I only stumbled upon this study by accident. It might not have been my original plan, but I am happy that did not work out, otherwise, I would not have been here now. I wanted to live in a town that gives you a village feel but can offer you everything a city can. Leeuwarden has become my home and my classmates have become a surrogate family. For long I have been fascinated by economics and its power in the world. I truly believe money is power. I also care a lot about sustainability and human rights. This program combines these two interests perfectly. I am learning a wide variety of basic knowledge, I learn about effective and responsible leadership and I am learning a lot of useful skills like writing, presenting and communicating. This I can hopefully use in becoming an expert in sustainable investments. On top of that, this program supports personal development. I was one of the first to study this new program. It makes me feel like an adventurer, even though the program is still figuring a lot out still. Though this gives us the opportunity to help shape it. All in all, I am happy and proud to call myself a student of this program.
