Economics and Business Economics Amin Noori Economics has always been a passion of mine, and after my second gap year from high school, I was ready for a new and exciting journey. IBEB has allowed me to really look at everyday occurrences in a more rational sense. Frequent reminders of how essential macro and micro-economics are, can be found in all parts of day-to-day life. This is what really interests me and what attracted me to this subject. The past year, I wanted to get more engaged with the international community at the Erasmus University. Therefore, after applying, I attained the position of Vice-President at ESN. It has been a very fulfilling year, organizing events and creating a welcoming environment for international students during their stay in the Netherlands. My time so far at Erasmus School of Economics has been amazing. I’ve made lifelong friends and tried things I never thought I would. The city of Rotterdam has truly become my home away from home. Its modern architecture and great international vibe truly allow for it to live up to its nickname, “Manhattan on the Maas’’ Lastly, I want to point out that being part of Erasmus School of Economics opens doors for many opportunities. It is up to you to go and grab them! Hrisyana Doytchinova When deciding on where to continue my studies, I was advised by both my Economics teacher as well as a friend to choose for this programme. I wanted to do something a bit broader as the field of Economics is quite broad in itself. But I was also looking for a bachelor programme where the courses complete each other. IBEB was exactly that! It incorporates Economics and Business Economics courses very well and they also complete each in a harmonic manner. Moreover, the study is divided into blocks, so you can focus really well on your subjects each block. This doesn’t mean that it’s easy though; IBEB requires you to plan your studies well, because it’s quite intensive. But I think that this skill comes in handy when continuing your studies and in your future career. Besides the study itself, I also really like Rotterdam; it’s multicultural, has beautiful spots like the Kralingse Plas and offers many career opportunities. And when you decide to study here,take my advice: besides obviously focussing on your studies you should definitely buy a bike! I can’t live without it anymore and it gets me everywhere from the Hague to Delft and back to Rotterdam! [-]
