What made you choose this degree programme?

After finishing training as a banker, I wanted to further deepen my expertise.

In which respect have or haven’t your expectations been fulfilled?

The RUB provides subject-specific training at a very high level; I was able to implement the acquired knowledge during my internships with good results. All-rounders are offered a huge number of options – my expectations have not been met insofar as I don’t see enough options to specialise. But that’s what the master’s degree is for!

Which aspect of your degree programme do you enjoy most?

The time I spent with my fellow students, “finance and accounting” and the GC-Mania, of course [party organised by Management and Economics students that takes place once per semester]!

What has been your biggest challenge to date?

The exam phases, no question about that! I would like to take the opportunity to apologise to my friends who never get to see me during those phases (laughs)!

What would you like to become after completing your degree?

Many doors are open to Management and Economics graduates. I can picture myself working in the area of mergers & acquisitions.

Which advice would you like to give to students who consider enrolling in this degree programme?

Check out various study programmes offered at different universities. Imagine you’ll come to a university where it’s impossible for you to immerse yourself in those subjects that you’re interested in. It takes time to find the university that suits you, but show some stamina and you will master that challenge. My other advice is to not leave revision until exams are upon you, as this will not suffice to pass them. Hang in there and give it your all! Once you’ve successfully completed the basic phase, you are given the opportunity to set up your own schedule – you are 100% free to choose the subjects you want, thus deepening your knowledge in those fields that interest you. Good luck!
