  • Testimonial van Lauren van Straalen

    "The double degree is a very inspiring programme, where students receive a high-quality education, are challenged to critically assess theories and take different stands on certain issues."

    "I chose the International Development Economics double degree because it offered broad fundamentals in the academic fields of international economics, international business and development. The combination of the University of Groningen and the Georg-August Universität in Germany has given me a general knowledge of international economics and allowed me to specialize in developmental issues.

    My biggest wish is to work for an organization that promotes development in developing countries such as the United Nations or the World Bank. However, I first want to gain some experience in the commercial sector. This is why I applied for an internship at Heineken in the Democratic Republic of Congo, which I will start in September.

    The double degree is a very inspiring programme, where students receive a high-quality education, are challenged to critically assess theories and take different stands on certain issues. I would definitely choose this programme again as it has provided me with useful fundamentals, not only in light of a future career, but also for my personal development."
