  • Testimonial van Nancy Edwards

    Nancy Edwards, MSc International Business and Management

    What I really like about the IB&M programme is its academic approach and the diversity of courses offered by the faculty, which helps you to orient yourself towards the future.

    "Groningen is a really beautiful city that offers everything a student can wish for. Its closeness to the countryside and North Sea only adds to its attractiveness. The University of Groningen with its scientific approach was a very interesting choice for me as the educational system is so different compared to traditional business studies in my home country, the United States. After graduating from the University of North Carolina with a Master's in Accounting, I moved to Germany to do mainly internships and work. This was also the time when I first heard about the University of Groningen. As I wanted to enhance my knowledge beyond Accounting and do some more general business studies, I eventually moved to Groningen in to start the IB&M Master. I plan also to do a PhD. What I really like about the IB&M programme is its academic approach and the diversity of courses offered by the faculty, which helps you to orient yourself towards the future. Although it was challenging getting used to the educational approach, I now feel very comfortable. With the right amount of effort the workload is certainly doable. Professors and staff members of the Faculty are very supportive while you follow your programme. The IB&M Master is definitely a programme I would choose again. I really feel comfortable: in Groningen and at the University."
