“I chose Erasmus University not only because it’s high in rankings but also because it’s so close to the port which is important for Supply Chain Management studies. I like that the study programme is challenging: if you want to learn new things, then it’s just what you’re looking for.”

“My favourite thing about studying here is the really good quality of education combined with meeting amazing people and having a great time – I didn’t have to sacrifice one for the other. What I love about Rotterdam is the friendliness of the locals, the modern infrastructure, and affordability compared to other big European cities.”

“I believe the unique academic approach here enabled me to critically examine existing policies and look beyond traditional methods to contextualize and implement policies on the ground. I choose Erasmus University because of the critical discourse and the diversity of the student population.”
