All coaches have experience in real companies
My name is Hrisiyana and I am a 1st year student at Windesheim. I have chosen International Business for several reasons. The main one is that I am from Bulgaria, which makes me an international student. Later in my business career path I want to work abroad or with foreign companies. To me, the programme at Windesheim is the best of all similar programmes in the Netherlands. One of the things that really grabbed me, was the opportunity to learn another language. I chose Dutch, because it is important to me to learn and speak the language of the country where I am currently living and will probably be working after I graduate.
There is also something really unique about our university. In addition to the main subjects like marketing and sales, finance, supply chain management and human resources, there is learning and development. This helps you to become your better self and later a better professional. I love the personal approach that is offered, with small classes of 12 to 15 students and project groups of 3 or 4 students. The coaches are really helpful and approachable. They are ready to answer any question and help you with your assignments, which is great because they all have a professional background and experience in real companies. There is also the opportunity to be a more independent student and to manage your own pace of work and choose what to do and when to do it, while still observing the deadlines and guidelines from the coaches.
The campus itself is really nice and modern. International Business is in building X, which is entirely made from glass panels. It makes the classroom and the learning environment really calm and refreshing. There are a lot of spaces where you can study and work on projects, which I love to visit. In addition, Zwolle is a lovely city with beautiful architecture and interesting places to go to.
I am really looking forward to my second year with the internship I need to do for a company of my choice, and of course the study abroad, for which I can choose from over 100 universities all around the world.
