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.

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!

I went to Japan for half a year and it’s safe to say I had the best time of my life (I know how cliché this sounds, but it’s a cliché for a reason). I feel that LAS really prepared me to live in another country for a semester, as I was used to study in an international environment.

A friend told me about Liberal Arts and the flexibility it offers. I decided give it a try since I am broadly interested and good at many things, but don’t have that one thing I wanted to base my later career life on.

Getting as much as information as possible will make you confident with your choice. I would advise everyone who still has doubts, to ask about everything and anything. Tilburg University has great staff members who are always up to answer any questions!

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!
