We are the clear number one in the Benelux when it comes to the effectiveness of our career services in supporting student recruitment. Apart from that we also jump 8 places for career status which is measured according to the seniority in position and the company size. Furthermore, as good as all of our students have secured well-paid jobs within three months of completing their education. In all this is a great achievement and a true reflection of the added value our programme is offering.”

The successful careers of our graduates are equally reflected in their salaries where we are in the top 30. Apart from the careers aspect the programme has gained 15 places with regard to international course experience. Finally, we do well in view of aims achieved and with regard to value for money which is a key criterion for students comparing various programmes.
