Amber DekkerBachelor's student
"I wanted to find a study course that would educate me in several different fields. My interests range from sociology to economics and psychology, and I really enjoy taking classes that relate to all those areas."
Adam DziedzicBachelor's student
"Perhaps Tilburg is not London or New York City, but it is definitely big enough for you to have a lot of fun, yet small enough for you to accidently bump into someone you know when in Town. Its great!"
"We prepare you for working in international contexts with professionals from different cultures and backgrounds."
