Economics were really appealing. The Master’s program of Supply Chain Management is one of the key players in this field. Since designing and implementing theory-based solutions in the supply chain take center stage, it also matches really well with my own interests!

The program is practice-based and diverse. In a short space of time, I have acquired knowledge about various topics in the field of Supply Chain Management, such as production management, distribution management, and purchasing management. The program often makes use of case studies and practical examples. In this way, I learn how to put theory into practice

Campus and facilities

s mentioned before, the campus is one of the reasons why I chose Tilburg University. The campus is compact and all Schools are located within walking distance, something I like very much. The atmosphere on campus is very warm and welcoming; it has an international feel to it. Finally, the facilities on campus include many places where you can study in a quiet environment with little to distract you. There are plenty of computer facilities and nice cafeterias.

Interaction between teachers and students

The program offers many and diverse topics and the teachers are enthusiastic and experienced. Interaction between teachers and students is a key element. The program often entails  working in groups, so knowledge exchange is highly stimulated. In this way, you get to know many students from the Netherlands and as well as from abroad.

Career aspirations

After finishing my studies, I would like a job in the field of Supply Chain Management. I have not yet made a decision as to the many different positions in this field. Since Supply Chain Management is genuinely international, the odds are I am going to work for an international company. The idea of working abroad really appeals to me. In conclusion, there are many paths I can walk after finishing my Master’s program. What path exactly is still written in the stars. I do know, however, that I am going to enjoy the final six months of these studies!
