My choice

To be honest, I faced a hard time deciding what I wanted to study. The many opportunities overwhelmed me. After really thinking it through it became clear that I wanted to study Business and I wanted to study in English. So I chose to study at CBS, partly because of its reputation and partly because of the international environment that it offers.

However, CBS offers a range of programmes taught in English, so again I had to go through a minor “struggle” before I decided to apply for BSc SEM. I chose BSc SEM because of its broadness and the economic courses it offers. I also assumed that the quarter-system would match my way of studying, and luckily it did.

My programme

What I really like about BSc SEM is the combination of courses and that you are given proper tools to overcome certain problems, thus I feel that the academic part makes great sense. In the beginning, I was a little overwhelmed by the amount of group work, since I preferred working alone. Eventually, it was just a matter of time, since I did not just get used to it but I actually began to enjoy working in groups.

When deciding which study programme to choose I did not pay any attention to the social aspect of BSc SEM. I only focused on the academic part of it and how it matched my interests. However, the social part of BSc SEM surprised me a lot. Even though there are many students, there is still a comfortable and friendly atmosphere during lectures, which I had not expected at all.

My advice

1
I would advice you to do proper research before choosing a bachelor’s programme. According to me, you should define your academic interests and use these as a base when choosing a bachelor’s programme.

2
CBS provides a range of opportunities to expand your social network. I would advice you to grab these by participating in student activities since it will only benefit you in the end.

3
My last advice for you will definitely be to remember also to enjoy being a student at CBS. In order to do that, I would highly recommend that you use a calendar.
