"Strategic Management is the only program that offers me a great business scope with in-depth knowledge about creating and implementing a strategy. You get to learn what it is like to be in the top of an organization and decide on its direction into the future (...) What I particularly like about this Master's program is that there are several courses in which we use real-life examples. We discuss what went wrong in a company, what should have been done, and how it all relates to the theory we learn."

"Being able to look at the bigger picture, but also keeping an eye at the details at virtually the same time is an important skill I acquired during my studies. Next to that, I learned not to take everything for granted when somebody puts down his opinion. Is there proof? Where are the numbers? Are there reliable sources to build a particular opinion on?"

"Tilburg University gave me a set of skills and knowledge which now I apply in my everyday job. As a consultant, analysis and research are very important to understand client’s problems and frame solutions. Additionally, the knowledge I gained in the Master's program constitutes a very firm basis when it comes to strategy and organization. Other skills such as leadership and communication are useful to work effectively with teams from both sides, firm and client."
