Brad Kanters, current student of Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, reflects on the benefits of practicing sports as part of his education at Nyenrode.

‘’Nyenrode has a clear vision when it comes to sports because it wants to create responsible leaders. By “responsible,” I mean fit, healthy and energetic leaders. As the saying goes: “A healthy mind in a healthy body.”

Each term we are offered a number of sports classes and one of them really caught my eye: boxing classes from former International Boxing Organization World Champion in the Middleweight class Raymond Joval.

Nyenrode not only offers world-class education, it offers sports classes at a world-class level as well. Before I started at Nyenrode, I did not really feel fit. But after a year of exercising three times per week, I feel better than ever.

Better equipped for the future

I have learned that if you work hard at sports, your body feels much better. You feel better equipped to take on the future. Participating in sports three times a week enhances your resilience a great deal. If you are to be a future business leader, you need to feel good, confident and in shape. The sports classes of the Bachelor of Science in Business Administration gave me that.

Nyenrode is a university that doesn’t just help you advance your career to the highest level, it enables you to push your physical fitness to the highest level as well.''
