I am Vanesa from Bulgaria – currently a second-year undergraduate student at Fontys International Business School in The Netherlands. I remember how afraid I was couple of years ago when I faced the difficult decision of whether to study abroad. I assume that many of you are also wondering what to do with your lives. Therefore, I decided to write this article and just share my experience as a student at Fontys International Campus Venlo.
And the reason why I chose to do so via Mladiinfo is because, thanks to Mladiinfo, I found out about the International Youth Conference on Biodiversity in 2010, and had some of the most amazing times of my life in Aichi, Japan. Thank you Mladiinfo once again! You can read my article about the experience here!
I am studying International Business and Management Studies at Fontys International Business School (FIBS) which is a university of applied sciences. This means that I have the chance to apply the theory into practice. I often get to work in teams on case studies based on real life examples from the business world. My favorite case study refers to analyzing the potential of the markets of Argentina, Chile, Mexico and Brazil, and recommending the German wholesaler Metro Cash & Carry on where to invest. And now as a second-year student at FIBS, I am part of a student company which is a real company established by Fontys’ students operating on the Dutch market. It is really interesting and beneficial to see the exact process of how to do business. No doubt that having the chance to apply my own knowledge in the real world is a great learning opportunity, and it boosts my CV a lot. A piece of advice: check the added values of the curricula at the university from your dreams very carefully.
