I have always wanted to study something where I could combine language with different courses with an international angle. At BLC you have a bunch of different courses all with an international angle, which was a good fit for me. Since I didn’t know what I wanted to spend my life working with, the broadness of the topics at BLC was a good fit for me and a way of trying out a little bit of everything.
At BLC the social life has been very important to me. In general there is a lot of solidarity and unity at BLC, between new and older students. You’ll find all types of people among the students at BLC which I found to be very inspiring. I have also been part of the party committee as well as the team of intro guides, making the social life at BLC even more important to me.
The, to me, most exciting course at BLC has been British and American Studies, while I found courses like Microeconomics and Corporate Finance to be the most challenging. The cool thing was though, that after having completed Microeconomics and starting a new semester, I understood that what I had learned in the course is very useful.
Before you decide whether or not you want to study at BLC, there are some important things to consider. First of all your language courses (in French, Spanish or German) may be challenging to you. Do you want to study your language every semester for the next three years?
Second, BLC is one of the programs at CBS with the least focus on economics. So if you love economics and math, maybe you won’t be satisfied studying at CBS.
And third, it is important that you find a balance between the social and the academic part that is right for you. Both take time, so consider where you wish to focus your energy
