    "A challenging and diverse job"

    'After graduating I began an internship at NIBC, a Dutch merchant bank. Soon I could join the NIBC Infrastructure & Renewables team. We finance projects ranging from road and prison building to telecom infrastructure. We were one of the banks that financed the A15, a motorway connecting Maasvlakte 2 to Rotterdam. In my Master I specialised in corporate finance and quantitative skills. During my studies I was taught many aspects of the business environment. This was very useful in my work.'

    Petra Besselink: "Studying real-life events"

    Petra Besselink (third year student) tells more about her study Economics and Business Economics and explains her bachelor thesis subject: promotional activities during football championships and market values.

    'Business Economics is all about studying real-life events. We learned about stock prices and bond prices, how to evaluate a financial report to judge the value of companies and what choices to make when it comes to investments. I knew nothing about this topic before, so it was very interesting to me. I like the combination of different subjects within my specialization Business Economics. Combining accountancy, mathematics, and finance: it's a great recipe for a fascinating bachelor programme.'

    Groningen is just perfect for a Bachelor's student

    I decided to come to the Netherlands because I thought it would be somewhat more challenging and interesting than the usual destinations Bulgarian students choose to acquire a degree. The idea of studying in such an international environment, where I can meet students from all over the world really appealed to me.

    Here I am given the chance to set my own agenda. I have control over my study process, and what I achieve is determined solely by me. Studying in Groningen is not easy and you have to work hard. Nevertheless, you can have a lot of fun as well as extraordinary experiences, which makes Groningen so unique. It is a wonderful town for students because there is so much to do outside the university as well. I am happy that I have chosen Groningen, it is just perfect for a Bachelor's student!
