There are many international students at Nyenrode Business University, such as Natacha Rodrigues Soares from Brazil and Sabri Assali from Canada. Both have just started the one-year Full-time MBA program. Here they tell us about their studies and their new lives in Amsterdam.“At the beginning of this year, South America signed a trade agreement with Europe. That made me want to learn more about the European market: how everything works, how people do business, how they negotiate and so on,” says Brazilian student Natacha on her decision to pursue an MBA in Europe. “I then chose Nyenrode due to the content of the program. You learn to do business, but at the same time focus on making a positive impact on society. That really appealed to me. I also chose Nyenrode because a relatively high number of female students enroll in this Full-time MBA.” Sabri previously studied in the Middle East and North America, and was eager to add Europe to the list. He had two reasons for choosing Nyenrode: “First, the small classes here compared to other universities. Second, the program includes several forward-thinking topics, such as big data. You don’t see that in many other MBA programs. I can use my knowledge in those areas to make better decisions in the future.”
